1. Driving in Positive and Relax Condition

Driver should avoid driving in a state of anger, sleepy or sad. Try to think about fuel saving during driving as it would affect the style of driving. If possible, try to use public transport to longer distance journey.

For an automatic transmission car, allow the car to move slightly before releasing the force on the acceleration pedal slowly to prevent more consumption of fuel driving up the hill.

It can also lead the sides of the tyres to worn out faster. At the same time, having higher air pressure than recommended can caused the middle part of the tyres to worn out faster and make the driving to be less smooth.
