First, keep your engine properly tuned up. Regular maintenance and tune-ups will help ensure that your engine is running at its most efficient level, which will help you save money on fuel.
Second, make sure your tires are properly inflated. Underinflated tires can cause your car to use more fuel than necessary.
Third, use the recommended grade of motor oil for your vehicle. Using the wrong type of oil can reduce the efficiency of your engine and cost you more in fuel costs.
Scheduling your transportation in advance to grouping your errands into one drive can be a game changer. List your errands and the places you have to visit and get it done in one go!
If you commute to work you can even carpooling with co-workers so each one of you gets one or two drives per week and you share the cost. The same applies with kid’s lessons. You can arrange with neighbors to share the commute during the week which is a win – win for everyone.
In times of financial difficulties imagination and a genuine community approach can save the day!
