The least economical way of driving a car is to use full throttle constantly and rev the engine to its’ maximum speed in every gear. Gentler use of the accelerator means more economical driving. It is still possible to make good progress even if you never depress more than half of the accelerator pedal. You will simply take slightly longer to reach your intended cruising speed.
When a car is travelling at a constant speed along a level road, most of the power of the engine is used to overcome aerodynamic resistance. Cars with more aerodynamic shapes can therefore cruise with less fuel. There isn't much you can do about the shape of your car, but the same effect means that open windows or sunroofs; which create aerodynamic drag; will also make the car less economical. So will anything that uses extra power, lights, windscreen wipers, air-conditioning, audio systems and heated rear windows all require power to varying degrees. All affect fuel economy, which is why they are switched off during official fuel economy tests.
Economy tests give nothing more than a comparitive guide to fuel economy, a car gets 32.4mpg in the official test will not necessarily do 32.4 miles for every gallon of fuel you use.
The most efficient range of engine speeds depends very much on the individual car, but a good guide is that a petrol-engined car will operate economically between 2000 and 4000rpm, while a turbo diesel will do so between 1500 and 2500rpm.
