- Drive smoothly
Aggressive driving can use a lot of fuel. Avoid accelerating too hard or braking too hard and try to keep your steering as smooth as possible.
- Use higher gear
The higher gear you drive in, the lower your engine speed is, which can improve fuel efficiency.
- Tune and service your engine
A well-tuned engine can improve fuel economy by up to 4%, so change your oil and follow your car manufacture's recommendation.
- Keep your tyres at the right pressure
Tyres that are under-inflated by just 1 psi can reduce fuel efficiency by 3%.
- Avoid carrying excess weight
For every extra 45 kg, your fuel efficiency can drop by 1% - 2%.
- Keep the windows close
Wind blowing through an open window will slow you down, causing you to put your foot down, using more fuel.
- Use the correct oil
Using the correct oil can improve the fuel efficiency by 1% - 2%.
- Avoid excess idling
Idling gets you no where but you burn fuel.
- Cruise control
- Take the roof rack off
So, everyone use these steps to reduce your fuel consumption. Save petrol!!!
