Recommendations for economic operation

Fuel consumption of your car significantly depends on your manner of driving. Achievement of the smallest fuel consumption depends on when as well as where you go.

Pay, please, attention to the following instructions as thus it is possible to save significantly on fuel and on repair.

  • Slowly begin the movement softly disperse.
  • You hold the engine always adjusted and periodically you carry out works on maintenance. Thereby you promote increase in service life of elements and decrease in expenses on operation.
  • Use the conditioner (if is available) only if necessary.
  • On bad streets move at a small speed.
  • You watch the ordered pressure in tires. The correct pressure in tires causes long service life of tires and small fuel consumption.
  • You keep at the appropriate distance from other cars that it was not necessary to brake sharply. Thus, wear of brake shoes decreases. Besides, such manner of the movement is more economic as repeated dispersal to the normal speed of the movement requires additional fuel.
  • You do not transport unnecessary freight in the car.
  • At the movement do not leave a pedal on a brake pedal. It can result in useless and premature wear of brake shoes, damages of brakes and high fuel consumption.
  • Inadequate balancing of wheels leads to what tires cost under the wrong corner to each other so they wear out quicker. Besides, compensation of inadequate balancing requires additional force that in turn causes additional fuel consumption.
  • Opening of windows at great speed also causes the increased fuel consumption; it belongs as to a side, and head wind. In such conditions it is recommended to avoid a part of losses at the expense of small speeds.

For profitability and safety it is extremely important to contain the car in an excellent state. Therefore it is necessary to perform in due time test works and maintenance.
