Fuel saving tyres: Invest now, save later
Regular car maintenance is an underestimated gas saver. Keeping your vehicle running smoothly assures not a single drop of fuel is wasted on easy-to-fix issues. Using the wrong engine oil could be one of them. Thankfully, you can easily find out which engine oil you should be using in the handbook. But there’s also steps you can take without getting service involved. And it only costs you a few minutes every few gas stops.
Before you head out to fill up petrol, make sure your tyres are still cool. Once refuelled, stop at the pressure gauge and check your tyre pressure. This is beneficial to your general driving safety and what’s more, it can turn any tyre set into fuel-saving tyres. To truly benefit from this, ensure an ideal tyre pressure. In our experience, this may be between 0.3 to 0.5 bar more than defined on the sticker in the driver’s side door frame. Do make sure that you do not exceed the recommended maximum tyre pressure (related to a fully loaded car) also found on the sticker.
