Recommendations about car operation

Economy of fuel

Try to conduct the car smoothly, avoid sharp maneuvers and braking.
It is not necessary to warm up the engine excessively long. Begin movement on slow speed, gradually dispersing the car.

During movement try, that the engine rotated on the bottom border of a range of the turns corresponding to chosen transfer. Thus the engine will work with the maximum return and at the minimum loadings.

Move whenever possible with constant speed, avoid sharp braking, try to foresee change of a road situation to avoid surprises.

Watch speed of movement. Remember that fuel consumption increases in direct ratio speeds: at increase of speed of movement from 110 to 130 km/h consumption of fuel increases for 25 %.

Try to plan a movement route in advance. Remember that on the first kilometers of a distance fuel consumption more than in 2 times exceeds norm since the engine yet did not reach optimum temperature.

Driving in a city cycle is the most adverse factor from the point of view of economy of fuel consumption. On distant trips try to go round whenever possible densely populated points and places of a congestion of vehicles.

Watch pressure of a rating of tires, check it not more rare than once a month. Remember that insufficient pressure of a rating increases resistance of a kacheniye, and, therefore, and fuel consumption. Besides, movement on the lowered tires is potentially dangerous.

Try to load competently the car, evenly distributing weight of luggage and passengers on both axes of the car. Remember that in transit luggage on the top luggage carrier increases aerodynamic resistance of the car, and consequently also fuel consumption.

Transportation of big cargoes is more preferable for carrying out on the low trailer which is least influencing fuel consumption.

Do not forget to remove the top luggage carrier when need for it is absent. Do not store in the car the unnecessary luggage which transportation conducts to unjustified increase of fuel consumption.


At movement in a fog or under a heavy rain keep a distance, remember that the brake way in such conditions increases. Include running fires. In case of need include antifog headlights/lamps.

Remember that coupling of worn-out protectors of tires with the wet road sharply decreases.

At air temperature below +10°С when possibility of formation of ice is not excluded, move with extra care. In a snow season use winter tires, conduct the car smoothly, avoid sharp braking.

Watch adequacy of the review of the road. During time change brushes of screen wipers. Carry with itself a set of spare lamps. Do not forget that quality of functioning of lighting and alarm devices of lighting plays an essential role in respect of safety of traffic. Watch a condition of lighting devices, during time make adjustment of optical axes of head headlights, regularly wipe lenses of external lighting devices.

In case of accident the car is equipped with the device of interruption of supply of fuel at blow.

At operation of a control lamp of level of brake liquid immediately stop movement, park the car and contact the next service station.

After a crossing, and also after a wash of the car execute a number of short braking for the purpose of drying of brake disks/blocks.

Remember that on the equipped ABS models it is necessary to observe all general rules of safe movement. Continue to observe a distance. Do not exceed speed, avoid sharp braking.
In transit children use the special adaptations providing their adequate protection. Do not forget to block locks of back doors. Do not leave small children in the parked car without supervision. Do not allow to stand to children in space between seats. Watch, that when using electrodriving window regulators, casually not to pinch a hand, or clothes subjects.

Before opening a door, make sure that it can be executed safely. Leaving the car, do not forget to take a key from the lock of ignition and to cock the parking brake.

Observe all corresponding requirements of traffic regulations at towage of the trailer and emergency vehicles.
