Drive smoothly: avoid aggressive pedal inputs for both throttle and brake.
Accelerate slowly: particularly on gravel and slippery surfaces.
Avoid unnecessary steering input: each sideward movement causes drag.
Conserve momentum: avoid severe decelerations and use rolling resistance rather than brake input if traffic conditions allow.
Anticipate traffic flow: keep a safe distance to keep travelling with the traffic flow.
Drive in high gear: engine is most efficient around 1500 - 2500 rpm.
Shift early: Change up as soon as practical and before revs reach 2500 rpm.
Skip shift: Skip gears if practical (1st to 3rd, 3rd to 5th etc).
2nd Gear start: Pull away in second gear if practical.
Cruise Control: Use cruise on steady state roads. Avoid cruise on uphill sections with AT. System will induce downshift strategy.
Use AC sparingly: Keep air con on minimum comfortable condition.
