No matter how much you get bored and put it off, keeping your car clean will not only give you aesthetic satisfaction, but it will also ease your pocket in terms of fuel.
According to research carried out by the British ATS Euromaster, a clean car is more aerodynamically efficient and this contributes significantly to reducing fuel consumption, especially if the driver is driving on a long highway.
A clean car is more aerodynamically efficient
At the same time, the research comes to dispel the myth that wanted dirty cars to be more economical to consume. According to him, the unevenness created in the surfaces of the body due to the contaminants works like the uniform small dents that a golf ball has.
These dimples actually increase the distance the goal ball can travel in the air compared to a perfectly smooth ball.
Save up to 10%
A car that is cleaned at regular intervals can save up to 10% in fuel compared to a car that is never cleaned, according to the British, apparently if it spends the vast majority of kilometers on the highway.
According to carandmotor, a clean car on the outside makes the most of its aerodynamically designed body, while on the contrary, pollutants that accumulate on the body increase aerodynamic resistance and consequently fuel consumption.
For optimal results, we make sure to properly clean the lower part of the car as well as the wheel arches because mud and other pollutants accumulate there that intensify the rotation of the air at that particular point.
