Top 5 Tips to Save Fuel
As Saving Fuel means Savings for the whole family, here are some Fuel Saving Tips for all motorists out there:
1. Drive Smoothly:
Aggressive Driving can use as much as a third more fuel than safe driving. Avoid Accelerating and Braking too hard, to keep your steering as smooth as possible.
2. Use Higher Gears:
The higher gear you drive in, the lower your engine speed is, which can improve fuel efficiency. So change up a gear whenever you can, without labouring the engine.
3. Avoid Over Revving:
Change gear in good time when you pull away or when you are accelerating. Never “redline” the rev counter.
4. Avoid High Speeds:
The faster you go, the more wind resistance you encounter. and the more fuel your vehicle will use to maintain speed. Driving just a few kilometres per hour under the 90km/h speed limit can lower fuel economy compared to driving 20km/h over the speed limit.
5. Avoid Excess Idling:
Idling gets you no where and burns fuel. As a rule, if you have stopped for over 10 seconds, switch off your engine.
