Do the cobblestone or brick roads in many European cities cause fuel efficiency to go down?

    Rough or uneven surfaces on roads can cause fuel efficiency to go down because the car must work a little harder to maintain its speed. This is why road upkeep and smooth rads are employed today. The rate at which one’s fuel is used up depends on the vehicle, type of surface being driven on, and how long the car is on the uneven surface. Among other factors, the percentage at which fuel is consumed on a cobblestone road isn’t as significant as say driving through sand of loose mud, but it can be noticeable at the end of the day. I would worry more about the wear and tear on the tires of the car when driving over bumps consistently.
