Road Conditions and Driving Pattern
Road conditions certainly determine how your car will adapt to the power generated by the engine. If you often go through messy road surface, lots of climbs, or lots of curves or steep slopes that require the car to be able to smoothly maneuver. In addition, how you drive will also determine how much the engine will consume fuel. If you kick the brake, the gas pedal, and speeding too often, then you can be sure the gasoline will run out faster, so you have to spend more money to fill the tank.
With the increasing condition of global warming in our natural habitat, erratic weather change will happen more often. Especially, when it’s hot, the temperature can be hotter than usual. For an instance, lately, the temperature condition in Jakarta and the surrounding areas can increase up to 37°C. If this temperature can make us really sweat when in outdoors, imagine what can happen when we are inside the car—the temperature will be hotter because the ventilation is closed, therefore forcing us to increase the blow from the air conditioning system.
In this situation, the car engine is forced to work harder than its normal standard, thus the gasoline will burn faster and evaporate. The solution is to make sure your car cabin is in a condition that is not too hot when you want to drive, so you will not to require strong air conditioning.
Check Tire Condition
