## What is fuel consumption?

Motor vehicles need a certain amount of energy to move. This energy is generally obtained from flammable materials stored in the vehicle. It is very important for vehicle owners to know how much fuel is consumed and the cost of traveling certain distances.

## What factors affect fuel consumption?

Factors such as tire pressure, the condition of the engine oil, the type of flammable substance used (gasoline, diesel, etc.), the use of additional equipment such as air conditioning, the weight of the vehicle and the additional loads carried affect the amount of energy spent to move. By paying attention to these factors and keeping the engine speed close to ideal while driving, fuel consumption can be reduced.

## How does the amount of cargo carried affect fuel consumption?

In addition to the vehicle's own weight, extra loads also increase energy consumption. It is calculated that every 45 kg of extra weight carried on the vehicles reduces productivity by 1-2 percent.

## At what speed should the car be used for low fuel consumption?

Turning the rev indicator to red is not good for the economy as it increases consumption. Therefore, the gear timing should be adjusted well while taking off or accelerating.

There is a direct relationship between the fuel consumption of vehicles and the cycle intervals in which the vehicle is used. Tools should be used at the maximum torque level possible. Driving the vehicle at lower revs or at very high revs damages both the engine and fuel economy of the vehicle. Although it may vary from vehicle to vehicle, the maximum torque is usually 2000 - 2500 rpm in passenger vehicles. Except for gear shifts, it is recommended to use the vehicle at these speeds.

Going slow in a higher gear consumes less fuel, while going faster in a lower gear increases consumption. In short, it is best to shift up whenever possible. However, aggressive driving also increases fuel consumption by one third compared to soft driving. It is best to try to keep the ride as even as possible by not braking too hard and not accelerating suddenly.

## Does going at high speed reduce fuel consumption?

The faster the vehicle goes, the more wind resistance it encounters. Therefore, the vehicle is forced to use more fuel to maintain speed. It is calculated that a difference of 12 km per hour can increase fuel consumption by approximately 23 percent. Using cruise control on main roads helps to reduce fuel consumption as it will increase efficiency.

## How much will my car burn?

You can easily calculate how many liters of fuel your vehicle consumes to travel 100 km or how many USD it consumes per km with the help of our calculation tool. Today, economy class passenger cars with diesel engines burn around 3-4 liters of diesel per 100 km on average. Vehicles with gasoline-powered engines burn approximately 5 - 6 liters of gasoline per 100 km.
