Fuel saving tips for Cars There are many things that can be done to increase the MPG on your Car, here are some that will help reduce your fuel bills.
Check Tyres / Pressures -This is one of the more important factors on reducing fuel consumption usage on your car. Lower than ideal pressure will increase your fuel consumption and hence decrease MPG.
Unneccessary weight removed - Remove any extra weight before travelling.
Drive Slower - This may sound obvious, but careful driving is sometimes overlooked. You are in a car, it's not a race so relax your foot on the accelerator and chill out en route instead.
Smooth Acceleration - When the lights change, don't gun the car, instead press smoothly down and pull away, don't try to fit into small gaps between traffic by hitting the accelerator.
car servicing up to date - Obviously a poorly serviced engine can give reduced performance and / or increased fuel consumption.
Use Cruise Control (if fitted) - Cruise Control gives smooth controlled speed when on the open road which is ideal for keeping fuel costs down, so if you have got it, then use it !
Brake Slowly - Let the car brake itself using friction when approaching stopping points, anticipate braking and instead of stamping down on the Brake pedal, relax off on the Accelerator pedal earlier allowing the car to brake itself more.
Roof Baggage - If your roof is laden with roof boxes, skis etc then if possible find alternative ways of stowing gear away within the confines of the car and hence streamlining the roofline.
Engine Remapping - car remapping can increase torque and reduce fuel consumption.
