1. The maintenance instruction

1.1. Protection of environment and economy of energy

Modern style of driving provides decrease in noise level and quantity of exhaust gases. It in a high measure pays off and promotes increase of a standard of living. Therefore it is necessary to go, caring of energy: "there is less than gasoline and more kilometres".

Excessively sharp acceleration considerably raises the fuel expense. Squeal of tyres and a motor roar at valiant start increase noise level approximately four times.

At the first possibility carry out switching on higher transfer. The car going with speed of 50 km/h on the second transfer, makes as much the noise, how many three cars, going with the same speed on the fourth transfer.

Uniform speed

Try to drive the car as it is possible is more often on the highest transfer.

At movement in a city frequently already over 50 km/h it is possible to move on 4th transfer. At movement on 3 transfer you consume at speed from 50 to 80 km/h on 30 % of more fuel, than on 4th transfer, and influence on Wednesday in high noise level.

Movement in a city

Frequent трогания from a place and a stop, for example, on traffic lights, considerably raise average consumption of fuel and noise level. Avoid unnecessary stops provident driving. Whenever possible choose streets with a good transport stream. At the expense of preservation of a sufficient distance and without перескакивания in empty intervals you will avoid unnecessary accelerations and braking which are at the bottom of increase of noise and quantity of exhausts, and also increase fuel consumption. The special attention is demanded by driving in residential areas and, first of all, at night.


Idling the engine also consumes fuel and makes noise. Already at parking lasting more than 1 minute it is recommended to switch off the engine. Three minutes of work idling correspond approximately to movement kilometre!

High speed

The above speed of movement, the is more consumed fuel. At movement on full gas too much fuel is burnt and excessive noise is formed. Even insignificant dump of a pedal of gas essentially saves gasoline without appreciable loss in speed. With growth of speed noise of a wind and tyres strongly increases. The sound made by tyres on the higher transfer, already at speed over 70 km/h defines car noise level. The car at speed of 150 km/h makes as much the noise, how many four cars at speed of 100 km/h or ten at speed of 70 km/h.

Pressure of air in tyres

Low pressure turns around double loss of money: above the expense of fuel and is more deterioration of tyres.

Car loading

The unnecessary overload increases the fuel expense, especially at accelerations (movement in a city). At loading in 100 kg in the conditions of a city fuel consumption can increase on 0,5 l/100 of km.

The top luggage carrier, the holder for skis

The top luggage carrier and the holder for skis can increase fuel consumption approximately by 1 l/100 of km owing to the raised resistance of air. It is recommended to remove a luggage carrier if it is not used.
