Tips On How You Can Save Fuel Of Your Car While Driving

Every time you get behind the wheel there is an opportunity to practically save money. Or improve the fuel economy of your car. The following are fuel-saving tips which may help you to conserve some fuel while driving.

Stay aerodynamic
Wind resistance increases fuel consumption; so try to keep windows closed at high speed and remove roof racks and boxes when not in use. Removing a roof-top cargo box can save as much as 20 per cent on fuel over a year.

Slow down

According to the AA, dropping from 80mph to 70mph could save you up to 25 per cent on fuel. And if you are on smaller roads, slowing down from 70mph to 60mph could save another 10 per cent Maintenance.

Sensible driving
Read the road ahead, anticipating the actions of other drivers and potential hazards. The less braking and acceleration made in a driving stretch, the less fuel that will be used. For instance, drive smoothly in heavy traffic and avoid driving fast to catch with the car in front so as not to brake randomly.

Drop the revs
Some motorists who drive manual transmission vehicles let the revs (revolutions per minute or RPM) run to 3,000 per minute (petrol car) and 2,500 (diesel) before changing up a gear. It is more efficient to move up a gear at 2,500 (petrol) and 2,000 (diesel). Also, use high gears such as fifth and sixth gears sooner than later.

Look after tyres
Well maintained tyres are essential for safe and economical driving. Check tyre pressures regularly (especially before a highway journey). Correctly inflated tyres can improve fuel consumption by up to 2 per cent.

Reduce weight

A lighter car will use less fuel, therefore do not drive around with unnecessary items in your boot and unless you are on a long journey, consider running your fuel tank half full or less.

Speed bumps
Braking hard, accelerating, then braking for the next speed bump is inefficient and uses extra fuel. Try to drive along at a steady 15-20mph instead.

Air conditioner or open windows?
The use of air-conditioning slightly increases fuel consumption, especially at low speed. If it’s a hot day, use the air conditioning for high speed driving, but open the windows around town.

Ditch the car
It sounds obvious, but the simplest way to save on your fuel costs is to cut your car use – try walking, cycling or use public transport for shorter journeys.

Drive a manual

Manual car |
According to the AA, automatics use 10 per cent to 5 per cent more fuel than manuals.

However, the gap is closing as modern and efficient semi-automatics become more popular. There is also little difference between automatics and manuals on motorways. Work out how much fuel you use every week. Now try slowing down for a week and see what difference it makes.

Find out the facts when thinking about whether you need a car and make sure you know how much different types of cars cost to run.
