With Diesel and Petrol prices bridging $3.15 and $3.40 per litre, try these tips for reducing your fuel costs and improving your vehicle’s fuel efficiency!
Make the Switch to a Lighter Vehicle
Consider switching to a lighter van.
he popular VW Caddy weighs 2,240kg while the ever-popular Nissan NV200 only weighs 2,070kg.
That’s an astonishing 170kg difference in weight.
Maintain Your Tyre’s Pressure
Under-inflated tyres increase your vehicle’s drag, which increases fuel consumption.
Refer to the vehicle manufacturer’s spec on the recommended tyre pressure ratings usually located on the driver-side, door panel.
Watch How You Brake
Excessive braking wears out your vehicle brake pads and requires unnecessary acceleration to narrow the distance.
Instead, watch your driving behaviour, brake less, go easy on the accelerator and learn to cruise in neutral.
Cut Your Fuel Costs with Electric Vehicle (EV)
A fully charged Opel Vivaro-e will only cost you less than $35 per full charge and achieve a mileage of 330km per charge.
