10 Tips To Save Fuel


10 Tips To Save Fuel

  1. Coast where possible, such as down hills or towards a stop, as many modern engines cut off or reduce the fuel to the engine when coasting.
  2. Keep your tyre pressure within the suggested range. If it’s too low it increases resistance and uses more furl.
  3. Drive at times of less traffic congestion to reduce stop-start and idle time.
  4. Avoid flooring and instead go for gentle accelerations. For example, use on-ramps to match approaching traffic speed slowly rather than quick acceleration.
  5. When moving in traffic lines, avoid heavy braking, don’t press the accelerator and just let the engine pull you slowly.
  6. Get smart about the traffic lights, if you see red in the distance, slowly decelerate so that on chance it turns green you can move on through rather than having to accelerate all the way up to your prior speed.
  7. Drive behind a larger profile vehicle to lower resistance on your vehicle and engine.
  8. Your Air Conditioning is a fuel-consumption source. When your vehicle is at temperature, turn AC off to conserve fuel.
  9. Avoid reversing in the morning or out of a parking space, as manoeuvring takes time and uses additional fuel.
  10. When running errands, watch your short trips; do the longest part of the trip first to warm the engine up and operate more efficiently for the following trips.
