Re: Car Related Questions
accelerate slower. the slower you accelerate, the less fuel you burn.
i presume you want a dramatic change, and this is the most cost effective although most frustrating way!
little things help though, like putting the car in a low gear and use engine braking aswell as regular braking to slow down rather than digging the clutch right in, as the effort in keeping the engine running comes from the cars motion rather that way rather than sticking the clutch in and the car uses fuel to keep itself running. this also applies when pulling up to a standstill, clutch it as late as possible without stalling and you save a lil bit!
sorry if you drive an auto cos that last bit will be useless!
