Factors To Be Considered While Driving A Car With Manual Gearbox System

Do you know your driving skills effect the performance of your car to huge extent? There are lots of people who think that by driving slow they are protecting its machinery from getting damaged and also from getting it hit by fellow drivers. The second though is undoubtedly the best way to protect the aesthetics of your car to certain extent, but the former thought of driving car at low speed adversely impacts it working efficiency rather than protecting its machinery from damage.

While you are driving on the highway at high speed on the top gear, it results in saving the fuel at low engine RPM. Although the top speed of the car can be attained only when you change the gears progressively to protect the engine from facing useless pressure. There are two methods by which you pressurize the engine of your car, driving the car at low gear at high speed and the other method is continuously pressing the accelerator even while driving at high speed. The best way is to change the gears accordingly when the indicator reveals you to change the gear.
