In the excitement of buying a new car, it is easy to forget all the expenses that come along with owning a car. In addition to the monthly repayment installments there are the maintenance costs to think about as well as insurance and fuel costs. While it is ill advised to hold back on maintenance costs and insurance (you want the best comprehensive cover available) there are ways to get more bang out of your buck with the following 5 fuel saving tips for a start:

Build Good Driving Habits

Good driving behavior is one of the best ways to save on fuel consumption. Keep to speed limit regulations. The faster you drive, the higher the aerodynamic drive, and the more fuel you use. By driving the appropriate speed on city roads eliminates unnecessary hard breaking and encourages slow acceleration – both of which save fuel usage.

Maintain your Vehicle Regularly

Clogged air filters, low oil, and coolant levels and spark plugs needing replacing are common contributors to extra fuel being consumed. Keeping to maintenance schedules saves on fuel costs.

Check for Overall Fuel Efficiency of the Car you are Interested In

Car manufacturers rival each other in producing vehicles that offer great fuel efficiency. When shopping around for your new car be sure to put fuel efficiency ratings on your list of requirements.

Maintain Recommended Tire Pressure

There is a correlation between correct tire pressure and fuel usage. Underinflated tire pressure increases fuel consumption, so be sure yours are always inflated correctly to avoid any unnecessary loss of efficiency.

Remove Unnecessary Weight from the Vehicle

Like high speed levels excess weight affects the aerodynamics and increases fuel usage. Remove gym bags, golf clubs, roof racks and other heavy items when not needed.
