Saving on Fuel

Saving on fuel

I can safely say diesel car is saving me a lot of money.  I just renew my car tax for the year and it only cost £20, where as previous car a Nissan Mica cost £110 for the year.
Also the Micra cost £50 a week for petrol, where as my new Citroen costs £30 per week. Happy days.
 
Here another fuel saving tip only have your roof rack on the car if its needed and make sure you don't carry unnecessary weight in your boot as both can cause you to use more fuel.

Fuel Saving Tips

Another way to save on fuel is to make sure that your tyres are at the correct tyre pressures. In very cold weather your tyre pressure will reduce because of the cold causing more tyre contact with the road, not only wears your tyres down on the outer rim, but as the tyre has more contact with the road, will cause the car to use more fuel to frive it along. Under inflated tyres will also cause your braking to change. Does anyone know if the braking distance is longer or shorter?
 

Saving on fuel

Just recently on the the News they are saying that once again the price of fuel was increasing. Did you know you can save on fuel just by sticking to the speed limits? When I drive the car my fuel consumption is 52-54 mpg. When I my husband drives the car the fuel consumption is 46mpg. My fuel consumption is better because I stick to the speed limits and added bonus is I'm not likely to get a speeding ticket!
