How to save petrol...

  1. 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.
  2. Use higher gear
    The higher gear you drive in, the lower your engine speed is, which can improve fuel efficiency.
  3. 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.
  4. Keep your tyres at the right pressure
    Tyres that are under-inflated by just 1 psi can reduce fuel efficiency by 3%.
  5. Avoid carrying excess weight
    For every extra 45 kg, your fuel efficiency can drop by 1% - 2%.
  6. Keep the windows close
    Wind blowing through an open window will slow you down, causing you to put your foot down, using more fuel.
  7. Use the correct oil
    Using the correct oil can improve the fuel efficiency by 1% - 2%.
  8. Avoid excess idling
    Idling gets you no where but you burn fuel.
  9. Cruise control
  10. Take the roof rack off
So, everyone use these steps to reduce your fuel consumption. Save petrol!!!

I think the best way is to walk, save electricity and riding bicycle. What do you think? A green car perhaps (quite expensive)?
