Do not rest your foot on the accelerator pedal, for short period stoppages, for example at a signal.
Keep a keen observation on the quantity and quality of fuel.
Keep the bottom of your vehicle free from mud, etc. This not only lessens weight but also helps prevent corrosion.
Keep your vehicle tuned-up and in top shape.

Fuel Efficiency

Avoid long and unnecessary engine idling. If you have a long wait and you are not into traffic, it is better to turn off the engine and start again later.
For better and long lasting usage, keep tire pressure upto acceptable standard Pressure (Recommendation given on the sticker pasted on front RHS pillar / door).
It is better to switch off the engine at stops of over 2 minutes and start again when required.
Drive Slow and steady. The faster you go, the more the wind resistance your vehicle will face.
Do not rest your foot on the clutch or brake pedal. This causes needless wear, overheating and poor fuel economy.
Always drive in the correct gear, Incorrect gear shifting can lead to as much as 20% increase in fuel consumption.
A 25% decrease in tire pressure can cost you 5~10% more on petrol and 25% on tire life.
It has been established by trials that you can get upto 40% extra mileage at 40 Kmph as compared to 80 kmph.
Ensure proper wheel alignment. Improper alignment not only causes faster tire wear but also puts an extra load on the engine, which in turn wastes fuel.
A/C usage increases fuel consumption. Operate the lever on re-circulate position to optimize cooling.
Various A/C settings are available in Suzuki. Choose according to your level of comfort desired. It is recommended that “Mild” mode be used in the morning & night time.
A dirty air cleaner, out of adjustment carburetor, dirty plugs, dirty oil and grease, brakes unadjusted etc. all lower engine performance and contribute to poor fuel economy.
