Fuel saving tips from Junk Mail

fuelsavingtipsOn 5 March the fuel price again increased. The increase was substantial at 36c per litre on 93 and 95 EPU to bring the price for 1 litre of 93 EPU to R14.11 for inland drivers.

This substantial increase will not only affect our pockets with regards to our fuel consumption, it is bound to eventually play a part in the increase of food prices too, as these need to be transported between farms, distribution centres and shops.

Here are some fuel saving tips to help you save the pennies for a rainy day:

  • Check your tyre pressure
  • Service your car regularly
  • Reduce your drag by removing any unused roof fixtures
  • Use high-quality fuels
  • Turn off your aircon
  • Lighten your load
  • Avoid stop/start driving
  • Avoid excessive idling
  • Ease off the accelerator
  • Avoid short journeys
  • Change down a gear
  • Join or create a lift-club
