How to Save Petrol

Reduce your speed. The higher the speed, the higher the fuel consumption. Slow down, relax, and enjoy the ride. Driving at a moderate speed will always help save fuel.

    Check tyre pressure. Check your tyre pressure regularly. Tyres lose pressure over time (about 1 psi per month) due to temperature and other factors. Tyres with lower pressure will have more rolling resistance resulting in increased fuel consumption.

    Filling fuel: The more fuel you have in your tank, the less air occupying capacity it will have in the empty space. Petrol evaporates very fast. While filling up fuel, do not squeeze the trigger of the nozzle in a fast mode. If you are pumping on a fast rate, some of the liquid that goes to your tank will become vapor.

    Accelerate with moderation. If you accelerate speedily and often, the less fuel you save. You should drive with required moderate speed and use your brakes less often to save fuel. Slow speed and attention to regular bumps will serve the purpose.

    Use stock tyre. Before changing your tyre to the modern style thick ones, think again. The more the width, the higher the rolling resistance offered and higher the fuel consumption.
