Fuel Saving Tips

Get to know your cruise control

Late model cars have cruise control systems designed for optimal acceleration, without jerky movements that increase engine and transmission wear. Try it for yourself: As soon as safely possible after a stop, find when the "resume" function will engage. This is as early as 10kph in many new cars. Many such systems are optimized for ideal fuel consumption as well. Recent engine control systems find optimal acceleration automatically. And the faster your car gets up to speed in that manner, the sooner it can get into high-mileage cruise mode!
