Hi, There are many tips and tricks that you can use to get the best mileage out of your car. The best way is to drive efficiently and get your car serviced on regular basis. Rest, please check the below tips.

1) Drive smoothly on the road. If you are accelerating too fast then sudden braking can reduce the mileage by 10%. Follow the speed limit to obtain best mileage of the car.

2) Change the engine oil regularly as older oil can consume dirt which will not only affect the engine but mileage too. Also don't use the premium fuels; it doesn't increase the fuel efficiency.

3) Car's tyres should be inflated regularly. If your car's tyres are under inflation then it means contact area has increased between the tyre and the road, which will result as extra friction between road and tyre rubber, hence the engine will consume more fuel.

4) Keep the air filter neat and clean, as dirty air-filters consume dirt and can reduce the mileage by 3-5%. So, check the air-filters as well as oil properly and replace if necessary.

5) Shut-off the engine if you are going to stop at a point for more than a minute as idling car also consumes fuel. But if you are going to stop for less than a minute, then shutting-off your engine is not a good idea because it needs more fuel to restart an engine.

6) Clear away the mess which have occupied in your car. This extra weight will make the car heavy. As a result, car will consume more fuel. So keep the unwanted material out from your car and save up to 2% of fuel.

7) The higher the gear, lesser fuel will be consumed. Use appropriate gear at appropriate speed. Try to drive at higher gear, as lower gears eat more fuel at the time of accelerating.

8) Use the clutch ONLY when needed. If you will continuously press the clutch pedal at the time of driving, then the engine will consume more fuel.

9) Similarly, switch-on the air conditioner only when you require, because it eats fuel too. But also one thing should be kept in mind, if you will keep the windows closed and AC on, then you can save more fuel because the open windows increase the aerodynamic drag of a car with the increment in fuel consumption.

    Tata Nexon Highlights

    Tata Motors is back in the groove with the launch of Nexon compact SUV. The Nexon is hogging all the limelight owing to its radical design and a lot of clever engineering touches. The white ceramic strip running along the windows is a clever visual touch and merges well with the other design elements like tear-drop headlamps, smiling grille, muscular bonnet etc. Step inside and the quality of the cabin is pretty impressive, especially in terms of choice of materials and their soft-touch feel.

    The Tata Nexon is powered by a set of new-age powertrains - 110PS/170Nm, 1.2-liter turbocharged petrol engine and 110PS/260Nm, 1.5-liter turbocharged diesel engine. For now, both these engines are mated to 6-speed manual transmission though AMT is soon expected to join the ranks.
