How to Save Money On Petrol
With prices increasing on the forecourt, here are 6 ways to save money on petrol and diesel.
- Maintain correct tyre pressure
Keeping the tyres at the right pressure can make a difference. So check them regularly.
- Do the 20p tread check
Worn tyres waste fuel and money. Watch how to do the 20p tyre tread check.
- Reduce excess weight from boot
Carrying around heavy stuff in the boot will burn fuel unnecessarily. Take it out now!
- 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.
- 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!
- Avoid idling!
Idling wastes fuel – cut it out when you can. Its better for environment too!
