Fuel prices reach sky high: Top 5 tips to increase your car's fuel efficiency

India is witnessing worst heat wave ever and fuel prices are skyrocketing, ordinary people are facing a double whammy. High temperatures mean that traveling in two-wheelers becomes difficult, while high fuel prices put a strain on the wallet. While buying an electric vehicle is an option, not everyone can own one given the high initial cost of ownership. For those of us who don’t have an electric vehicle, making the best use of our fuel tanks will be a priority, be it petrol or diesel or even CNG. Here are some ways you can take your vehicle one step further.

Use a smaller, lighter car

There are a number of things you can do to reduce your fuel consumption. It is obvious not to use the car, but if possible to take a walk or bicycle. If you must drive, try to minimize your total travel distance. One way would be to combine some shopping in your trip and optimize your route. The specific vehicle you use also matters. As a general rule of thumb, the bigger and heavier your car, the more energy and fuel it needs per kilometer.

Choosing a smaller car, rather than a large SUV, will definitely lower your fuel bill. A large SUV uses almost twice as much fuel per kilometer as a small car. Research also suggests that for every 100kg increase in vehicle weight, fuel economy increases by about 5% to 7% for a medium-sized car. So besides driving a smaller car, it’s best to reduce your load and avoid driving around with extra weight.

Use eco driving techniques

The way you drive is also important. Eco-driving means being aware of your fuel consumption and taking actions to reduce it. There are several ways to do this. Every time you brake and stop, you have to accelerate again to reach your desired speed. Accelerating takes a lot of energy and fuel, so driving smoothly, anticipating traffic and avoiding stopping will save you fuel bills.

What you want to do is go with the traffic and keep your distance from other vehicles. It also helps to keep an eye on things further down the road to avoid obstacles and unnecessary braking and acceleration. If you are in the minority of people who own a manual transmission vehicle, drive in the highest gear possible to reduce engine load and fuel consumption. And if you’re in an automated vehicle, use the “eco” setting if you have one.

Give your engine and climate a break

Another simple tip is to stop unnecessary idling with the engine still running. A small car usually consumes one liter of fuel per hour when idling, while for a large SUV this is almost two liters per hour. Of course, we regularly get stuck while waiting in traffic and generally can’t do much about it other than try to drive outside rush hour when the roads are less dense. In other cases, we can change things. For example, idling while a vehicle is parked consumes fuel unnecessarily. Simply put: turn off your car when you wait for the traffic light to turn green, or buy a car with a stationary start/stop function.

Turn off the AC

Most people may not realize this, but running your air conditioner can consume quite a bit of extra fuel: somewhere between 4% and 8% of total fuel consumption. Using the fan instead uses less energy than air conditioning. Or better yet, turn the windows down a bit for fresh air when you’re driving around town. However, this will not be possible in the current heat wave conditions of Delhi-NCR and elsewhere. So decide wisely!

Keep your tires inflated

It also pays to keep your tires inflated, which can save you between 2% and 4% fuel. Pressurized tires use more fuel to drive and thus reduce efficiency. Nowadays you can check the tire pressure at fuel pumps, so it is advisable to have your tire pressure checked when you refuel. Also, your car is designed to be aerodynamically efficient. Anything that changes that, including roof racks, bull bars and bike racks, will come with an additional fuel fine, especially at higher speeds, such as on the highway.
