The single most influencing factor for fuel efficiency is the driver behind the wheel. Here are few tips to optimize the fuel efficiency of your hybrid car.
Do not accelerate sudden. The rise and the fall – both should be smooth. A sudden acceleration will require the gasoline engine to work harder thereby increasing your fuel consumption.
Try to minimize sudden stops. Keep an eye on the road and stop lights and apply brakes earlier than applying them at the last moment.
Don’t drive at unnecessary high speeds. Irrespective of the type of vehicle, the faster you drive the harder the engines have to work to overcome wind friction thereby increasing marginal the fuel consumption dramatically.
Ensure that the tire pressure is as per the manufacturer’s specifications. The smoother is the rolling of the vehicle, the better would be the fuel consumption.
The hybrids are designed to roll on the electric motor. Coast as much as possible. The gasoline would be saved.
