try to drive at low rpm... for eg. ur driving 60KM/h at 4th gear... for auto matic, do not press hard on gas... u will c the difference...

till 3000 RPM engine runs economically... try not to cross 3K RPM will also help a lot n I have experience...

Nah! I dont think there should be any problem, but I think you better use either one to be on safe side.

BTW, welcome to UaeBoost... Hope you will enjoy...

sure bro...
mikeh's tips were really amazin....these information are very imp. ti know especially after the price hike of fuel in uae! and remember guyz the happy petrol u get frm adnoc maybe makes 3-5 dh difference if u fill up the tank..therfore for such a small discount the sacrifice the engine has to bear is not worth! it is completely useless!although its a gr8 step frm the adnoc company to help!
the fuel additives really help and they are avalable in all petrol stations! STA is da best....it is mainly jet fuel with high grade absorbants!
in manual transmission changing the gear with the rpm between 2500-4000
gives better mileage...the lower the rpm the lower the fuel consumption!

spark plugs makes a lot difference...usually all the company cars come wid normal spark plugs but nowadayz platinum and irdium spark plugs are in the market...iridum are quite expensive der4 platinum is mostly prefferred n gives better mileage than the company plugs...go for splitfire for better performance in terms of horse power and better mileage!
take care...
