                                    Fuel Conservation - Why & How

Why Fuel Conservation:

     Conventional Fuels are limited resources on our Earth.  They are natural resources (fossil) and are exhaustible (non-renewable like Solar Energy) in a few centuries.  Even the fuels we manufacture are made from natural resources and use electricity to make them.  Electricity is generated using fossil fuels.

    Excessive use and burning of fuels as well as their inefficient use cause pollution and global warming.  Our Earth's natural reserves will be emptied faster and Earth's ecological system balance will be tampered with.  Our descendants could face problems of fuel shortage in future.  So we must conserve all fuels.

  Also, government spends a lot of money for subsidizing fuel to the people.  Fuel saved is money saved at national level.

  Due to pollution our air and water bodies are affected.  Our health is indirectly affected.  Ozone layer is perforated due to CFC (chlorofluoro Carbons).  So Less fuel burnt enables Ozone layer to protect us better.

    Moreover, we import fuels.  We pay foreign currency to get it.  An excessive use of fuel makes us dependent on other countries. It is not a favourable situation.

   We must save fuel and energy as a social obligation to our society and responsibility.


  We should all take actions individually and collectively.

1. Save water. Don't waste or throw it.  If used water can be further used for gardening and watering plants etc. please do so.  Water that comes to our bathrooms and kitchens, uses a lot of fuel indirectly to reach us.
2. Use only as much as required - any products we use.  To manufacture, transport, sell, buy a product - some fuel is spent in some form.  Let that be rice, vegetables, chips, fuel, cement, furniture, or a vehicle.

3. Use electricity carefully and prudently.  Switch off gadgets when not in use.  To make electricity, some fuel is used in some where.

4. Use public or shared transport if possible.  Go by walk if the destinations are nearby.

5.  At traffic lights, switch off engines of vehicles during the waiting period.  A lot of fuel is wasted and pollution is created there.  Many government, public and private transport company owned vehicles do not switch off their engines at Signals. In western world they do.  In India the drivers do not do that due to the fear of engines not starting quickly.  So better ignition technology is required.
6. Encourage recycle, regenerate, reduce types of technologies and processes.  Make it a habit to check if you are following processes, gadgets that are efficient.  Whenever you buy some thing, check its ratings & approvals.

7. Encourage green technologies.  Use latest electric lamps.  Use electric scooters, and cars.  Buy and use solar heaters, solar equipment.  There are bio-fuels and some efficient new engines.

8. Population control is required.  The population is growing at an alarming rate. So are the fuel requirements !  If we control population, fuel consumption is also reduced.

9. Encourage use of bicycles in places that are safe.  Use bicycles. Many western countries ban fuel based vehicles in certain locations.

10. Spread awareness about fuel saving and use of bio-fuels among people.  Provide them facilities to do so.

11. Big Corporates and governments need to come together to improve fuels, more efficient motors, engines, technologies, processes and system.

12. Create employment opportunities in small towns and villages.  Then people do not migrate to highly populated urban areas.  The consumption is very high in cities.

13. Create good and fast urban transit systems, like metros and trams.  Then use of private transport may reduce.

14. Ban the use of inefficient motors and machinery.  Invention of economic green fuels is required.

15. Regarding transport vehicles and machinery using fuels, do maintenance regularlyAvoid idling.  Keep the tyres at proper pressure.  Drive at recommended speed for optimum fuel mileage.  Monitor mileage regularly.

   Even though the prices of fuel are going up, the demand is still growing. So explicit actions are required to save fuel or create better fuels.  Teach children to save fuel and practice the suggestions.

   Being rich or having a status does not authorize wasting fuel or energy.  If we remember this, then we will surely make fuel conservation as our habit.  We need to be humble in this regard.

Fuel is a substance which is used to produce heat energy through chemical reaction. Without it, today no machine is going to be work. All are depend on this to run. Even from a small screw to a big generator there is a need of it. But today, our India is facing a severe fuel crisis. 

                    In our day to day life, it is also a basic need of us. Due to it's lackness, Most countries have to import fuel to meet their needs by spending high amount today. We can say this by seeing the nearest petrol bunks.If we saw them we can find there a long queues of vehicles because there was no fuel to tank up on. It's our time situation about fuel. 
                    How panic it is? What about our future generations? Their life conditions might be so difficult without these fuel. They have to work hard to do asmall work also. They have to suffer a lot. If it continues like this, there will be no industries which are going to be run in future. Such that we can't get any material even a small thing also because the things which we are using most today like plastic, paraffin wax, computers, cars, pharmaceuticals, etc are getting from the industries only on which fuel is the basic need to get all these.
                   Fuels like petrol and diesel are also not clean fuels. They cause pollution and increase C02 emissions. So we have to stop using fuel highly which is responsible for causing Global Warming.
                    It's really makes our life tough if we still continue the usage of fuel in large amounts. In order to avoid this, We have to bring awareness on people.
We have to turn of our vehicles at traffic. We have to encourage car pooling and have to minimise the usage of applying brakes. We have to use hybrid cars which run both on gas and electricity. Electric cars like the Indian Reva are good choices. Under-inflated tires reduce fuel efficiency. Travelling the least distaces by walk or using bicycle is good for health and helps for fuel conservation too.. So, Save Fuel, Save Future
