Guide to Eco Driving

Keep Your Car as Light as Possible

For every 100kg of weight in your trunk, fuel efficiency decreases up to 6% on a mid-size sedan. A vehicle’s fuel efficiency is also very sensitive to air friction. When you install a roof rack, fuel efficiency may decrease by up to 20%.

Maintain the Tire’s Recommended Air Pressure

If you are driving with tires that are 50kPA less than the recommended air pressure, fuel efficiency may decrease by up to 6% in the city, and 4% on the highway.

Turn off the engine or Shift the gear into neutral position

If your car is idle for over one minute with the engine running, it consumes more fuel than when starting your car. In 10 minutes, your car will consume 130cc of fuel.

Avoid Quick Starts and Sudden Stops

Gradual acceleration enhances fuel efficiency. Accelerating about 20km/h through five seconds enhances fuel efficiency by about 11%

Use Engine Brakes

Taking your feet off accelerator to slow down will enhance your fuel efficiency by 2%.

Use Air Conditioning Sparingly
