Fuel Saving Tips

Do not Compare Too Much

Comparing your vehicle's mpg with other vehicles especially with smaller engines would often frustrate you. Always compare with vehicles of equal engine capacity and of same body type. Better yet calculate mpg * 1000 cc value to get a engine capacity neutral mpg value when comparing with vehicles of different engine size. Eg a car with 1.0L engine does 15kpl, and a car with 1.5L engine does 10kpl are equivalent because you compromise performance for fuel economy and vice versa.
