Fuel-Efficient Driving Tips

Accelerate slowly

Fuel consumption increases with increased acceleration. If you softly press the accelerator pedal while driving in the city, you will consume less petrol.

Take 5 seconds to accelerate your car up to 20 kph from a stop in order to be as fuel-efficient as possible.

Keep your speed constant

You consume more fuel and spend more money than necessary when your speed falls and spikes.

According to tests, increasing and decreasing your speed by up to 5 km/h every 18 seconds might result in a 20% rise in fuel consumption.

Consider traffic

When you are driving, keep an eye out for what is coming up. Additionally, maintain a safe separation between your car and the one in front of you.

You may maintain a consistent pace and consume less fuel by closely observing what people and other vehicles are doing and projecting what they will do next. Additionally, driving this way is safer.

Keep your speed down

Respect the speed limit to avoid using too much fuel! The majority of cars, vans, pickup trucks, and SUVs are most fuel-efficient between 50 and 80 km/h.

The faster a vehicle travels over this speed, the more fuel it consumes.

Coast to slow down

Each time you brake, you lose forward motion. You can frequently tell when to slow down well in advance by keeping an eye on how the traffic is acting in the distance.

By letting up on the accelerator and coasting to slow down rather than applying the brakes, you will save money and fuel.

Overall, renting a car from Kenings can enhance your vacation experience and give you the freedom and flexibility to explore your destination on your own terms.
