Learn how you can save on fuel!
Driving Lessons in Ballymena
With fuel prices continually on the rise a car is now more expensive to run than ever before.We can do little about rising fuel costs but there's a lot we can do to cut down on our own fuel consumption! There's an old saying "look after the pennies and the pounds will look after themselves" that's what eco friendly driving is all about. A few adjustments here and there can soon mount up to a considerable saving, especially over time!
Before you drive!
Simple things like checking the condition of your tyres and ensuring that they're inflated to the correct pressures or, removing a roof rack that's not being used will not only, help reduce drag and improve fuel consumption, but will also reduce the amount of harmful emissions your car exhausts into the atmosphere.
The way you drive!
I often hear people complaining that their car is hard on fuel when they haven't considered that low miles per gallon might be more to do with how they actually drive the car, than the car itself! Short journeys, harsh acceleration, heavy braking, speeding, over revving the engine ...all contribute to higher fuel consumption!
For example: when driving in town, many drivers will think little about racing off from traffic lights only to brake hard for the next set of lights, or queue of traffic that may only be a short distance ahead! SHORT BURSTS! + HEAVY BRAKING! = MORE FUEL USED!
You can save on fuel by developing the good habit of: LOOKING AND THINKING WELL AHEAD! - PLANNING! - DRIVING ACCORDINGLY!
Learning to drive isn't just about getting to grips with the handling of a car! More importantly, it's about developing good habits and attitudes that will equip you for a lifetime of safe and happy motoring!
These are just some examples of how you could save on fuel by changing the way you drive and maintain your car.
