It is important to anticipate when driving. For example, slow speed down a little earlier to let the traffic light change instead of stopping completely, or accelerate a little before starting a hill. It's also advisable to leave a wide distance between your car and the one in front of you so you have enough time to brake evenly.
Window or air conditioning?
Use the windows or air conditioning (A/A) to cool the vehicle in summer? Who hasn't been part of this debate before? Finally, we’ve got an answer to this question: there is an ideal time and place to use each option.
Switching the A/A on is the main cause of fuel mismanagement in hot climates. Its effect depends on several factors such as the outside temperature or the humidity and intensity of the sun. In hot conditions the A/A can reduce the vehicle's fuel efficiency by more than a 25%, especially on short distances, so it is best to limit its use to highway speeds. However, driving with the windows down can also reduce fuel efficiency and increase wind resistance, making the vehicle use more energy to move forward. The windows should, therefore, be lowered only when driving at reduced speeds.
