Fuel Saving Tips

Coasting to save petrol or not

If you are going down hill dont coast by putting in neutral because the engine will have to use fuel to keep the engine ticking over but if you leave in gear the car momentum will keep the engine turning over and the and the fuel system will have cut off the fuel due to lack of demand ( foot off accelerator ) as it tries to lower the revs to tickover . . if you have live MPG trip just watch it go into the 100's of mpg ... Note this only applies to fuel injection systems
