It changes gears in the rises and in low revolution
Between 2,000 and 2,500 rpm in gasoline cars and between 1,500 and 2,000 rpm in diesel . If you are not sure, you can also be guided by the speed : up to 80 km / h it is advisable to change quickly from the first to the fourth gear.
Maintain a constant speed. Try to drive fluently, avoid sudden changes of pace and drive with long gears whenever you can. Your car will thank you.
In prolonged stops (more than one minute), turn off the engine . With the engine idling the fuel consumption is between 0.5 and 0.7 liters per hour.
Go refuel at specific times
There are service stations and days of the week in which fuel is cheaper than in others. Look at the ones in your area and take advantage when prices reach their minimum.
If, in addition to saving , we want to take care of the environment , electric cars are increasingly a very good option. Large cities are adapting to them with the installation of various loading points, and even the General Directorate of Traffic ( DGT ) rewards its drivers with an ecofriendly mark.
Not to mention that the fuel expense is 0
