Get the maximum mileage from your old car

Every time you break or accelerate, your car will consume fuel (if it is a used car’s for sale by owner quite possibly it would guzzle fuel). If these actions (Accelerating and breaking) are sudden, the consumption is even more because you are putting more stress on the engine and hence it requires more fuel. Bottom line is: more the throttle, more the RPM, more the RPM, more the fuel loss.

So what can you do to get the max out of every liter of fuel? The best thing you can do it to maintain a steady pace and speed. Remember that the steady speed has to be at the highest gear. So get to the top gear as early as possible and then go at a steady pace. This is sure to bring your mileage number high. Also as far as possible avoid quick starts (or jackrabbit as it is termed) when you are waiting at the red light. If you have wait for any longer than 25 sec, turn off your engine, this could end up saving you almost 30% fuel.

Another care that you can take is to avoid racing to a traffic signal. If you do get kicks by racing your car, then you better get used to another kick that is: watch your fuel gauge showing rapid decline.

One of the most common reasons for more consumption of fuel in used cars sold by Cars by owner is the foot on the clutch. Be it while driving or waiting at the traffic signal, pressing of the clutch is for sure a fuel sapper. So avoid keeping your foot on the clutch.

So to sum up the methods: Travel at a steady pace, drive in the top gear, avoid shifting to lower gear unless it is required, avoid quick starts or sudden breaks, turn off your engine when you have to wait for more than 25 sec.

Most of the modern new cars (unfortunately not the old used cars) come with indicators that tell the drivers when to change gears and hence increasing the vehicle mileage.

The above tips and techniques will always help you be economical and will lead to save fuel even though you are opting for used cars for sale.
