7 Ways to a better mileage

7 Ways to a better mileage


Mileage is the distance covered by your car in miles on a gallon of fuel. Here are 7 ways you could save money by improving your car’s mileage inclusive one very important tip that every car owners should have!

  1. Keep the pressure optimal

Optimal tyre pressure will help you increase fuel efficiency as it increases contact area between the road and tyre. Not only will this help with improving your mileage but it will also improve your cars grip giving you more control.


  1. Consolidate trips

Save on travel time and improve mileage by combining as many trips as possible. Longer trips consume less fuel then separate shorter trips.

  1. Lose some weight

Don’t worry! We are not telling you to hit the gym unless you want to. But a heavier car will obviously suck up more fuel, so lose that spare tyre and clean out your boot to lose some weight.


  1. Cleanliness is key

Dirty or clogged filters significantly reduce your mileage. Shelling out a bit of cash to replace or clean them will help you save money in the long run by improving your mileage.

  1. Plan your routes

Using a route planner will help you chose the shortest and fastest way to your destination. Being smart in planning trips will improve your car’s mileage.


  1. Keep it closed and cold

Contrary to what we all think, open windows will drain the tank much faster and impact fuel efficiency. Keeping the windows shut and the air conditioning will in fact make you more fuel-efficient.

  1. Carmen
