How to Save Money On Petrol

With prices increasing on the forecourt, here are 6 ways to save money on petrol and diesel.

  1. Maintain correct tyre pressure
    Keeping the tyres at the right pressure can make a difference. So check them regularly.
  2. Do the 20p tread check
    Worn tyres waste fuel and money. Watch how to do the 20p tyre tread check.
  3. Reduce excess weight from boot
    Carrying around heavy stuff in the boot will burn fuel unnecessarily. Take it out now!
  4. Only top up with what you need
    Filling-up the tank adds to the weight you’re driving around and so needlessly burns fuel. Only top-up with what you need for the next week or so.
  5. Go easy on the pedal
    Speeding, unnecessary acceleration and gear changes is not only dangerous but risks landing you with a fine. It also wastes fuel. Smooth driving and gear changes saves money – as well as lives!
  6. Avoid idling!
    Idling wastes fuel – cut it out when you can. Its better for environment too!
