Sometimes we struggle to work out how much fuel our car uses on the road, but the formula is very simple. Let’s imagine you’ve driven 90 km and used 6 liters of petrol. In this case, the consumption for 100 km would be 6.7 liters (6 / 90 x 100 = 6.7). So don’t forget your calculator!

A manual gearbox is thought to be more economical than a classic automatic transmission. A lot of drivers put the car into neutral in order to save fuel and minimize consumption, but this actually raises consumption by 1–2% and slowly kills the engine. You should drive in gear in order to achieve zero consumption. Also driving in gear is very good for the engine as it rids it of all kinds of dirt. So keep calm and stay in gear!

Sometimes we struggle to work out how much fuel our car uses on the road, but the formula is very simple. Let’s imagine you’ve driven 90 km and used 6 liters of petrol. In this case, the consumption for 100 km would be 6.7 liters (6 / 90 x 100 = 6.7). So don’t forget your calculator!

A manual gearbox is thought to be more economical than a classic automatic transmission. A lot of drivers put the car into neutral in order to save fuel and minimize consumption, but this actually raises consumption by 1–2% and slowly kills the engine. You should drive in gear in order to achieve zero consumption. Also driving in gear is very good for the engine as it rids it of all kinds of dirt. So keep calm and stay in gear!
