Our Top 10 Fuel Saving Tips
Dramatically improve your MPG by following these fuel saving tips on a daily basis; challenge yourself to constantly improve. You will be amazed at what you can save.
1. Slow Down
One of the best ways to save fuel is to simply reduce your speed.
2. Careful Braking
Every time you brake, you convert fuel that you have paid for into heat!
Plan ahead, watch for traffic; choose the best route, not always the shortest.
4. Use Gravity
On a modern vehicle it uses no fuel when your foot is off the accelerator, so take advantage of downhill runs, or approaching a junction; it’s completely free motoring!
5. Accelerate With Care
Accelerate smoothly and gently, maintain a constant speed and keep gear changes to a minimum.
6. Top Gear
Get into top gear as soon as possible, without labouring the engine as each gear down can cost up to 20% fuel.
7. Switch The Air-con
Off Up to 10% fuel saving
8. Keep It Serviced
Under-inflated tyres are one of the most commonly ignored causes of poor MPG.•A dirty air filter restricts the flow of air into the engine, which harms performance and economy. Use a quality oil.
9. Reduce Weight
Always remove your roof rack or roof box as soon as you are finished with them, the extra drag they cause will have a negative effect on your fuel economy. Only keep things in your car you’re likely to need, having a boot full of junk reduces your fuel economy too.
10. Have a Remap
With a diesel engineed vehicle you can significantly improve fuel consumption by having a remap. But don’t take our word for it, try it for 30-days under our no quibble money-back guarantee.
Save Fuel With A Quantum ReMap™ Don’t believe in outlandish fuel saving claims, these simply won’t happen! Fact is that no one has a miracle cure or gadget to save both your pocket and the planet, BUT when you have a Quantum Green™ Remap you can experience substantial fuel savings and these days, every little really does help. Realistically, most turbo-diesel vehicles can see a 10-15% fuel saving from the remap alone. BUT, when combined with a change in driving style to take full advantage of the extra torque and driveability, then much more is possible.
A company car travelling 30,000 miles pa averaging 50mpg with a fuel cost of £1.15 per litre will spend £3105 on diesel. A modest 10% improvement would save £310.50 per year, almost £1000 over a 3 year lease. Add in the cost of an ECU Remap at £250 and you can see it will pay for itself in the first year.
