How To Save Fuel

One of the worst things to see when driving is the fuel light come on, especially if you’ve not long filled up! Here at Britannia, we want to make sure that you are getting the most out of your experience driving. Here are a few tips to save fuel;

  • Maintain your vehicle – regular servicing and maintenance on your car can increase the efficiency of it, as well as the performance. Better performance is vital for fuel economy.
  • Keep your momentum – Slowing down only to speed up uses more fuel than keeping to a set speed. If possible, try to keep to a set speed to make sure that you don’t burn up more fuel than you need to.
  • Watch your weight – The more weight that’s in the car can increase performance, and therefore increase the fuel needed to get from A to B. If you’re driving within an urban environment, try to keep your tank around half full. A lighter load of fuel means less fuel used.

There are plenty other ways to save on fuel including only driving where needed, planning your route, and keeping your tyre pressure up, but for now, safe driving from Britannia!
