Tips to improve fuel economy, pay attention to your right foot.

It’s so simple that anyone can do. Your consumption may decrease by 15% if you drive with a speed below 100 km / h or 62 miles / hour. Now I love speed, like any other driver, but let’s not lie to ourselves, we want economic consumption or we want to go faster. I think like any other driver you love the speed, but let’s not lie to ourselves, we want economic consumption or we want to go faster. Sounds bad, but with how you drive slower will help you to save more fuel. Why? If you pass 100 km/h or 62 miles/hour, you will need more power from the engine to defeat aerodynamic resistance, which means higher consumption.

If you’re not on the highway, or other exceptional roads of our country, you should not press the brake pedal very much. If you see it’s red light at traffic lights, do not accelerate and take your time to brake suddenly. Try to moderate the speed in a secure manner.  It takes more energy to start from a standing position, unless you are already in motion. If you can do that will considerably improve consumption.

    ECU vacuum restriction, in conjunction with less restrictive air filter, are sure to give you up to 40% savings on gas mileage.This I have proven on my 16i Rocam Ford Ikon. I now use 6.4l / 100 km.
