We all like to make savings, especially when it only requires a bit of thought and very little effort, which is why the Swinton insurance company has put together a great little infographic offering 10 tips to help drive down the cost of motoring.
Not surprisingly, a lot of emphasis is placed on your tyres. First of all you must make sure you keep your tyres correctly inflated, not only does this mean safer motoring, it could also save you up to 5% per cent in fuel costs too.
Swinton also suggest motorists might want to consider fitting a set of Goodyear EfficientGrip tyres, featuring FuelSaving Technology which signifiancly reduces rolling resistance. This means that less of the energy from your engine is wasted and therefore less fuel is consumed.
etyres supply and fit a wide range of tyres which offer fantastic fuel efficiency, including the Goodyear EfficientGrip, at highly competitive prices. Customers also benefit from etyres mobile service which means they can have their new tyres fitted at a time and location of their choice, whether they are at home or work.
Other helpful money-saving tips offered to motorists by Swinton insurance include:
Getting into the right gear – when you are cruising at a steady speed, it is best to drive in the highest gear possible to improve fuel efficiency
Don’t fill up – filling your tank right to the top reduces fuel economy, as every litre of petrol you add weighs 0.7kg.
Switch off your engine – leaving your engine running for longer than 10 seconds uses more fuel than restarting it, so switch off your engine and stop burning money. In modern cars make sure you use the start-stop feature.
