Seven tips for worrying about rising oil prices
4hw.com.cn: the most worrying thing for drivers is the soaring oil price. Driving and saving fuel has become a hot topic, but which methods can save fuel, more people are also hearsay. Apart from the external factors, can we achieve the goal of fuel saving through our driving habits? Today, the editor will share the experience and skills of experts in the industry, and bring you to know a few fuel-efficient tips.
1. Control speed
During driving, the engine speed of the general EFI vehicle is about 2200-2500, which is the most appropriate. No matter in which gear, keep the engine speed around 2200-2500. If the vehicle fails to move at low speed and consumes no fuel, the engine will be damaged; if the engine is too high, the invalid fuel consumption will be increased and the engine will be damaged.
2. Maintain speed
The most fuel-efficient driving state is to drive in a straight line at a constant speed. The most fuel-efficient speed is 60-80km / h for small displacement vehicles and 80-100km / h for medium displacement vehicles. When the vehicle is running at an economic speed, it is the most fuel-efficient.
3. Control shift speed and driving gear
Manual control shift speed: when shifting, add a little more oil than the normal driving state, and let the speed express a little more than 2500. If the gear is shifted below 2000 rpm, the speed will decrease after shifting. If there is a feeling of out of gear, you have to refuel to find it back, but you need to consume more fuel.
Automatic driving gear: first gear for low speed or steep hillside, second gear for up and down long slope or large slope, third gear for uneven road or secondary road or when the speed is lower than 60 km in urban area, and D gear for driving when the speed is more than 60, which is fuel-efficient and quiet.
4. Soft start
Start in low gear, slowly press the accelerator pedal and accelerate. When the car reaches a certain gear speed, learn to listen to the sound of the engine to gradually change the gear from low to high. This can reduce the heating time of the engine and increase the utilization of fuel. If the accelerator is turned on to increase the speed, it will not only hurt the car, but also greatly increase the fuel consumption.
5. Lift the accelerator gently
Light lifting of the accelerator can save fuel. If the accelerator is raised sharply, it will make the engine speed suddenly reduce and play a drag role, offset part of the driving inertia, and make the car 'vibrate', thus increasing the fuel consumption.
6. Reduce braking
Braking is essentially a process of energy conversion, which means energy consumption. Therefore, when crossing or going downhill, we should raise the accelerator in advance.
7. Keep the following distance
If the road is congested, and the front car often brakes, it should keep enough following distance with the front car, so that it can slow down calmly and reduce the number of braking, so as to achieve the purpose of fuel saving.
