Fuel prices are one of the biggest concerns among vehicle owners. The prices varies everyday so it is time to know what are the best ways to prevent from using more fuel than you should!
1. Don’t Load Your Trunk
While the purpose of the trunk is to store your car essentials, it is advisable for you to put away all the heavy items in the garage instead and save your car all the trouble from going the mile. Not only will it reduce the filling-up, it will make your driving experience a smooth one too.
2. Are You Wearing The Right Shoe?
Yup you heard me. Did you know when you wear shoes with thick soles, it makes the driving slightly tricky because they apply extra weight to the accelerator making it difficult to speed up smoothly. Well, now you know!
3. Cool Your Car The Right Way
Air con takes up your car fuel more than anything else especially if you are driving at low speeds. So why not take that opportunity while you are on the freeway and roll up the windows!
4. Wrong Tyre Pressure
The more surface area of the tire is in contact with the road, the more fuel is needed. Hence why, it is ideal to check your car tyre constantly and be aware if you are using the right tyre for your car.
It is inevitable not to feel that sense of satisfaction from filling up a full tank but it also means that it might just be a habit. Know when you should fill it up in full and when it is really required.
