Eco-Driving: Downshift Somewhat than Brake.


It is true that gasoline always costs more.

Fortunately, there is a simple trick to use less gas.

The thing that works is to adopt eco-driving.

You know it now, eco-driving is simply a matter of habit. Look :

How to do

1. Anticipate obstacles as much as possible.

2. Consider downshifting to slow down rather than using the brakes.


There you go, by downshifting instead of braking, you save gasoline 🙂

Simple, practical and efficient, isn’t it?

When traveling by car, it is important to be aware of other motorists.

This is for your own safety, but also for that of people you meet on the road.

So, with a little practice and by sufficiently anticipating the obstacles in advance, the Engine brake will become a reflex for you to decelerate efficiently while saving gasoline.

Think about it 🙂

Savings made

By using the engine brake instead of pressing the brake pedal, you slow down efficiently while consuming less fuel!

And for those who put themselves in neutral, know that with the engine brake, the fuel supply is interrupted by the injection system, while when disengaged, the engine continues to consume fuel while idling.

All the eco-driving tips are effective solutions to reduce fuel costs and save up to 20%! Nice, no?
