Helpful Tips on Saving Fuel

Try as you might to avoid fuel emergencies, there may come a time when you need to call on onsite fuel services to replenish your fuel supply. Of course, you’d want to maximize your fuel—make the most of every drop. Fortunately, there are ways you can save on fuel, and all these depend on how you use your vehicle(s).

Avoid Bad Driving Habits

Do you tend to speed up when driving or let your engine idle for more than three minutes? Both habits negatively affect your fuel efficiency and shortens the service life of your engine, making it more prone to damage. Avoiding these habits can improve your engine’s fuel efficiency.

Change Oil Regularly

It’s recommended to have your oil changed every three months or after you’ve driven the vehicle for more than 5,000 km. Not only will you gain better fuel efficiency, but you’re actually doing the environment a favor, especially when you use bio-based transmission oils.

Check the Tire Pressure

Not only does an under-inflated tire cause premature wear and tear, but it also increases fuel consumption, wasting more fuel that you could’ve instead saved for future use. For both fuel efficiency and safety reasons, remember to regularly check your vehicle’s tires and make sure that they’re in tiptop shape.

Drive Smartly and Only When Necessary

If you can manage to go to your destination without driving, or if you can combine several errands in just one trip, you can definitely save more on fuel.
