Hi George

If something is economical, it saves money or resources. It's similar in meaning to "not wasteful".
An economical car uses a minimum amount of gasoline (petrol) to drive a maximum number of miles (kilometers).

The word economic is related to the economy or finances, money matters, or wealth.
There was a rise in unemployment due to the economic downturn.
