How to improve your Car's fuel Efficiency ..

Recently went to CII maintenance expo and came across information from Petroleum Conservation Research  Association for improving the fuel efficiency of our four wheelers.. I found the it really informative and it has actually clarified lot of confusions. Few of the important points discussed were :

1. Stop the vehicles if the wait time is more than 15 seconds ( Based on research done for Delhi Roads ). I used to think that its 1 minute ..


2. Most of the cars are most economical if they are run at 45 kmph , Very tough to ride at such low speeds though!

3. Try to run the vehicle in top gears. It should be correct gear too !

4. Use of clutch only for changing gears.

5. Cleaning Air Filter, Fine tuning of engine.
