- Do not over rev the engine in the in-

vance, you may then simply release
the accelerator pedal.

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.
