Driving style

Starting

Do not warm the engine with the car at a standstill or at idle or high speed: under these conditions the engine warms up much more slowly, increasing electrical consumption and emissions.

It is therefore advisable to move off immediately, slowly, avoiding high speeds. This way the engine will warm faster.

Unnecessary actions

Avoid accelerating when waiting at traffic lights or before switching off the engine. This and also double declutching is absolutely pointless on modern cars and also increase consumption and pollution.

Gear selection

As soon as the conditions of the traffic and road allow, use a higher gear. Using a low gear to obtain brilliant performance increases consumption. In the same way improper use of a high gear increases consumption, emissions an engine wear.

Top speed

Fuel consumption considerably increases with speed. Avoid superfluous braking and accelerating, which cost in terms of both fuel and emissions.

Acceleration

Accelerating violently increasing the revs will greatly affect consumption and emissions: acceleration should be gradual and should not exceed the maximum torque.
