Getting the Most Miles From Your Car

Getting the Most Miles From Your Car

Fuel is expensive, and it only ever increasing in price!  There are a number of things we can do to make sure we are getting the most miles from our fill ups, so follow these tips if you want to see some savings at the pumps!

Firstly, it is important to make sure your tyres are pumped up correctly.  Check in your manual, and it will often say what the pressure should be for different passenger numbers.  The tyre pressure will vary depending on how many people regularly travel in your car, and also heavy luggage.  Tyres at the wrong pressure can end up making you use more fuel than you need.

Next, if you do a lot of driving, it is sometimes worth using the premium fuels at the pumps.  This may seem more expensive at the outset, but in reality they contain fewer contaminates so the car can burn through the fuel more efficiently without getting stuck on particles of rubbish.
