also increase  wear on these  com-
ponents.  In  addition,  driving  with
your foot resting on the brake pedal
may cause the brakes to overheat,
which  reduces  their  effectiveness
and may lead to more serious con-
tion. For  better fuel  economy  and
reduced maintenance costs, main-
tain  your   vehicle  in   accordance
with the  maintenance  schedule in
Section 7. If you drive  your vehicle
in severe conditions, more frequent
maintenance    is    required    (see
Section 7 for details).
Each  of  these  factors   affects  how
many  miles (kilometers) you can get
from a    gallon (liter) of fuel. To oper-
ate your  vehicle as  economically as
possible,  use  the   following  driving
suggestions  to help  save  money in
both fuel and repairs:

is one of the most effective ways to
