In our last write-up, we discussed about
a few points in regards to how the car owners can make the best use of car fuel.
Here are more tips in this regard.
Never fill your tank full
If your car tank is filled to the brim, it
means a large space is getting filled up with extra weight. You can reduce the
weight by leaving ½ or ¾ of your car tank empty, thereby ensuring improved
efficiency on your fuel use.
Never Clutter your car
Many car owners carry unnecessary items
in their car. If you don’t require any item, remove it from your cabin or boot.
It will make your car lighter. A light-weight car has to work less hard to
accelerate and that saves expenses on fuel.
Fill up at night
This is not an urban myth as many of you
believe. Temperature falls down at night and when it’s cold, the car owners get
more fuel (though slightly) subject to their spending.
Use premium quality fuel
Top-notch quality fuel is expensive;
there is no doubt about it. However, using premium fuel instead of its standard
alternative on regular basis will save your expenses in a long run despite more
investment at a time. In accordance with AA, to ensure optimum fuel efficiency
of your car engine, use 3 tanks of premium quality fuel successively before
switching back to standard variety.
Drive with efficiency
It is very much important to drive your
car with high efficiency as that ensures optimum use of car fuel. Followings
are some points of note to ensure efficient driving of your car:
Use of correct gears
Always use the gear which is most
fuel-efficient for the speed the car is being driven at. When you keep your car
at its possible peak revs, it enhances efficiency of fuel and also ensures a
smooth ride.
Accelerate gradually

Instead of accelerating all on a sudden,
raise speed step by step with low revs as less power will save on your car’s
fuel feed. On other hand, accelerating hard results into high rate of fuel flow
in order to pick up car speed instantly and that reduces fuel efficiency.
