1.1. Protection of environment and economy of energy


Modern style of driving provides decrease in noise level and amount of exhaust gases. It in a high measure pays off and promotes increase of a standard of living. Therefore it is necessary to go, caring of energy: "it is less than gasoline and more kilometers".

Excessively sharp acceleration considerably increases fuel consumption. Squeal of tires and a motor roar at valiant start increase noise level approximately four times.

At the first possibility carry out switching on higher transfer. The car going with a speed of 50 km/h on the second transfer, makes as much the noise, how many three cars, going with the same speed on the fourth transfer.

Uniform speed

Try to drive the car as it is possible more often on the highest transfer.

At movement in the city often already over 50 km/h it is possible to move on the 4th transfer. At movement on the 3rd transfer you consume at speed from 50 to 80 km/h for 30 % more fuel, than on the 4th transfer, and influence Wednesday in high noise level.

Movement in the city

Frequent troganiye from a place and a stop, for example, on traffic lights, considerably increase average consumption of fuel and noise level. Avoid unnecessary stops provident driving. Whenever possible choose streets with a good transport stream. At the expense of preservation of a sufficient distance and without a pereskakivaniye in empty intervals you избегнете unnecessary accelerations and braking which are at the bottom of increase of noise and quantity of exhausts, and also increase fuel consumption. The special attention is demanded by driving in residential areas and, first of all, at night.


Idling the engine also consumes fuel and makes noise. Already when parking lasting more than 1 minute it is recommended to switch off the engine. Three minutes of work idling correspond to movement about a kilometer!

High speed

The speed of movement is higher, the is more consumed fuels. At movement on full gas too much fuel is burned and excessive noise is formed. Even insignificant dumping of a pedal of gas essentially saves gasoline without appreciable loss in speed. With growth of speed noise of a wind and tires strongly increases. The sound made by tires on the highest transfer, at speed over 70 km/h defines car noise level. The car at speed of 150 km/h makes as much the noise, how many four cars at speed of 100 km/h or ten at speed of 70 km/h.

Pressure of air in tires

Low pressure turns around double loss of money: higher fuel consumption and is more wear of tires.

Car loading

The unnecessary overload increases fuel consumption, especially at accelerations (movement in the city). When loading in 100 kg in the conditions of the city consumption of fuel can increase on 0,5 l/100 of km.

The top luggage carrier, the holder for skis

The top luggage carrier and the holder for skis can increase fuel consumption approximately by 1 l/100 of km owing to the increased resistance of air. It is recommended to remove a luggage carrier if it is not used.
