Making Your Vehicle More Fuel Efficient

Making Your Vehicle More Fuel Efficient

 

The cost of fuel is a big talking point at the moment with many dreading when they have to visit the pump. There are many factors that have led to the rise in costs at the pump and this will mean that you will likely be looking for ways to make your vehicle more efficient so that you don’t have to visit the petrol station as often to get fuel.

Arranging a More Frequent Servicing Schedule

 

Servicing is one of the best ways to ensure that your vehicle is running as efficiently as possible. Car servicing can increase your MPG and ensures that your vehicle runs much more efficiently whilst on the road. This is because of all of the checks and replacements that are made and carried out when your vehicle is serviced. If you feel as if you are concerned about your MPG then we highly recommend that you consider a more frequent servicing schedule. There are also other aspects that you can consider which are designed to increase the MPG that you can get from your vehicle.

 

Ensure Tyres are Inflated Properly & You Have the Right Tyres

 

Tyre inflation actually has a big part to play as well for the MPG of your vehicle. Tyres lose inflation rate over time so you should ensure that they are topped up to maximise fuel efficiency. We’d recommend checks at least once a month in terms of tyre inflation. During a car service – your tyres will be checked and filled to the correct levels.

 

You may not even have the correct tyres – tyres account for around 20% of fuel consumption and new tyres will denote their fuel efficiency. If you invest in the efficiency of your tyres then you are set to save due to the high costs of fuel – so it’s a great consideration to make if you are looking for new sets of tyres.

 

Adapt in Order to Increase Fuel Efficiency

Other aspects that may seem like small changes can completely decrease your fuel use. Using air conditioning less than you have to, travelling with lighter loads, sensible driving and other common methods can reduce the number of times you have to visit the fuel pump. You may even want to consider purchasing a more fuel-efficient vehicle as this could be a great long term future investment in terms of cutting costs on fuel use.
