Here are some tips for saving gas with your Subaru.
Respect regular mechanical inspection and maintenance so components maximize the burning efficiency of gasoline. Visit our Subaru maintenance guide
Inside the front left door of your Subaru, you will find the tire pressure recommended by the manufacturer. Respect it.
Do not let weight in your Subaru if it is not necessary.
The roof support and ski rack create turbulence and increase fuel consumption.
True synthetic oil reduces engine friction and thus reduces fuel consumption.
Drive with anticipation to reduce acceleration and braking. Traffic lights, for example, are often synchronized. Think about it.
Turn off your engine whenever you can.
Do not leave the engine idling to warm the cabin and start slowly when the engine is cold.
Reduce the speed to “catch” the green lights.
Do not accelerate to get faster on red light.
Use the cruise control when road conditions permit.
On the highway, driving 90 km / h in the right lane instead of 105 km / h can save you up to 20%.
Driving with closed windows.
Use your air conditioner as little as possible. This allows you to save 10% to 20%.
If you have a manual transmission, shifting gears keeping the engine revolution (RPM) at its lowest and the gear at its highest while making sure not to force the engine.
Learn not to get angry against slow drivers.
Turn off your engine in traffic jams.
Use your brakes as little as possible.
Buy the type of fuel recommended by the manufacturer (eg regular is octane number 87).
Winter tires used in summer increase fuel consumption and wear faster.
Follow trucks too closely.
Practice the “pulse and glide. Will driving, switching to neutral to let the car glide, you lose the ability to accelerate quickly if necessary.
Worst still, turning off the engine in motion, which is illegal in Quebec.
I tried the fuel gauge (consumption in real-time) “Scan Gauge” on my Subaru. I would have preferred if it would have given me my average consumption for the past 100 kilometers in order to improve my driving. Scan Gauge gives us the consumption in real time. The fact that there is no means for comparing the reading makes me question the relevance of such a tool. You accelerate, increasing the numbers … What next? Francois Raymond
