HO CHI MINH CITY nike free rn motion flyknit sale , March 10 (Xinhua) -- About 77 percent of Vietnamese drivers do not know how to save fuel even though many see fuel efficiency as important, a new study revealed.

The Shell Fuel Efficiency Fact or Fiction Report on Vietnamese drivers' behavior released on March 5 showed that 87 percent of the drivers surveyed consider fuel efficiency an important matter, but 77 percent admit they do not know how to save fuel.

The Shell Fuel Efficiency Fact or Fiction Report was commissioned by U.S.-based oil company Shell and conducted by independent research firm Edelman Berland in December 2014, the Tuoi Tre News reported Tuesday.

The survey used an online questionnaire with a nationally representative sample of 1,000 drivers aged 18 to 40.

In the study nike free 5.0 flyknit sale , 64 percent of the respondents say they feel anxious about trying to decide how best to save fuel, leading many to apply peculiar fuel saving ways.

It shows that 85 percent of respondents warm up their engine before setting off to make them more fuel efficient, while 41 percent think filling up at night does the same trick.

Meanwhile, 97 percent practice driving slowly all the time to help them save fuel, and 83 percent keep their engine running to avoid frequent restarts.

According to Tran Hong Van nike free tr 5 flyknit sale , general manager of Shell Vietnam, some of the practices revealed through the study were actually wasting fuel rather than helping conserve it.

The study also showed that 57 percent of responding drivers said that they are responsible for saving fuel for the future, while 79 percent are looking to scientists to do that, in addition to 70 percent putting their trust in engineers.

Drivers are unable to distinguish between different types of lubricants, with seven out of 10 (71 percent) not knowing the difference between a mineral and synthetic engine oillubricant nike free 3.0 flyknit sale , said the study.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation has lost about five months worth of text messages between two staffers who worked on probes into former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's emails and possible collusion between Russia and President Donald Trump's 2016 presidential campaign, according to a Republican lawmaker.

Wisconsin Senator Ron Johnson, who chairs the Senate Homeland Security Committee, revealed in a Jan. 20 letter that the FBI's technical system failed to preserve texts that were exchanged between Lisa Page, a lawyer nike free flyknit chukka sale , and Peter Strzok, an agent, between mid-December 2016 through mid-May of 2017.

A spokesman for the FBI and a spokeswoman for the Justice Department declined to comment.

Congressional Republicans have been focusing on Strzok and Page in recent weeks after learning the two had exchanged anti-Trump text messages on their work-issued cell phones.

Republicans have said the texts, which referred to Trump as an "idiot" and a "loathsome human," raised concerns the FBI is biased against Trump and may have given Clinton favorable treatment after deciding not to recommend criminal charges in connection with the probe into her use of a private email system while she was secretary of state.

Strzok and Page were involved in that investigation and also were briefly assigned to work with Special Counsel Robert Mueller on the Russia investigation.

After Mueller learned about the texts, Strzok was re-assigned to a different post. Page's 45-day detail on Mueller's team ended in July.

In his letter, Johnson said he learned of the software problem from the FBI on Jan. 19 www.babybare.org , after it gave 384 texts to the committee, one of several in Congress that recently launched inquiries into how the FBI handled the Clinton investigation.

"The loss of records from this period is concerning because it is apparent from other records that Mr. Strzok and Ms. Page communicated frequently about the investigation," Johnson wrote.

He cited examples, including an exchange between Strzok and Page that took place in May 2016, after it became apparent that Trump would likely be the Republican presidential candidate.

"Now the pressure really starts to finish [midyear exam] nike free womens sale ," Strzok wrote, in what Johnson's letter says is a reference to the Clinton investigation.

"It sure does," Page responded.

In his letter, Johnson asked the FBI to follow up with more details about the scope of the lost records, and to tell the committee whether it has conducted searches of their non-government issued devices.
