Fuel Saving Tips

Maximum Mileage. Maximum Ride.

Follow these guidelines and kick start an awesome journey on the road.

Do's
  • Drive at steady speed.
  • Maintain correct tyre pressure.
  • Adjust drive chain tension correctly.
  • Get your engine tuned and motorcycle serviced regularly by a Hero MotoCorp authorised workshop.
Dont's
  • Do not keep the clutch lever pressed while driving.
  • Do not run the engine in low gear for long times.
  • Do not park your motorcycle under direct sunlight as it causes evaporation of petrol.
  • Do not keep brake pedal pressed while riding.
  • Do not raise the engine rpm during traffic halts, switch “OFF” the engine if the halt is more than 30 seconds.
  • Do not cover inlet of air filter assembly.
  • Do not cover the engine in the front and sides. This may restrict the smooth air flow to the engine fins required for air cooling and the engine may run at a higher temperature.

In case you wish to have the fuel efficiency tested, please visit the nearest |Authorised Hero MotoCorp workshop and ask for a fuel efficiency test (KPL Test) done. Make any adjustments that are found necessary.

For Petrol Engine two/ three wheelers the current regulation requirement as follows:-

  • Idle CO (Carbon Monoxide)% = 3.0 % (Max.)
  • HC (Hydro carbon) ppm = 3000 ppm (Max.)

Vehicles which do not undergo a periodic maintenance are liable to emit exhaust gases more than the permissible limit.

Few Important tips to maintain low emission levels:-

  • Clean spark plug and maintain specified gap between electrodes.
  • keep the air filter clean.
  • Get the carburetor tuned at authorized Hero MotoCorp Workshop.
  • Do not overfill the engine oil and follow the replacement schedule.
  • Avoid use of adulterated fuel.
  • You should get the emission level certified once every 3 months at any of the authorized emission checking centres.
