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 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. See “Capacities and recommended fuel/lubricants” in the “Technical and consumer information” section of this manual.
