Tips To Improve Your Fuel Consumption
Hitting the road for a fun trip? Part of the planning is allocating budget for fuel. With fluctuating petrol costs, it’s getting hard to keep your tank full. But it’s important to make sure you have enough fuel to keep your vehicle running. Running out of fuel in the middle of the road can be a huge inconvenience, after all.
However, if you do use up your fuel reserves during a trip, you don’t have to worry! You can call for road assistance in WA to get you out this bind. Allout Towing will quickly dispatch a properly equipped tow truck to bring your vehicle to a safe place. Our team is ready 24/7 to assist with towing needs all around Perth.
Additionally, there are tips you can follow to improve your car’s fuel consumption, saving you not only some fuel but also your money.
Keep your tyres properly inflated.
When your tyres are low on air, they need more engine power to make them roll, meaning more fuel is consumed. Keeping your tyres properly inflated might sound like it’s not much, but it actually helps a lot in extending your mileage. Check your car’s tyre pressure label and stick to it. Most cars have the same tyre pressure rating for all four wheels, though some have different ratings for the front and rear wheels.
Keep a pressure gauge in your glove box too and make a habit out of checking your tyre pressure before each trip, especially during cold weather or if you haven’t used your car in a while.
Take it easy on the pedal.
Sometimes, you’d want to just unleash your inner adrenaline junkie by stepping hard into the pedal and going as fast as your vehicle could go. Though this sounds fun, it won’t be cool for your fuel levels at all. Accelerating too much can eat up your fuel faster and leave you dry quicker. Focus instead on keeping your car steady. Use the accelerator as gently as possible; try imagining the pedal as an egg that you must not crack to do this.
Drive where you can keep an even speed.
Long drives often make you tired of having your feet on the pedals. It’s why it’s more relaxing to drive in areas where you can keep an even speed, allowing you to turn cruise control. Maintaining a steady speed over long durations can help you reduce fuel consumption.
