Save money on fuel

  “The Best” gives you useful advice how you can make your fuel go further; Efficient driving tips could help you cut your fuel spend by a third. Here’s how:

  •  Keep your tyres inflated; driving your car with just one tyre at 20% below the correct pressure can increase fuel consumption by 4%.
  • De-clutter your car; the lighter your car is, the less effort it needs to make to accelerate.
  • Remove your roof rack; if you’re not using it, as it increases the drag and makes the engine work harder.
  • Turn off the air con; this could improve your fuel efficiency by 8%.
  • Don’t fill the tank; Keep the weight of your car down by only filling up to ½ or ¾ full.
  • Accelerate gradually and slow naturally; it’s more economical to increase speed gradually. The harder you press the accelerator, the more fuel flows. Furthermore gradual braking and minimum use of gears saves fuel
  • Drive in the correct gear; always drive in the highest gear possible without labouring the engine.
  • Don’t run your tank dry; always fill up at least fifty miles before your tank’s empty to avoid panic buying and spending more.
