Car driving tips for a Tata Nano car
Now that you have made up your mind to buy this Tata Nano car, here are a few car driving tips that can be helpful in driving this vehicle more efficiently:
First of all, you should give up your aggressive driving habits. Tata Nano car has a low torque of 48rpm, and if you drive aggressively, it may cost you around 2 liters more fuel per 100 kms.
Try to drive on the route that is less crowded than others and has fewest stop lights, so that you do not get interrupted time and again.
Try to leave the habit of accelerating to 20% over the speed limits on highways, as this may affect your car’s fuel consumption significantly.
Do not over-correct your driving speed by braking, decelerating, over-accelerating or applying pedal time and again. This may lead to wastage of fuel.
Use the higher gears as soon as possible. Some may say that you should allow your engine to over-rotate, but in this way, you will spend more fuel than needed, and this will in turn decrease life of the engine.
Whenever you notice that your car’s engine is stalling, shift to the lower gear. If you are driving in a higher gear and your engine is not pulling any more, do not push the accelerator stronger, as this may lead to squirting of more fuel. The best thing you can do in such situation is to drive on a lower gear.
Do not use the engine brake to stop your vehicle.
Many people forget that every feature they use inside the car consumes fuel. Try to use facilities like defrost, fans, seat warmers and air conditioners as less as possible.
With all the car driving tips mentioned above, you can reap more benefits out of the already cost-effective Tata Nano car.
