Regular car usage brings significant fuel expenses. Moreover, there is a direct connection between mileage and the frequency of maintenance services.
We’ve talked to cars experts and put up together 8 life hacks that will help you to cut not only fuel but also maintenance costs.
1. Don’t put the pedal to the metal
One sees a lot of drivers on the roads who just love to slam on the acceleration.
But in driving school, we were told that acceleration and braking should be done smoothly because it guarantees reduced fuel consumption.
When you accelerate sharply, it makes your car consume more energy, thus fuel consumption also increases.
2. Use cruise control on the highway
Your vehicle will consume much less fuel if you follow speed limits and use cruise control rather than accelerating on each open road section.
To cope with wind drag, your car has to increase engine speed, increasing fuel consumption.
