With fuel prices reaching a record high, the Daily Telegraph has published a guide to help drivers limit their motoring expenses.
Its tips include making sure your car tyres are properly inflated and have the right amount of tread.
The report says: “Worn or flat tyres use more fuel, so make regular pressure checks when you stop at petrol stations and keep your tyres in good condition.”
With fuel prices rising to an all-time high of 120p a litre, other tips to help motorists get more miles out of a tank include emptying your boot of any non-essential baggage as the heavier your car, the more fuel it requires to move it.
Similarly, roof racks make your car less aerodynamic, which, simply put, means it takes more fuel to move your car.
Changing the way that you use your car can ensure you are being most efficient with the fuel you buy. If your engine overheats it is less efficient, so always ensure your water and oil are at their recommended levels.
