News & Features Car & U Tips for getting good mileage
Can we save fuel on keeping a car on neutral mode when road is downfall
things like proper tyre pressure, timely service and driving at the speed range of 50 - 80 kmph will also yield good mileage in cities
Maintaining the correct Tyre pressure is important ,

It is really a good message to all that we are being taught the good points of driving by your organisation. These things are barely taught by the motor driving schools. Thanks for the various tips and hope that more people read and learn to drive safely and keep others safe as well.
Very well written. The importance of using the right gear in order to get the best torque cannot be ignored. My dad who was used to our M800's 4 gears has never been able to use the 5th gear of our Tata Manza (petrol) and his driving style is unconventional and inappropriate as a result of which, the Manza gives an efficiency of 10 while it can give more than that.
I recently had second service for the new Honda Jazz X which I bought 3 months back, I observe variance performance and fuel efficiency. Is there a possibility that "Honda Authorized Dealership Ring Road Honda Moti Nagar New Delhi" can change important engine parts OR the entire engine of my new car?? They kept the car for 6 hours...Any thoughts on this please??Is there a way i can check if they have done some changes to the engine??
any idea about the density of the petrol, I think if we pour more dense petrol then it's good. any idea on this, please share.ThanksDhanesh Mane
It is what I was looking for. I asked too many experts on varous sites but none have given the right answer. Thanks. I shall follow suit. But the automatic transmissions are too costly.

I individually regarded it was awesome. Employees were very valuable and useful, their assistance was awesome. The option of meals available was awesome, I'm a unsettled eater so this was ideal for me. A lot of aspects to keep the children packed so the parents can rest as well. I got it for 650 per mature which I think was awesome value and cash well invested.african mango side effects
What the hell is wrong with you?
Some tips for great Mileage: 1) Being smooth is the key. smooth in accelerating, smooth in braking.2)Use only as much throttle as you need, to get to the next signal. take your feet off throttle, let the car decelerate slowly, and when you reach next signal, gently apply brakes.3) Roll up the windows if you go above 70-80 kms. reduces wind drag.4) Don't drag the car through gears to reach your cruising speed. get there quickly and smoothly, and stay there.5) Keep the tires inflated to the right pressure or a little over. less air lower mileage- too much air- less grip on dusty roads and bumpy ride.6) Remove all that unwanted items from your boot- old jack handles, and any extra weight. you dont need your vacuum cleaner and shampoo and bucket all the time.(just some examples!)7)Don't load you electrical s with a lot aftermarket fittings- the alternator puts a load on your engine too.8)Using the clutch does not use fuel by itself- its letting the engine rev too much(it happens easily when you dump the clutch!) that burns fuel. keep your feet of the clutch when not needed. 9) Dont race from light to light. the guy who reaches the next signal first, will be still waiting there for you by the time you reach there smartly and smoothly!- trust me :)
Rightly said and done ... i'm a follower .. tell me about it..
very well crafted sir ji...but hardly people follow this....being a biker i follow these things to get better per litre
Coasting in neutral would be safe up to a speed of 12-15 km/h tops, I imagine. Regarding the health of the engine, there would be no detrimental effect whatsoever. Coasting would help reduce engine and transmission wear at very low speeds. For example, if you were closing a 100-metre gap in traffic, there is no need to have you foot on the gas for 80 metres of the distance. One gentle tap on the throttle to gain just enough momentum is more than sufficient; you would be able to stop with minimal brake input as well. It's kinder to engineering and you are only slower by around a second tops to cover same the distance. Makes sense in stop-go.

Qutie useful for a layman and also useful for skilled drivers when every milli liter of fuel saving counts.
Very good info but too technical for a skilled driver/Rider
Can coasting in neutral help in saving fuel? Is coasting in neutral safe with respect to driving and for the health of the engine?
