Drive intelligently, save fuel.

Efficiency optimisations through driving style.

With your personal driving style you can significantly reduce the fuel consumption of your vehicle – and therefore the burden on the environment.

A few tips for fuel-efficient driving:

  • Exercise foresight when driving and avoid powerful acceleration and braking wherever possible: incidentally, this can also prevent traffic jams from developing.
  • Avoid cold starts and short-distance trips, as the engine requires the most fuel at the start of a journey.
  • Shift up early and down late or in automatic transmissions select the "ECO" drive programme.
  • Always keep an eye on the tyre pressure, as tyre pressure that is too low increases fuel consumption.
  • Make your air conditioning's job easier by starting your journey with open windows on hot days, for example, and therefore somewhat reducing the vehicle interior temperature.
  • Get rid of any unnecessary ballast, for every kilogram that's transported in your load compartment costs additional fuel.
