Best 7 Money-Saving Driving Tips

Best 7 Money-Saving Driving Tips

Owning a car comes at a cost. You will need to fuel the vehicle regularly, service it, replace parts, among other things. However, there are several ways you can save money as a driver in Canada.

1. Accelerate Gently

It is important to understand that the harder you accelerate, the more fuel will be used. While driving in town, you can use minimal fuel by easing on the accelerator pedal slowly or gently.

2. Maintain A Steady Speed

When your speed keeps changing up and down while travelling, your vehicle is bound to use more fuel than usual. Studies have indicated that varying a vehicle's speed up and down between 70 and 80 kilometres can increase fuel consumption by at least 20 percent.

3. Get A Tune-Up

Getting stuck in the middle of a journey is probably the most frustrating thing anyone can experience. Things can even get worse if there's no mechanic around. That's why it is important to have a tune-up where a mechanic checks everything, including fluids, tires, battery and so on, to ensure that nothing goes wrong during your journey.

4. Avoid Speeding

Most vans, pickup trucks, and cars are most fuel-efficient when travelling at a speed of between 50 and 80 kilometres per hour.

5. Turn Down The A/C

Air conditioning is an important feature during summer. But this means your vehicle will use more fuel to keep the A/C running. While in town, using the A/C will negatively affect your fuel economy while it's more beneficial on the highway since the air drag from open windows outweighs having the A/C on.

6. Use Cruise Control

It is best to use cruise control to save on fuel when driving on a highway since it maintains a constant driving speed.

7. Don't Carry Unnecessary Weight

Remove unnecessary items from your vehicle since the additional weight requires more fuel during drives.

Tire Rotation

Tire rotation is important because it makes your driving comfortable and extends your tires' lifespan. Visit our Service Centre today for all your tire needs.
