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.

Up until the 1970s, car producers didn’t think too much about fuel consumption. But the big oil crisis changed that, and by 1978 the biggest selling point for a car was low consumption. Nowadays, buyers still look at how much fuel the vehicle burns, and we are looking forward to a time when manufacturers declare a “minus” consumption and drivers can claim a bucketload of petrol for each 100 kilometers of mileage.

Statistics show that the average capacity engine with 140 Hp has fallen dramatically over the last 30 years. It was 2.5 liters in 1990, and now 1.4-liter engines are able to produce the same power. This downsizing became possible thanks to turbines and more efficient engine construction. Are we happy about this? No, we’re not!

One common mistake drivers who love to economize often make is to drive in high gear, as it seems that this makes the engine run more smoothly and burn less fuel. It may also seem that in such a mode the engine will go for longer without repair. But the reality is very different. High gears increase engine load and make the car consume more fuel. So high gears are a great idea only if you want to kill the engine and buy a new car.

Up until the 1970s, car producers didn’t think too much about fuel consumption. But the big oil crisis changed that, and by 1978 the biggest selling point for a car was low consumption. Nowadays, buyers still look at how much fuel the vehicle burns, and we are looking forward to a time when manufacturers declare a “minus” consumption and drivers can claim a bucketload of petrol for each 100 kilometers of mileage.

Statistics show that the average capacity engine with 140 Hp has fallen dramatically over the last 30 years. It was 2.5 liters in 1990, and now 1.4-liter engines are able to produce the same power. This downsizing became possible thanks to turbines and more efficient engine construction. Are we happy about this? No, we’re not!

One common mistake drivers who love to economize often make is to drive in high gear, as it seems that this makes the engine run more smoothly and burn less fuel. It may also seem that in such a mode the engine will go for longer without repair. But the reality is very different. High gears increase engine load and make the car consume more fuel. So high gears are a great idea only if you want to kill the engine and buy a new car.
