Eco-friendly VW driving tips to save money and fuel

Smooth driving techniques

Smooth driving habits such as gradual acceleration and gentle braking can significantly enhance fuel efficiency, reducing overall fuel consumption and emissions. If you’re not paying attention, not scanning far ahead, or driving too aggressively, you not only put yourself at risk but you also waste fuel. 

Filter maintenance for cleaner air

Regularly replacing air filters not only improves engine performance and acceleration but also helps in reducing pollution emissions, contributing to a cleaner environment.

Oil deteriorates over time, filters become obstructed, and wheel alignment can be disrupted. These factors, among others, can affect your vehicle’s fuel efficiency. Therefore, adhering to scheduled maintenance is essential. Neglecting maintenance tasks can have significant consequences, as even something as seemingly minor as dirty spark plugs can greatly impact fuel consumption.

Check your tyres

Keeping your tyres inflated to the recommended pressure levels increases your fuel efficiency, ensures safer handling, and reduces the risk of tyre-related accidents on the road.

Minimise vehicle weight

Avoid carrying unnecessary items in your vehicle to minimise fuel consumption. A lighter load means less strain on the engine, translating to improved efficiency and performance.

Use Volkswagen synthetic oil

Opting for high-quality synthetic oil specifically designed for Volkswagen engines can further improve fuel economy while also extending the lifespan of your engine components.

Slow down

As you drive faster, your car needs more power to push through the air. If you’re not in a rush and it’s safe to do so, try driving a bit slower. Going at 110km/h instead of 100km/h uses more fuel because of the increased air resistance.

Driving modes

Cars feature various driving modes, including an eco mode that can enhance fuel efficiency. The Driving Profile Selection system offers drivers multiple settings tailored to their preferences. These settings include Normal, Sport, Eco, and Individual profiles.

The Normal profile provides a balanced blend of comfort and dynamic driving. Sport mode ramps up accelerator response stiffens damping and steering, and prompts the DSG transmission to engage Sport mode.

Eco mode is engineered to improve fuel efficiency by adjusting engine performance, shifting gears earlier, and optimising air conditioning control for minimal consumption.

The Individual mode allows drivers to independently customise steering, engine response, Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), and air conditioning settings.
