Fuel Saving Tips

Avoid High Speeds

As your speed increases, your aerodynamic drag increases in an exponential fashion. Hence, Don’t Drive aggressively / Drive at the Speed Limit: Avoid aggressive driving and aggressive starts. All vehicles lose fuel economy at speeds above 55 mph. Driving 65 instead of 75 mph reduces fuel cost 13%. Driving 55 would save 25%.

Choose the right fuel

What can help is buying your fuel from a reputable retailer to ensure you’re getting the best quality product for your money. Shop around and if you find that a certain brand of fuel gives you better economy and value for money, stick with it. Such fuels often contain more advanced detergents, which will keep your car engine clean and this will give you more efficiency.

Drive or Purchase a Fuel-Efficient Vehicle

Drive your most fuel-efficient vehicle whenever possible. When purchasing, consider the most fuel efficient vehicle and save up to 50%. What we would say is that it always pays to choose your car wisely. Think about what you’ll use it for, where you’ll drive it and how many miles you’ll do. Then choose a car that does the job but doesn’t have size, performance or features that you’ll hardly ever use.

Use Air-Conditioner Sparingly

When the air conditioner is on it puts extra load on the engine forcing more fuel to be used (by about 20%). The defrost position on most vehicles also uses the air conditioner. Switching off the car air conditioner while climbing a hill or a flyover reduces that much load on the engine and thereby also improving the car fuel economy. Check your manual to know the specifics of your model. Having air conditioner on without being aware may be costing you dearly.

Keep Tyres Properly Inflated

Keep tire air pressure at the level recommended by your vehicle manufacturer. A single tire under inflated by 2 PSI, increases fuel consumption by 1%. When you check the pressure in your tires don't forget to check the pressure in your spare. A big part of improving your car’s fuel efficiency is reducing the amount of energy that’s needed to move it along the road. Tyre wear increases too. Check your tyre pressures every month and re-inflate them to the manufacturer’s recommendations where necessary.

Get it serviced regularly

Modern cars require far less maintenance than they used to but ignoring the service intervals laid down by the manufacturer is a recipe for all kinds of trouble, including reduced fuel economy. When that little spanner illuminates on the dash, it’s time to book it in at the garage. Not wait another 3,000 miles or so. Proper maintenance avoids poor fuel economy related to dirty air filters, old spark plugs or low fluid levels.

Plan your journey

Getting lost is a great way to waste fuel. Therefore, plan your journey properly in order to avoid wastage of money and time. If possible, think about making journeys at times of day when the roads are quieter. A car’s engine uses more fuel while it’s warming up so a single journey with three or four stops on the way is better than heading out and back on three or four separate occasions.
