Smoothness is the mother of efficiency. Only if your car is in perfect shape can it give its best. Make sure that your tyres are properly inflated, your oil and filters are changed regularly and your car is properly maintained by professionals at an authorised ŠKODA Service Partner.
A coasting car uses no fuel and, by slowing down early enough, you may even find yourself in a position to accelerate again before you come to a full stop. Traffic jams not only cost time and money, but also increase fuel consumption. Use ŠKODA navigation systems with traffic information to avoid them.
Brakes turn energy into heat. The energy recovery system recoups at least part of this energy, and saves the fuel that would otherwise be used to keep the engine idling. An idling engine wastes fuel, so switch it off every time you remain stationary for prolonged periods.
High-engine speeds mean greater resistance and friction loss. Modern turbocharged engines achieve maximum torque at low rpm, so there’s no need to rev the engine. Alternatively, let the gear recommendation system do the talking.
Every kilogram counts, so take unnecessary items out of the car. Close your windows and take off bike racks or roof boxes when not in use. Hiding in the slipstream behind cars or lorries can vastly reduce aerodynamic drag and significantly reduce fuel consumption.
