Keen to Cut Your Petrol Bills? Here’s How!

The price of petrol at the moment is enough to make anyone flinch at the pump. Whether you just want to save money, or are more concerned about the environment, there are some things you can do to cut down on the amount you spend on filling up the tank without cutting back on the amount you drive.

Here are a few simple tips that anyone can follow. They might seem like small changes, but if you stick to them, you’ll notice your petrol bills going down.

1. Find the cheapest place to buy petrol and forward plan to fill up there. Many of us try to buy petrol at cheaper garages, but make sure you do it every time. Larger supermarkets often have the lowest prices.

2. Drive slower on the motorway. You might not think that driving at 70mph instead of 80mph will make a difference, you save in excess of £10 depending on the length of your journey.

3. Empty your boot of things you don’t need. If you car is very heavy, you will be paying more in fuel to move it.

4. Drive in as higher a gear as possible! This will mean your engine will run more efficiently and you will save some cash today!
