Recommendations about car operation

Economy of fuel

Try to conduct the car smoothly, avoid sharp maneuvers and braking.
It is not necessary to warm up the engine excessively long. Begin movement on slow speed, gradually dispersing the car.

During movement try, that the engine rotated on the bottom border of a range of the turns corresponding to chosen transfer. Thus the engine will work with the maximum return and at the minimum loadings.

Move whenever possible with constant speed, avoid sharp braking, try to foresee change of a road situation to avoid unexpectedness.

Watch speed of movement. Remember that the fuel expense increases in direct ratio speeds: at increase of speed of movement from 110 to 130 km/h fuel consumption increases on 25 %.

Try to plan a movement route in advance. Remember that on the first kilometres of a distance the expense of fuel more than in 2 times exceeds norm since the engine yet has not reached optimum temperature.

Driving in a city cycle is the most adverse factor from the point of view of economy of the expense of fuel. On distant trips try to go round whenever possible densely populated points and places of a congestion of vehicles.

Watch pressure of a rating of tyres, check it not less often than once a month. Remember that insufficient pressure of a rating increases resistance качения, and, hence, and fuel consumption. Besides, movement on the lowered tyres potentially dangerously.

Try to load competently the car, in regular intervals distributing weight of luggage and passengers on both axes of the car. Remember that by transportation luggage on the top luggage carrier raises aerodynamic resistance of the car, and consequently also the fuel expense.

Transportation of the big cargoes is more preferable for carrying out on the low trailer least influencing the expense of fuel.

Do not forget to remove the top luggage carrier when necessity for it is absent. Do not store in the car the unnecessary luggage which transportation conducts to unjustified increase of the expense of fuel.


At movement in a fog or under a strong rain keep a distance, remember that the brake way to such conditions increases. Include running fires. In case of need include antifog headlights/lanterns.

Remember that coupling of the worn out protectors of tyres with wet road sharply decreases.

At air temperature more low +10°С when possibility of formation of ice is not excluded, move with extra care. In a snow season use winter tyres, conduct the car smoothly, avoid sharp braking.

Watch adequacy of the review of road. During time change brushes of screen wipers. Carry with itself the complete set of spare lamps. Do not forget that quality of functioning of lighting and alarm devices of illumination plays an essential role in respect of safety of traffic. Watch a condition of lighting devices, during time make adjustment of optical axes of head headlights, regularly wipe lenses of external lighting devices.

In case of accident the car is equipped by the device of a stopping delivery of fuel at blow.

At operation of a control lamp of level of a brake liquid immediately stop movement, park the car and contact the nearest servicing deport.

After a crossing, and also after a car sink execute a number of short braking for the purpose of drying of brake disks/kolodok.

Remember that on equipped ABS models it is necessary to observe all general rules of safe movement. Continue to observe a distance. Do not exceed speed, avoid sharp braking.
By transportation children use the special adaptations providing their adequate protection. Do not forget to block locks of back doors. Do not leave small children in the parked car without supervision. Do not allow to stand to children in space between seats. Watch, that at use электроdrivers Glass lifts, casually not to pinch a hand, or clothes subjects.

Before to open a door, make sure that it can be executed safely. Leaving the car, do not forget to take a key from the lock of ignition and to cock a lay brake.

Observe all corresponding requirements of rules of traffic at towage of the trailer and emergency vehicles.
