Now also in Switzerland
New Google feature helps save gas
Inflation is putting increasing pressure on Swiss families: a new Google function can now provide some relief, allowing drivers to get from A to B using as little fuel as possible.
A new Google feature shows which route burns the least amount of fuel.
Open the app, select the destination, and the Google Maps app will check the route. Travel time should be as short as possible. At least that was the most important selection criterion so far.
With the sharp rise in petrol and diesel prices, drivers can increasingly prefer those roads where they have to burn very little.
The online service Google Maps is a response to the growing need for the Swiss people to travel in a climate-friendly and wallet-friendly way. The most economical and environmentally friendly route can now also be called on Google Maps.
Calculated by car model

With just a few clicks, your own vehicle type can be stored. This shows the relative fuel economy and timing difference between the two tracks. In addition to reducing carbon dioxide emissions, users can also achieve fuel cost savings. The job was offered in Germany a few weeks ago.
