Learn not only driving skills but also their need 

  • Why Eco-safe driving leads to respect for society as a whole 
  • Why Eco-Safe driving is good for the environment 
  • Danger prediction and response unique to trucks and buses 
  • Fuel efficient driving methods 
  • Checkpoints before driving

Gear according to the situation

  • Shift gear between 1500 and 1800 RPM
  • Step on the accelerator at about 80%
  • Maximum acceleration is 1500-1800RPM
  • Fuel efficiency is the best in the middle of a green zone of the engine tachometer
  • It is good to start the shift before the needle enters the green zone

Let’s be aware of the engine speed

  • When driving at a constant speed, the engine speed is 1000 to 2000 RPM

This speed is ideal! 

  • This is the most economical driving method 
  • Use the accelerator to the minimum necessary 
  • Accelerate / decelerate within 10 km as much as possible
  • Although it is important to be aware of the number of revolutions, let’s drive with safety first and foremost

The accelerator is gentle

  • Step on gently 
  • The upper limit of speed is 80 to 90 km
  • High speed requires power
  • If you do so, fuel efficiency will worsen
  • Air resistance also increases
  • Therefore, fuel efficiency will improve if you drive 80 to 90 kilometers
  • Reducing the speed by 10 km will improve fuel efficiency by 10%

Let’s use the brake properly 

  • Step on gently
  • Use the engine brake when decelerating 
  • Let’s step on the brake at an appropriate timing with a margin 
  • Use the brake pedal the minimum according to the traffic conditions
  • This leads to improved fuel efficiency 

Let’s stop idling 

  • If you idle for 3 hours a day, if you use it every 25 days, it will be 720L of fuel consumption per year
  • In case of a large truck, it will be approximately 1,170L per year
  • Stop idling during breaks and filling in in the truck

There are still more 

  • Check tires pressure and fuel efficiency on a regular basis 
  • The cargo is well balanced and does not carry extra items 
  • Let’s keep an appropriate distance 
  • Air conditioning only when necessary 
  • Check the route in advance
  • Avoid peak traffic as much as possible
