Is This The Best Way To Fill Up?

To save fuel and to get the best possible consumption from your car you need to do a few simple things. Trying to fill up to the brim of the fuel tank is not the answer unless you are smuggling subsidised fuel across the causeway.


Get your vehicle serviced regularly for best efficiency and always use the right specification of engine oil. You should also check your tyre pressures regularly and before long journeys – under-inflated tyres can cause you to use up to 2% more fuel.

Accelerate gently

The harder you accelerate, the more fuel you consume. To maximise your fuel efficiency, imagine that there’s an egg under your pedal and an open cup of coffee on your dashboard  you don’t want to break the shell or spill the drink!

Use your gears wisely

Don’t torture your vehicle’s engine by holding on to one gear for too long.

Maintain a steady speed

Unintentional dips in speed and sudden bursts of acceleration to keep pace take a toll on your fuel tank and your wallet.

Use your air-conditioner wisely

At low speeds, your air-con can increases fuel consumption by as much as 20%, so try opening the windows when you’re cruising around town.
