Driving style

Starting

Do not warm the engine when the vehicle is stationary or at high or low revs: in this way the engine will warm up gradually increasing consumption and emissions. You should drive off slowly straight away avoiding high revs so that the engine will warm up more quickly.

Unnecessary actions

Avoid revving the engine when stopped at traffic lights or before switching off the engine and avoid doubling the clutch as these actions have no purpose of modern vehicles and serve only to increase consumption and pollution.

Gear selection

As soon as the traffic and road conditions allow it, shift to a higher gear.

Using a lower gear to liven up acceleration greatly increases consumption.

In the same way, improper use of the higher gears will increase consumption, emissions and wear and tear on the engine.

Top speed

Fuel consumption increases considerably as speed increases. For example, when accelerating from 90 to 120 km/h, fuel consumption increases up to approximately +30%. Your speed should be kept as even as possible and superfluous braking and acceleration avoided as this increases both consumption and emissions. A smooth driving style should be adopted by attempting to anticipate maneuvers to avoid imminent danger and to keep a safe distance from the vehicle in front to avoid braking sharply.

Acceleration

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