With Christmas fast approaching its a great time to cut back on expenditure one way of doing this is to reduce your fuel costs. Below I have provide a few tips on how to reduce your fuel costs.
Firstly hire a brand new Car from Easirent Preston, by driving a new vehicle you will get the best miles per gallon a vehicle can offer. Here at Easirent Preston we can help advise the best size vehicle for your travels. Tyre Pressures – we check tyre pressures before each hire as incorrectly inflated tyres could have a negative effect on fuel economy. Turn off the Air con in the vehicle if not needed as it can have a negative effect on fuel economy, and even more so at lower speeds. Talking about speed when on the motorway keep your speed at 70mph or slower as driving above 70mph causes the engine to work harder and rev more which also consumes more fuel. The department of Transport figures show that driving at 80mph can use up to 25% more fuel than driving at 70mph.
If you have a roof rack fitted that you are not using on your own car it may be a good idea to remove it as it is only adding additional weight to your vehicle. Regular maintenance and servicing improves the efficiency of your vehicle which should also help improve fuel consumption.
