How to save fuel when you drive a motorbike

  1. Have motorbike maintenance regularly

Parts such as belts, air filters, electronic fuel injection systems, carburettors, spark plugs, etc. are the part that directly determines the fuel consumption. Therefore, to save fuel, you should regularly take the motorbike for maintenance and periodic inspection.

Lubricants for motorbikes, you should also change periodically to operate the machine more effectively to help the motorbike save fuel. Because if the oil is too viscous, the energy and time required to pump the oil to the place where the lubrication is higher will result in more fuel consumption.

In addition to regular maintenance, good driving habits also contribute to helping the motorbike operate stably, which saving fuel.

  1. Go throttle without accelerating and braking quickly

If you want to save fuel, you should keep the scooter and control the motorbike stable. Avoid throttling to accelerate or going too slow… because when accelerating, the engine must overcome the inertia of the car to accelerate, the engine needs to generate a larger capacity so it needs more gasoline. When suddenly decelerating, the kinetic energy of the motorbike (created by gasoline) converts into heat energy on the brakes and dissipates into the air, also consuming gasoline.

keep the scooter and control the motorbike stable

You should maintain a steady speed, avoid sudden braking and acceleration. On urban roads, you need to keep a distance of 2m from the front motorbike, watch the red light from afar to slowly reduce the throttle.

  1. Do not accelerate suddenly after the red stop

Many people after stopping a red light often turn on the gas suddenly to let the motorbike go away. However, this is an action that causes the motorbike to consume several times more fuel than usual.

If you want to save fuel, after the red light, you should give the motorbike to accelerate slowly plus the rhythmic rhythm.

  1. Turn off the machine when you stop at the red light

Everyone thinks that turning off the engine when stopping at the red light and starting the green light is more expensive than letting the motorbike start. However, the reality is not so. Because with motorbikes equipped with an electronic fuel injection system, every time you run out of very little gasoline (in case the engine has been heated).

Meanwhile, every minute the motorbike explodes without loading will consume the amount of gasoline that you should be travelling nearly 1 kilometre.

However, it is not necessary to have a red light for a short time. You turn off the engine when you have to stop the motorbike for 20 seconds or more.

Turn off the machine

When stopping at a red light, the vehicle still consumes a certain amount of fuel when moving without turning off the engine. But if the red light is less than 30 seconds, you should not turn off the engine because restarting the motorbike will also consume more fuel.

  1. Regularly check the tire pressure

In the case of insufficient pressure, it will increase friction, causing the engine to work more, the motorbike moves more inertia so it will consume more fuel. Therefore, to avoid fuel consumption, the motorbike must inflate the wheel according to the pressure specified by the vehicle manufacturer.

Typically, for vehicles with a capacity of 100-110cc, the correct tire pressure for the rear wheel is: 3 Kg / cm2, the front wheel is 2.3 Kg / cm2.

Regularly check the tire pressure

The amount of steam in the tire is maintained at a moderate level, not too soft, which will help the vehicle not consume too much traction when operating, saving significant fuel.

  1. Change frequently to numbers

Many people (especially women) often have the habit of leaving the gear unchanged even when going fast or slow, uphill or downhill … This makes your motorbikes not only fuel but also quickly broken. Therefore, if you want to save and have a longer life, you should change the number to suit the speed and type of road.

When the vehicle meets a slope or enters a bad road, return to the low gear of 1 or two steps. When stopping at an intersection, reduce the speed and shift to a lower gear. When the car starts to roll, set the gear at 1.

  1. Reduce the weight on the motorbike

In addition to engine factors, vehicle weight is a direct determinant of fuel consumption. The simplest way to reduce unnecessary fuel consumption is to remove all leftovers from the vehicle and leave only what is truly needed.

  1. Minimize the use of air conditioning

Using reasonable and timely air conditioning will reduce the load on the engine. Reducing the use of air conditioners when the temperature is over 26.60C can save 10-15% of fuel. Use vents when possible. Park your car in the shade to keep your car cool.

  1. Choose standard gasoline

Pay attention to the type of fuel used for your vehicle because this not only saves you fuel but also protects the engine.

  1. A clear travel itinerary

Plan your trips in detail as this will make it easier to move, avoid traffic stops, congestion and save fuel.

  1. Fill the fuel as soon as the alarm clock is low

You should not leave the vehicle empty before pouring. This is not good for pumps and fuel filtration systems, not to mention the rather difficult to replace. The best solution is to refuel when the needle is less than half the tank and have not reached the “red” level.

  1. Avoid potholes while walking on the road

Potholes, potholes in the road will cause the motorbike engine to be damaged. The speed changes abruptly, the throttle is reduced quickly, resulting in more fuel consumption. Therefore, when travelling, you should pay attention to avoid potholes to help protect the life of the motorbike while saving fuel.
