Fill it, shut it:

It is always advisable to have full tank. Try and fill up above 10-15 litres every time you visit the petrol pump. It’s mileage-effective as well as a saviour in emergencies.

Right pressure:

The air-pressure in the tyres has a lot of influence on the mileage. Get it checked regularly.

Stay cool:

One of the biggest factors in bringing down mileage is the AC. Use it judiciously and switch if off ocassionally while driving. Also check the coolant.

Oil it:

Check brake oil regularly. Keep carburettor clean.

Keep in mind:

Use high octane petrol once in a while. Move to the fifth gear at 40kms/hour speed. But don’t drag it if the speed falls. Come down to a lower gear.
