Tips for efficient driving
Less consumption for a healthier atmosphere
Everybody wins when we drive in a sustainable manner
Have you ever considered the repercussions of an inappropriate style of driving? Driving in a more efficient way is simple and has many benefits. For safety, saving money and for the environment. Reduce speed gently, drive at a moderate speed, change to higher gears ... When we drive diligently we save money and pollute less. LeasePlan provides you with all the tips you need.
Choose the best route
Planning your route well will optimise your journeys. Choose the least congested and most direct route with the help of any one of the numerous apps available in the market.
Be careful with the load
Did you know that for every 100 kg of excess load the consumption of a vehicle increases by 5%? Avoid excess weight.
Aerodynamics are important
Exterior accessories, such as the roof rack, increase the vehicle’s resistance to air and, therefore, consumption. Only use them when you really need them.
Maintain an appropriate temperature
Be careful with the air conditioning! A temperature of 24°C inside the car is sufficient and we can save up to 30% of fuel.
Close the windows
It is better to close the windows. Having the windows completely open could mean we spend up to 10% more on fuel.
Use the specified fuel
Your vehicle is designed for a specific octane fuel. Always use the fuel recommended by the manufacturer.
You should regularly check consumption. If the amounts vary, this could be due to a vehicle malfunction.
Reduce urban travel
Do you have a short journey in the town or city? If you can, save yourself the trip. In this situation the vehicle consumes almost twice as much as on main roads.
Check the tyres
Be very careful with tyre pressure and tyre alignment. You will consume less and avoid premature wear and tear! Did you know that just 0.3 bars below the correct pressure could cause you to spend 3% more on fuel?
A badly tuned engine can increase consumption by 9%, while the choice of oil can increase fuel consumption by up to 3%. Make sure maintenance is carried out at the right time with the guarantee of our preferential service and repair garages.
