Drive down those car expenses!

Owning a car is expensive. However, it’s possible to cut costs when it comes to travelling and car care. Simple hacks can save money on how much you spend. See our top three tips:

  • Excess weight wastes fuel. Take out any heavy equipment in the boot or anything else you may have weighing down your car, as losing 45kg can improve fuel economy.
  • Looking after your car will have a positive impact on its fuel consumption. Getting it serviced regularly and ensuring everything is properly tuned can improve the miles per gallon, while it is important that tyres are properly inflated and the correct oil is used. These are easy maintenance tasks and help your car run smoothly and as efficiently as possible.
  • Accelerating and braking smoothly and going through the gears will also improve fuel consumption. Aggressive driving such as quick accelerations and braking require more power. Once a vehicle is travelling at over 50mph, fuel economy drops significantly.
