Fuel prices are on the rise again but saving fuel in your car doesn’t have to mean spending big on a super-economical hybrid or a zero emissions electric vehicle. You can instantly improve your current car’s fuel economy by as much as 10% with these green driving tips.
Fuel is expensive stuff and getting costlier but most motorists know that already. The filling station price boards and those swirling numbers on the fuel pumps serve as regular painful reminders of the huge wads of cash we’re all incinerating in our cars.
But that’s not even the half of it. Burning petrol and diesel costs the planet as well. The more we burn, the more CO2 is pumped into the atmosphere in combination with a cocktail of other harmful emissions that do nobody much good.
The obvious answer to the cost of fuel, both on our pockets and the environment, is to use less of it. Here are our top tips on how to save fuel simply and affordably. Let us know how you get on in the comments section below.
Our Top 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.

2. Careful Braking

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

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. 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.
10. 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
However, use the extra power, drive hard and convert all the
extra power into acceleration or higher speed and savings
will be minimal – however you will have fun!
