Long engine warm-up is thought to reduce fuel consumption. But actually modern cars are built with new worldwide legislation in mind, which bans a long warm-up. Usually it takes 30–60 seconds to get the engine warm enough for driving. Consumption figures won’t be that different with a warm-up or without it. But think of how much fuel you burn during a five- minute warm-up. That’s probably a bucketload of petrol each winter.

In 1984, the Shell Eco-marathon competition was established. The idea is that anyone can compete for the title of the most economical car each year. Engineers have exactly 1 liter of petrol (or 1 kW of energy) for the race. The winner is the car that can go the maximum distance without additional petrol. How far could your car go on 1 liter of petrol? At the Shell Eco-marathon in 2020 the record was 2735 km!

When looking at the fuel consumption of modern cars, it’s interesting to remember that the first truck (the Foden steam wagon) claimed to consume 210 kg of coal per 100 km of driving. It would be interesting to know what the equivalent consumption of coal per 100 km would be for modern cars.

In 1984, the Shell Eco-marathon competition was established. The idea is that anyone can compete for the title of the most economical car each year. Engineers have exactly 1 liter of petrol (or 1 kW of energy) for the race. The winner is the car that can go the maximum distance without additional petrol. How far could your car go on 1 liter of petrol? At the Shell Eco-marathon in 2020 the record was 2735 km!

When looking at the fuel consumption of modern cars, it’s interesting to remember that the first truck (the Foden steam wagon) claimed to consume 210 kg of coal per 100 km of driving. It would be interesting to know what the equivalent consumption of coal per 100 km would be for modern cars.
