To get the most efficiently out of your car here are a couple of tips that will help save money and keep your car it tip top condition. There are plenty of changes you can make to your driving habits that can help run your car more efficiently.
Check your tyres - Make sure your tyres are inflated to the recommended level for your car. A big part of improving your car’s fuel efficiency is reducing the amount of energy your engine needs to move it along the road. If you tyres are flat as a pancake, your engine’s is going to be working a lot more harder than if your tyres were inflated to correct sizes. For every 5% that your tyres are underinflated your fuel consumption will decrease by 1%, which means you’ll be spending more on fuel.
Lighten the load - Cut down on excess weight in your car by removing any heavy items from your boot before setting off. Extra weight in your car puts extra demands on the engine which leads to higher fuel consumption. Take any bike or roof racks when you’re not using them and remove any miscellaneous items cluttering up your boot. Having a boot full or stuff you’re not using can also affect the cars performance from acceleration to handling and braking. It’s estimated that every 30kg carried in a car reduces fuel economy by 1%. This means removing items that are cluttering up your car boot could bring real savings. Even fuel itself is hefty stuff so don’t fill the tank unless you need to.
Stick to speed limits - The faster you drive, the greater the fuel consumption. The average car will use around 10% more fuel driving at 75mph than it will drive around at 62mph. While speeding around at 80mph you can use up to 25% more fuel than driving at 70mph. Driving more slowly can bring big fuel economy benefits adopting a more leisurely pace is a great way to keep fuel costs in check. Try to avoid any rapid accelerating or braking will also one of the best ways to save fuel.
Don’t leave the engine running - If it’s safe to do so, turn your engine off when you’re caught in traffic, stopped or parked. An idling engine burns around 3.5 litres of fuel an hour so all the time we spend stuck in traffic, waiting at the lights or parked-up with our engines running can add up to a lot of fuel burned without actually going anywhere. Most newly built cars have stop-start technology, which automatically shuts off the engine when the car is stationary to save fuel. If your car doesn’t have this feature, you can still make savings by turning off the ignition yourself. It’s not realistic to turn off your engine every time you come to a standstill but if the car is going to be motionless for more than around 15 seconds, you’ll probably save fuel by turning it off.
Limit the air-con - When using your air-conditioning at low speeds can increase fuel so while not just open he windows when it's hot, but at higher speeds the effects are less noticeable you will save money if you use the air conditioning for motorway driving, having the windows open whilst driving at high speeds increases aerodynamic drag, so you’ll waste more fuel. Air-conditioning and other electrical systems place heavy demands on a car’s battery and it’s the engine that has to do the work of re-charging it. In some circumstances, using the air-con can hit fuel economy by a massive 20%.
Finally care for your car - Take care of your car by making sure it’s well-maintained and serviced regularly to ensure the engine is running as efficiently as possible. Cars are more efficient when they’re firing on all cylinders so it also pays to check you’re using the right specification of engine oil and if a top-up is needed. Details of the manufacturer’s recommended oil should be in the handbook. The oil acts as a buffer between the engine’s mechanical parts so looking after your lubricant helps keep everything running smoothly and efficiently. Check
