Did you know that efficient driving of your vehicle allows you to reduce the consumption of up to 25% of fuel by avoiding CO2 emissions?
The sustainability of the environment not only depends on actions such as recycling and reuse of materials. As driving professionals it is also possible to contribute to lower pollution levels and energy savings.
- Avoid accelerations and braking in situations that are not necessary, for example when we perceive the change of light at a traffic light. On the contrary, it is recommended to make a progressive gear change so that the car stops or advances by its own inertia and properly. In accelerations and braking increases fuel consumption.
- Maintain an adequate distance in relation to other cars, so that the circulation is safe and a regular speed is maintained.
- Raise the foot of the accelerator and take advantage of the inertia of the car when it comes down slopes. The gearshift must not be left in neutral: it is dangerous and consumes more fuel.
- In the curves the best thing is not to brake, as many drivers do, but to anticipate it so that the vehicle loses speed by itself and we are correcting the road, if possible, with the brake. Thus, at the time of approaching the curve we will have the ideal speed.
- When we are facing a situation of intense traffic, for example a traffic jam or a caravan, it is necessary to roll in the longest possible gear to avoid accelerations or braking that we have talked about previously.
- Check the tire pressure. 3% of the car’s consumption depends on the tire pressure, so it is important that they always circulate at the right pressure.
Your driving can help you save and take care of the environment!
