40 Fuel Economy Tips & Factors Affecting Your Car's Fuel Efficiency. Improve Gas Mileage.
40 FUEL ECONOMY TIPS
TIP NUMBER 1: Do not exceed the indicated speed limit.
TIP NUMBER 2: Do not open your window when travelling especially at high
TIP NUMBER 3: Avoid packing items on top of your car.
TIP NUMBER 4: Take the aerodynamic shape of your vehicle into account when
buying your vehicle.
TIP NUMBER 5: Inflate your tyres properly.
TIP NUMBER 6: Prefer rib type tyres which are better with regard to rolling
resistance than block type tyres. Choose low aspect ratio tyres which are
stiffer, allowing for less flexing under load, thus they typically have
lower rolling resistance compared to high aspect ratio tyres.
TIP NUMBER 7: Buy second hand, good condition tires.
TIP NUMBER 8: Choose a vehicle suitable for your needs. Do you really need
a power-hungry car?
TIP NUMBER 9: Using 4-wheel drive reduces fuel economy. Prefer to use
2-wheel drive cars.
TIP NUMBER 10: Remove the excessive weight from your vehicle.
TIP NUMBER 11: Fuel also contributes to weight.
TIP NUMBER 12: Plan your journey more wisely. Take the amount of traffic,
possibly congested routes and the time of the day into account.
TIP NUMBER 13: In cold weather, wait for the engine to warm up a bit.
TIP NUMBER 14: Incorrect axle alignment influences rolling resistance and
increases fuel consumption.
TIP NUMBER 15: Prefer not to drive when raining due to water drag effect as
you drive on the road.
TIP NUMBER 16: Stop aggressive driving.
TIP NUMBER 17: Do not over-rev.
TIP NUMBER 18: Gear fast, run slow and accelerate slowly.
TIP NUMBER 19: Avoid unnecessary idling. Turn off the engine if you
anticipate a wait.
TIP NUMBER 20: Use overdrive gears and cruise control when appropriate.
TIP NUMBER 21: Any electrical equipment in use worsens the fuel economy of
the vehicle with air conditioning being the biggest culprit.
TIP NUMBER 22: Exploit the force of gravity when going down the hills.
TIP NUMBER 23: Avoid coming to a complete stop whenever possible.
TIP NUMBER 24: When approaching red traffic lights, either let the car roll
itself on gear or select the neutral gear to roll it.
TIP NUMBER 25: Keep your engine tuned. Tuning your engine according to your
owner's manual can increase gas mileage by an average of 4%.
TIP NUMBER 26: Change your oil regularly.
TIP NUMBER 27: Check and replace air filters regularly.
TIP NUMBER 28: Consider the alternative vehicles.
TIP NUMBER 29: Hybrid Electric Vehicles offer another option for car
buyers. These vehicles combine the benefits of gasoline engines and
electric motors and can be configured to achieve different objectives, such
as improved fuel economy and increased power.
TIP NUMBER 30: Consider using the public transport such as underground,
overground or bus.
TIP NUMBER 31: Use a bicycle or just walk if your destination is near.
TIP NUMBER 32: Get in the habit of saving all your fuel receipts, recording
distance travelled and fuel economy (MPG).
TIP NUMBER 33: Leave for your destination a little early so you don't feel
pressure to drive faster, brake
later and otherwise fall back into bad habits.
TIP NUMBER 34: Travelling at a constant speed on a freeway within a flow of
traffic (in the same direction) is more efficient than going the same speed
TIP NUMBER 35: If you regularly travel the same roads, make an effort to
TIP NUMBER 36: In multi-lane traffic, choose the "lane of least resistance"
to avoid unnecessary and unpredictable braking/changes in speed.
TIP NUMBER 37: Parking in the shade will keep the inside of your vehicle
cooler, which can help you minimize use of air conditioning.
TIP NUMBER 38: Maintain appropriate following distance to prevent constant
brakes which will reduce your speed.
TIP NUMBER 39: New forced induction engines tend to use less fuel than
their naturally aspirated cousins. Forced induction includes any type of turbocharger or Supercharger that forces air into the combustion
TIP NUMBER 40: Constantly investigate to find out new ways to improve fuel
And SOME MORE TIPS:
TIP NUMBER 41: Rough asphalt increases tyre losses by ~ 7% compared to
TIP NUMBER 42: Do not change gears excessively. Use brakes to slow down.
TIP NUMBER 43: Low gears shifted at low revs give max torque. Higher gears
at higher revs give max power. So use torque or power depending on the
TIP NUMBER 44: Changing to small diameter drive tyres increases engine RPM
but may disturb fuel economy.
TIP NUMBER 45: Share your car with family members or friends. If 5 people
are going to the same destination, it is sensible to use just one car
rather than more.

2014 Honda City 1.5V Start-Up and Full Vehicle Tour
Hello everyone! This is a long awaited video as a lot of you have been
requesting for a 2014 City. Well, now I am able to upload one for you all,
