- Maintain constant speed:
Continuously changing speeds can maximize the fuel consumption. When you are on an open road or highway; keep a constant pace.

- Don’t idle for a long time:
If you are standing on traffic light or stuck in a stop and go situation, turning off engine will reduce fuel consumption.
- Avoid half clutch riding:
While driving; do not ride over half engaged clutch. It will waste power and reduce efficiency.
- Be in the right gears:
Try to shift on the top gears as fast as possible. Everyone knows their car’s power delivery behavior, so as per that change gears in low rev range to gain maximum efficiency.
- Do not cross speed limits:
A car will burn less fuel on speed of 40-50 kmph than on 80-100 kmph. So don’t over speed unless you are in hurry or on expressway.
