Increasing fuel economy

● Accelerate slowly and smoothly. Maintain cruising speeds with a constant accelerator position.

● Drive at moderate speeds on the highway.

Driving at high speed lowers fuel economy.

● Avoid unnecessary stopping and braking.

Maintain a safe distance behind other vehicles.

● Use a proper gear range which suits road conditions. On level roads, shift into high gear as soon as possible.

● Avoid unnecessary engine idling.

● Keep your engine tuned up.

● Follow the recommended periodic maintenance schedule.

● Keep the tires inflated to the correct pressure.

Low tire pressure increases tire wear and lowers fuel economy.

● Keep the wheels in correct alignment. Improper alignment increases tire wear and lowers fuel economy.

● Air conditioner (if so equipped) operation lowers fuel economy. Use the air conditioner only when necessary.

● When cruising at highway speeds, it is more economical to use the air conditioner and leave the windows closed to reduce drag.

● Use the recommended viscosity engine oil.
