How do I save money on petrol?
The price of fuel is rising and with this being the case it is now more important than ever that you pay particular attention to the amount of fuel that you use.
Here are our top tips on saving fuel:
Check your tyre pressures regularly. If your tyres are under inflated you will use more fuel.
The heavier your vehicle the more fuel you will use. It is therefore important that you remove anything from your vehicle that does not need to be there.
Avoid rapid acceleration and heavy braking as this will use a significant amount of fuel.
Change up a gear at lower revs – 2,500rpm in a petrol engine and 2,000rpm in a diesel.
Air conditioning uses up fuel, if you do not need it on turn it off.
TURN IT OFF
Don’t let your engine run idle, if you are not driving turn the engine off.
The faster you drive, the more fuel you use.
CONVERT TO GAS
Converting your vehicle to LPG would reduce your fuel costs by up to 50%!
COMPARE FUEL PRICES
Instead of simply using your usual or local petrol station, shop around. A good site to use for this is www.petrolprices.com.
