2 The newspaper found that the real-life consumption is approximateky 25 % higher than the standard , many people believe that it is not possible to reach standard consumption in real traffic. However, experience shows that drivers can not only reach standard consumption but achieve a fuel consumption that is about 20 % below the standard consumption when adopting Eco-driving 1 The great consumption lie.
