As we enter Spring and edge a little closer to summer, it is important we take care of our cars. Sadly, petrol prices continue to rise, so it is essential that we incorporate new tactics if we wish to save as much money as possible. Fortunately, there are several simple strategies that can help you get more mileage out of every tank. 

Maintain Proper Tire Pressure:
The truth is that underinflated tires can decrease petrol efficiency by up to 3%. Regularly check your tire pressure and make sure they're inflated to the manufacturer's recommended levels. This small effort can lead to significant savings over time.

Lighten The Load:
Carrying unnecessary items in your vehicle can weigh it down. Remove any excess baggage, sports equipment, or tools from your trunk or backseat. The lighter your vehicle, the less petrol it will consume.

Regular Maintenance is Key:
A well-maintained vehicle is more fuel-efficient. Ensure timely oil changes, air filter replacements, and spark plug inspections. A smoothly running engine operates more efficiently, saving you money every single month.

Drive Carefully:
Rapid acceleration, sudden braking, and high speeds can greatly impact petrol efficiency. Adopt a more relaxed driving style by gradually accelerating and decelerating. Stick to the speed limit to save money on petrol.

By incorporating these petrol-saving tips, you can keep more money in your wallet while also reducing your environmental footprint. Making small adjustments to your driving routine can lead to significant long-term savings on fuel costs.
