Fuel prices remain volatile and prices of goods remain climbing at a steady rate. This is an age when everyone is concerned about fuel economy. Read on see our ideas on how to save fuel while still being able to enjoy your Citroen.
1. Set the car tires to the proper inflation. Properly inflated tires can reduce fuel consumption by up to 3%. Your tires also lose about 1 PSI per month, and when the tires are cold, their pressure will decrease due to the thermal contraction of the air. It is recommended to check tires at least monthly, preferably weekly. Having properly inflated tires will also help you avoid uneven wear on the tread.
2. Lighten your load. If you use your trunk as a storage space for heavy things, find another place for them. An extra 50 kilograms increases fuel consumption by 1-2%.
3. Slow down. The faster you move, the harder your engine has to work to push through the wind resistance. Speeding can reduce fuel efficiency by up to 33%.
We've tried these tips and we can vouch for each one of them. Happy saving!
