There are many ways in which you can decrease the amount of fuel used for driving your car. First of all, you should rethink the way in which you are driving your car in the first place. Here are some suggestions to consider.
Plan your trip properly
Undeniably, if you are not sure about the roadmap for your trip, you risking to increase the mileage. That is why, before you are going to an unknown destination, it is highly recommended to think about the road you are going to take.
Even if you understand where you are heading very well, it is still important to make sure the road is free from traffic jams. Spending time in traffic jams with your engine working can increase the fuel consumption. Undeniably, it is not always possible to predict traffic jams, however, there are many situations in which you can be sure there will be some traffic jams.
Avoid rapid speeding up your vehicle
The minimum fuel consumption happens when you are driving your car with a steady speed. Again, this is not possible in the cities where you have many obstacles on your way requiring reducing the speed and then increasing it rapidly. Yet, you can at least limit such actions to the moments when they are required and not to take them when there is no such a necessity.
Anytime you would like to show off driving your car fast think about how much fuel you will lose.
Do not use electronic devices you do need
No matter what these devices are, whether they are an air conditioner or a car heater, it is not that you need them all of the time. Whenever it is possible to make do without the work of these devices as well as anything else attached to your car, you can do it and the amount of fuel you will have to spend will be reduced.
Minimise the aerodynamic resistance of your vehicle
Any time there is any resistance from the side of your car, it decreases the speed making it somewhat more difficult to drive a car.
There are many things that can boost such a resistance, albeit, you can take care of the majority of them.
One of the things you can do is avoiding driving a car with heavy luggage inside when it is not needed. When your car is heavier, it obviously requires more power to speed up and consumes more fuel.
The next think you should do is to take off your roof luggage compartment when you so do not use it. This large item on the top of a vehicle increases the area of the car that goes against the air flow increasing its resistance.
Finally, the same rule is applies to open windows. When there is no such a necessity, keep them closed.
Do not park your car exposed to the sun
Parking a car in the sun is generally a rather bad idea, yet it, is also specifically bad for the fuel stored inside your vehicle. It increases vaporisation and will inevitably make you to lose more fuel than needed.
