Easy! Here's How To Save Gas. "Gasoline crisis" (Part 1)


"Gasoline crisis",Gasoline should be saved so that fuel availability does not decrease. This way you can save gas. During the current pandemic, saving is one way to survive. Many have lost income and found it difficult to find work, therefore it is necessary to encourage saving activities, one of which is saving gas. In addition, the availability of gasoline in nature begins to decrease, therefore it is necessary to start saving in its use. Gasoline or fuel is a very important component in motor vehicles. 

Motor vehicles need gasoline to run their engines. But when you run out of fuel, of course, different measures must be taken so that the vehicle can save gas. Nowadays, many car and motorcycle manufacturers are creating eco-friendly vehicles to save fuel. These types of vehicles use fuel that is more efficient than conventional vehicles. Beyond that, you still need to know how to use gasoline wisely to maintain its availability. 

There are many ways to save your vehicle's fuel consumption. The following explains how to save gas, based on the way you drive, the way and place of refueling, and the condition and maintenance of the car.

How to save fuel based on driving

The driving style of the vehicle greatly affects the consumption of the gasoline used. Here are the right tips to save fuel during "Gasoline crisis".

  • Pay attention to the speed limit of the vehicle

The first way to save motorcycle fuel according to driving style is to pay attention to the speed limit of the vehicle. To increase the efficiency of the vehicle, it is necessary to be able to maintain the speed of the vehicle within the given speed limit. In general, the fuel efficiency of a vehicle decreases sharply as the vehicle speed increases. So if you want less fuel, try driving at a steady and steady speed. 

  • Set the vehicle engine speed
Setting your vehicle's engine RPM to the ideal RPM can be a way to save fuel. Too high or too low an engine speed can even increase fuel consumption. If you want to save fuel, try to set the engine speed to ideal conditions, which is around 3000 rpm.

  • Increase the speed gradually 

In order not to quickly run out of gas, the speed must be increased gradually. If you press the accelerator quickly after deceleration, fuel consumption will increase. So if you want economical gas consumption, don't suddenly increase the speed.

  • Make sure you keep a safe distance from the vehicle 

Keeping a safe distance between your vehicle and other vehicles can also be a way to save fuel that you can try. Vehicles that are too attached to other vehicles may brake suddenly and hit the gas again to restore the vehicle's original speed. Excessive braking and pressing the gas pedal will further increase fuel consumption. You run out of fuel quickly.

  • Use the right gear when driving 

Using the right vehicle while driving affects fuel consumption in addition to safety. Driving the vehicle continuously in low gear can actually cause the car to run out of gas. In addition to using a high gear, you can use even more gas when driving uphill. So the way to save motorcycle gas is to use the right gear while riding.

  • Use the air conditioner at reasonable temperatures 

Car users should use an air conditioner with an acceptable temperature. Improper use of the car air conditioner causes the car to burn faster. It also blocks the speed of the car when you open the window and let the wind through. In this case, the gas  pedal must be pressed deeper to increase fuel consumption.

  • Avoid stopping when the machine is running for a long time 

Who wants to stop and let the car engine run while driving? Ets, be careful because it ends faster that way. A continuously running engine needs gasoline as fuel. This makes the vehicle more fuel efficient. So when you want to stop, turn off the vehicle engine to save gas in a manual transmission car.

  • Park the car in a shaded area 

To prevent fuel from evaporating and running out faster, choose a shaded parking spot. Gasoline contains substances that evaporate due to heat. This is because vehicles parked in hot places consume gasoline faster. To avoid this, it would be better if you choose to park your vehicle indoors. Besides safety, it can also be a way to save gas.

  • Avoid traffic and bad weather 

Traffic congestion and bad weather significantly affect a vehicle's fuel efficiency. In traffic, the speed of the vehicle becomes unstable because you brake more often and press the gas pedal in a short time. It wastes fuel and runs out of gas faster. One of the reasons why gasoline runs out faster turns out to be just bad weather that hinders the speed of the vehicle. So a way to save fuel is to avoid driving in bad weather conditions and avoid roads that may be congested.

  • Before turning off the machine, turn off all electronic equipment and the air conditioner 

 Another way to save gas is to turn off all electronics and air conditioning before turning off the engine. If all equipment is turned off before stopping the engine, less fuel is used when starting the engine due to the reduced load. Therefore, before turning off the machine, make sure that all electronic devices are turned off.

  • Reduce the use of the car for short trips 

Another way to save fuel is to avoid using the car for short trips. Gasoline consumption is wasteful when the car is driven a short distance because the catalytic converter, which reduces air pollution, does not work properly until the car's engine is really hot. Usually the distance is less than 5 km, the engine has not reached the maximum operating temperature, so the fuel consumption is more wasteful.

How to Save Gas Based on Filling Method and Location during "Gasoline crisis"

Saving gas is a great way to reduce costs and environmental impact. Here are some ways to save fuel depending on how and where you fill up:

  •  Pay attention to the gas station code 

Each official Pertamina gas station has a special discount code that you can see on the gas station. 31.xxxx or 34.xxxx are used in and around Jakarta. The first number is the area code and the following numbers indicate ownership. 

The number 3 represents gas stations located in and around DKI Jakarta, West Java and Banten. As for the second number, if 1 means Pertamina's own property, while number 4 means private property or distributor. One way to save gas and improve gas quality is to choose as many gas stations as possible that contain pertamine. Each area has a different code. 

To make it easier to choose a repair shop, pay attention to the second code number. Choose gas stations with another numerical code in the form of the number 1, because this means filling up at Pertamina itself. In addition to the guaranteed quality, the amount of available gasoline is also more certain. 

  • Ask the gas station attendant to add fuel without pressing the fuel hose lever
 Based on the experience of several gas stations, the amount of gasoline can also be affected by pressing the lever of the fuel pipe. Pressing the hose reel while refueling can reduce the amount of fuel delivered. So, if you want to get more gas, ask the gas station attendant to add fuel without pressing the fuel lever.

  • Try to refillit in the morning 

When refueling, it turns out that this can also be an opportunity to save fuel for the test car. All gas stations have underground tanks. Some believe that the colder the earth, the denser or thicker the fuel. Meanwhile, when the temperature rises or heats up, the fuel expands. Therefore, if you want to get denser and thicker gasoline, try to fill it in the morning.

  • We recommend adding fuel when the tank is still half full

Another way to save gas is to fill it up when the tank is half full. The more gasoline in the tank, the less air fills the empty tank. In this way, the fuel does not evaporate quickly, making its use more efficient.

  •  Avoid refueling with a truck at car refueling tanks

 If you want to get high quality and clean gasoline, you should avoid refueling when there is a storage tank filling truck. When fuel is pumped from the truck into the storage tank at the gas station, it is guaranteed that the contents inside mix so that the dirt at the bottom of the tank enters the tank of your car. The quality of gasoline has not deteriorated, but the dosage of gasoline has also decreased. 6. Use a fuel saver

Another easy way to save gas is to use a fuel saver. Nowadays, there are many fuel efficient devices. This method is usually quite effective in saving fuel, but still make sure you choose an accurate and high-quality fuel saver. In addition to applying the above methods, you can also consider the right gas station to save gas: 

  • Compare Gas Prices
Compare gas prices at gas stations near you. Choose cheaper driving to reduce costs.

  • Look for loyalty programs or discounts
Some gas stations offer loyalty programs or discounts for regular customers. Use this program to get cheaper gas prices.

  • Choose a busy station
Busy gas stations usually have fresher fuel in stock. Fresh gasoline can improve performance.

  • Don't fill up when the tank is full
If you only need a small amount of gas, avoid filling up the tank. Carrying unnecessary gasoline will only increase fuel consumption.

Hopefully these tips will help you save on gas and costs. Remember that good driving habits and regular vehicle maintenance are also important factors in fuel efficiency.

How to save gas depending on the condition and maintenance of the car during "Gasoline crisis"

Did you know that vehicle maintenance can really affect a vehicle's fuel economy? Here are some ways to save fuel while paying attention to the condition and maintenance of your car that you can try.

  • Use synthetic oil to save gas

If you want your car to be more fuel efficient, use synthetic oil. Using synthetic oil is estimated to save fuel by around 5%. This method not only saves fuel, but also makes you change the oil less often, because synthetic oil is much higher quality and lasts longer.

  • Lightens the car

An excessively heavy vehicle load also increases fuel consumption. You can lighten the load of the car to save fuel. The trick is to get rid of things you don't need. You must also ensure that the vehicle is used to the capacity specified by the manufacturer. In this way, the performance of the vehicle is maximized and the fuel consumption is also optimal. To optimize this way of saving fuel, it is not recommended to transport goods on the roof of the car, as this increases wind resistance. This can slow the car down, causing increased fuel consumption.

  • Change the air filter regularly 

Being lazy about changing your vehicle's air filter can increase your vehicle's fuel economy. In this case, gasoline is saved by regularly changing the air filter. The reason is that when the air filter is dirty, it reduces the power and efficiency of the engine, so more fuel is needed. To prevent excessive contamination of the air filter, you must perform routine vehicle maintenance. 

In addition to being able to ensure that the vehicle is always running flawlessly, it is also able to predict if there is a problem with the vehicle. Because if not controlled, it makes fuel consumption more wasteful and can also endanger the life of the driver.

  • Inflate the tires to the specified air pressure 

Tires inflated to the specified air pressure make driving speed more optimal. This makes the speed of the car smoother, which also makes fuel consumption more economical. However, if the tire pressure is too low or too high, it slows down the vehicle and thus increases fuel consumption.

  • Stick to a schedule 

Saving according to a schedule can also be an effective way to save fuel. Timely replacement of spark plugs and coils will make the engine run smoother and produce more power. As a result, fuel consumption is optimal, so you can save more gasoline. To ensure that your vehicle always looks high quality, carry out maintenance and adjustments according to the schedule established by the official workshop. Keeping your vehicle pre-charged at all times not only ensures safety while driving, but can also save fuel consumption.
