    Driving tips on Hyundai i10 Magna next generation

    I have a Hyundai i10 magna next generation. I had started learning how to drive from 4 months. I mainly drive on Highways. I need to know how to drive or you can say driving style. I will tell you how do I drive. When I drive my car I drive it solely and if by any chance I am on good speed I try and come sown my speed. But while slowing down I use clutch and leave the accelerator. But I think even if I leave the accelerator and if I donít use clutch then also it slows down. So I wanted to know how to slow down the speed. By which I can save fuel and keep good engine.

    You should avoid using clutch as much as possible while slowing down your car or I can say donít use clutch until it is required so that you can get better mileage. And also do keep a watch what speed you are at and as per that keep changing the gear.

    So you mean to say that I should not use any pedal while slowing down. But I was thinking that if I use clutch while slowing down the car goes for long distance and if I donít use the clutch the car stops at shorter distance.

    Himesh let me tell you that the method you use is not the perfect method to drive a car. It is better you leave all the pedals which helps you to control your car a per the road condition. And yes you car would go long distance if you use your clutch as the car is free and it is actually on idle. It is same as you are pushing you car without gear.

    Thank you for your reply but handling is not the problem for me as now I am use to it and even comfortable with it. I just want to know will this habit damage anything in my car or mileage of my car.

    I have never mentioned anything about handling. I have mentioned the control and it is totally different form Handling. The control you talking would be much better than costing more. You would notice these things when you drive on the same road with both the methods. Generally it is not advisable to use clutch for long time. And talking about mileage it would a bit difference in this mileage if you use the clutch you would be getting less mileage and if you donít use clutch more than you would get more mileage. And the difference would be of only 1 KMPL.

    I think you are talking about stopping a car. In this kind of cases it is advisable to use engine braking to the maximum and then use the clutch and then brake. And after that leave the brake change the gear and leave the clutch too.

    I have also recently learnt to drive in Mumbai. And as we know Mumbai has lots of traffic and it needs lots of clutch to use. So will it burn the clutch plate early and will it affect the mileage as well. As of now I am using Hyundai Santo Xing 2005 model and it gives me 12 Kmpl mileage in which sometimes I use AC also.

    I also use clutch more in my Maruti Alto K 10, as frequent gear change in traffic, I need to use the clutch almost 70% in city. While stopping I use clutch followed by brake. I am also afraid of using brake and accelerator with same foot as sometimes I press accelerator in place of brakes.

    It will be better for you to use without clutch otherwise your mileage will get effected.
