Answers for this Question

If a moving car is put into neutral, no power flows from the engine to the wheels even if you press the pedal. We can say that the wheels and engine are, in a way, not connected. This allows the wheels to rotate freely.

Now there are advantages and disadvantages of this.

Advantages being that this can save you lot of fuel if you are on a downward slope or on a straight road.

Disadvantages being that you will have lesser control over the car. You will have to manage your braking (on a downward slope) to slow down the car and in case of any emergency you probably won't have time to simply brake and control the car.

Hence its not advisable to put a running car directly into neutral.

In order to improve the mileage, we would suggest you to drive slower.Driving fast can reduce your fuel efficiency by up to 33% if you are travelling above 60 mph. It is best to change gears appropriately and match the gear and the RPM carefully. You have to be careful when going to the tuner. Make sure the tuning is just to keep your engine running at the proper revs to provide maximum fuel efficiency. Changing the fuel filter on a regular basis will ensure that your car runs smoothly by letting only fuel into the engine instead of other residue from the tank and a clean air filter promotes better combustion which optimizes fuel economy. The tire pressure should be checked at least monthly because properly inflated tires can improve fuel efficiency by up to 3%. Turning off air conditioner in city driving reduces stress on your engine which increases fuel economy greatly. Whether you use synthetic of natural oil, using an additive can improve fuel efficiency by up to 15%. You can keep these things in mind while maintaining your car.

Moreover, you may also go through the article "Tips to Ensure Good Fuel Economy". Hope this will be helpful for you. Hence its not advisable to put a running car directly into neutral.

    It depends on your budget as well! You have multiple option now a days. But Maruti Suzuki cars are the best cars for Indian Roads. You can go with Swift and Baleno if you like maruti cars and in Hyundai you have an option for i10.
