lol, funny ways to reduce car's fuel consumption by moderator.
anyway, for me I will ensure my foot as light as possible and the RPM will below 2.5K at all time.
This method greatly help in fuel consumption.


Try to relax while driving, no need to rush, if can drive with one hand on steering, the other one on armrest. You don't go heavy foot with one hand, right?

may i add? (if not yet mentioned) how about reduce or totally avoid from idling excessively, either to warm-up or waiting in the car. i believe most people nowadays are aware of the unnecessary idling for new modern cars.

Of course. For newer cars, just start and go, drive slowly below 2.5k-3k RPM for 10-15 minutes. Some cars will have both the water & oil temperature gauge. As long as both reach 90 Celsius, then can rev 9 9.

However, there are still some people with the old mentality to warm up 5-10 minutes ... smile_blackeye.gif

5-10 minutes is too long, waste fuel already. As long as oil is up and running drive slowly until reach optimum running temperature....

Got ... open door, start car. Then put bag into car. Then slowly wear socks, shoes. Then hisap rokok dulu ... maybe water plants a bit. Kutip daun, sampah a bit. Quick chat with neighbour (seksi girl tengah sidai baju smile_tongue.gif only chance to talk, otherwise she hides inside the house ) ... etc.
