The average cost of a litre of unleaded petrol in the UK is now 132.7p, while diesel tops the charts at an average of 138.8p per litre (source www.whatgas.com).
Many of us are paying even more than these average prices and rising fuel costs have become a serious problem for many motorists, especially those living in rural areas who have no way of getting around except by car.
To help regular motorists cut their fuel costs, we’ve put together a selection of information and tips aimed at helping you measure and reduce your fuel consumption:
- Reduce your fuel consumption with our fuel-saving driving tips
- Find the cheapest fuel prices in your area
- Learn how to calculate your car’s mpg so you can monitor it for improvement
- Plan your journeys and combine multiple errands into one trip
- Walk instead of driving for short journeys – cars use more fuel when they are cold
- Make sure your tyres are correctly inflated and in good condition – under-inflated tyres increase fuel consumption and are more likely to get punctures
If you’ve got any fuel-saving tips, why not share them? Email us with your tips and we’ll publish them on the SimpleMotoring.co.uk blog so that everyone can benefit.
