Fuel Saving Tips

Accelerate at high RPMs and Cruise at low RPMs

Try to accelerate at or near your peak torque (this is the most efficient zone for the engine) and once you get to your desired speed shift up into a higher gear to bring the RPM to around 1500. Try experimenting to see if it makes a difference. your fuel consumption will be slighter higher while accelerating but the time you spend accellerating will be reduced which brings the average fuel consumption down. I used to accelerate at 1500-2000rpm, I decided to try accelerating at 2-3000rpm and my fuel consumption has improved by about 10%-20% over my last two fuel ups!
