DRIVING ADVICE, ECO DRIVING (8/8)
- In vehicles fitted with air condi-

increase in fuel consumption (espe-
cially in urban conditions) when it is
used. For vehicles fitted with manual
air conditioning, switch off the system
when it is not required.
Advice for reducing consumption
and therefore helping to preserve
the environment:
If the vehicle has been parked in the
sun, open the doors for a few mo-
ments to let the hot air escape before
starting the engine.
