Is there ecodriving in automatic transmissions?
It takes approx. 1 minutes to read this article

Many drivers wonder whether the issue of ecodriving also applies to cars with automatic transmissions. Since the basis for economical and ecological driving are the gear ratios, it seems that the driver in an automatic does not affect the fuel consumption? But this is a misconception!

Indeed, the automatic transmission changes gears by itself, but it is up to the driver to decide at what point the gears are shifted. This means that you still have an impact on fuel consumption and ecology of your car.

If you press the accelerator hard and suddenly, the gears are quickly reduced, and if you let off the pedal, the gears are reduced. When driving an automatic, drive smoothly, without sudden reactions. After time you will find out yourself what is the optimum limit of your car’s revolutions. This, in turn, will allow you to stabilize driving and fuel consumption at the lowest level, without harming the engine.
