FACTORS AFFECTING FUEL ECONOMY
>> Frequent stopping and short distance travel consumes more fuel.
>> Needless idling at traffic lights effect fuel consumption e.g 10 minutes idling wastes 100cc of fuel.
- >> Driving at higher speed consumes more fuel than driving at steady speed of 45 to 55 Km/hr in top gear.
>> Changing of gears at the speeds mentioned below enhances the fuel efficiency.
1st to 2nd
2nd to 3rd
3rd to 4th
4th to 5th
*For Models Applicable
- >> Adulterated or less quantity of fuel dispensed by petrol pumps would indicate poor fuel efficiency too.
Clogged air filter, worn out clutch, badly tuned engine and high pollution level increase fuel consumption.
