Let us assume, before using the given three devices,
four-wheelers take X unit fuel.
By using all the three devices, fuel consumption will
reduced to

= X * (100тАУ25)* (100тАУ30)*(100тАУ45)
................................
100* 100 * 100
= 0.28875 X

Hence, percentage saving in fuel consumption

X - 0.28875X * 100 = 71.125%
................
X
