Hands up who wants to save petrol?

Here’s some tips you may not have considered!

With petrol one of the largest costs of running your vehicle, any small savings soon adds up to big savings!

Most people think that the effort required to save fuel to a significant level is beyond them. However, there are a number of small things you can do to reduce your fuel consumption that will soon add up, including
• Keeping your tyres inflated at the right rate,
• Reducing weight in your boot,
• Turn air conditioning off

These are three of the most well-known tips to help reduce your fuel bill. However we want to give you more.

Something you may not have considered

If you use a fuel card… have you looked at your fuel card agreement? With higher margins in the fuel market, you may be able to negotiate a better deal – or shop around for cheaper prices.

Here’s your potential for bigger fuel savings

No fuel card? No worries. The biggest fuel saving tip we can give you is all about your style. Yep – we love style and if you have the right style, you’ll start saving!

Most people are unaware that their driving style could be costing them extra. Poor drivers increase fuel consumption by 21%, compared to average drivers; and by 31% when compared to good drivers. This means, if you speed up, slow down, zoom around, brake suddenly, accelerate hard – you’re costing yourself money in fuel [and wear and tear].

To enhance your style and fuel saving capacity, complete an advanced drivers training course. Not only will it make you safer on the roads, but your new driving skills could save you a lot of money every week at the pump. Many companies are doing this for their fleet drivers, and savings are racking up on more than just fuel!
