There always seems to be an ever-increasing fuel cost but never an ever-increasing wage!  Here are some tips on how to save fuel when driving that may just help you save a little.

Under-inflated tyres are one of the main reasons for inefficient fuel consumption. Tyres tend to lose air and temperature over time, which uses more fuel as there is more resistance.  It will also lead to the tyres wearing down more quickly.

Don’t drive aggressively and always drive within the speed limit. Increasing your speed also decreases your fuel economy. By driving at a slower speed it will help reduce fuel consumption, thereby helping you to save fuel.

Using your air conditioning also increase fuel costs. This can be taken care of by using the flow-through ventilation, instead of switching on the AC.

By undertaking regular maintenance of your vehicle you can cut down on fuel costs. The maintenance should be done as per the instructions given in the vehicle’s instruction manual.
