With the cost of motoring on the rise everyone is looking for ways to cut the expense of hitting the roads.
To start with pumping up your tyres to the correct level can bring your fuel bill down by up to 2 per cent, according to the Guardian newspaper.
Around 50 per cent of tyres on the road are under-inflated research shows, yet it only takes a few minutes to check the pressure level once a week.
And an added bonus of having properly inflated tyres is that they reduced carbon emissions, which means you’re on your way to helping the environment.
Another top tip for cutting down on fuel bills include cooling your passion for air conditioning, which uses up to 25 per cent more fuel, according to the National Energy Foundation.
Other fuel-saving economies are maintaining your engine and having clean air filters; drive smoothly and consistently using higher gears; get rid of unnecessary baggage (roof racks, golf clubs, etc) and stick to the speed limit (driving at 85mpg uses approximately 25 per cent more fuel than at 70mph.
