Clear the boot! 

Many of us become custom to keeping lots of unecessary items in our car, especially the boot. This is the best time to have a clear out and lighten the load of the car to make the most out of your fuel.

Check your type pressure! 

Having the correct tyre pressure for your vehicle is critical to maintaining efficiency when it comes to getting the most out of your fuel. Underinflated tyres reduce road grip, handling, and braking distance while also consuming more fuel. So, check what tyre pressure is required for your tyres and save money on fuel and increase the life spam of your tyres!

Be sure to use a SatNav! 

When travelling to a new location, make sure to plan your route ahead of time. Most SatNavs and apps now provide you with the quickest and best routes to take, as well as vital information along the way if necessary. This will keep you from losing your way and wasting fuel getting back on route.
