How to easily use 10% less fuel without having to drive as slowly as a sloth


122 days ago

It’s quite easy to reduce your fuel consumption by 10%, which means every 10th tank is free.

If you manage a drop of 20% then every fifth tank is free.

Pippa Hudson asked motoring journalist Ciro de Siena for advice.

How to (easily) use 10% less fuel:

  • Service your car regularly. This will ensure it runs as efficiently as possible (all filters are clean, spark plugs are operating properly, etc.)

  • Check your wheel alignment, balancing and tyre pressure.

  • Windows up or windows down? At highway speeds – because of aerodynamics - it’s more efficient to use the air conditioner. At lower speeds, it’s better to roll down a window.

  • Keep momentum. Don’t use the brakes and accelerator too often; try to anticipate the traffic ahead.

For more detail, listen to the interview in the audio below [skip to 5:18].
