Nissan Micra: Increasing fuel economy

Nissan Micra Owners Manual

The following methods are recommended by NISSAN to increase fuel economy on NISSAN vehicles. All these recommendations can help you to achieve a higher level of fuel economy in your vehicle.

  • Accelerate slowly and smoothly. Maintain cruising speeds with a constant accelerator position.
  • Drive at moderate speeds on the highway.

    Driving at high speed lowers fuel economy.

  • Avoid unnecessary stopping and braking.

    Maintain a safe distance behind other vehicles

  • Use a proper gear range which suits road conditions. On level roads, shift into high gear as soon as possible.
  • Avoid unnecessary engine idling.
  • Keep your engine tuned up.
  • Follow the recommended scheduled maintenance.
  • Keep the tires inflated to the correct pressure.

    Low tire pressure increases tire wear and lowers fuel economy.

  • Keep the wheels in correct alignment. Improper alignment increases tire wear and lowers fuel economy.
  • Air conditioner operation lowers fuel economy. Use the air conditioner only when necessary.
  • When cruising at highway speeds, it is more economical to use the air conditioner and leave the windows closed to reduce drag.
  • Use the recommended viscosity engine oil.

    For additional information, refer to “Engine oil and oil filter recommendations” in “Technical and consumer information” in this manual.
