What effect does driving whilst keeping proper distance from the vehicle in front has on the vehicle’s fuel consumption and wear?

  • It is required to keep a proper distance to prevent accidents only, and it has no effect on the vehicle’s wear or fuel consumption.
  • The shorter is the distance kept from the vehicle in front, the lower are both brake wear and fuel consumption.
  • In order to keep proper distance from the vehicle in front you are required to constantly use the brakes, and therefore it causes quick brake wear.
  • When proper distance is kept – brake wear and engine fuel consumption are reduced,
