Drivers told to make three simple changes to slash fuel consumption by 10 percent


RAC Fuel Watch shows that petrol, diesel and super unleaded are all falling in price, although they are still near record levels. Despite this, many drivers are still looking for alternative options to boost their fuel efficiency and reduce their costs.

The latest data from the motoring organisation shows a litre of unleaded to be 185.05p, with diesel dropping massively to just 194.30p.

Drivers using super unleaded petrol will also see a massive drop in price when reaching the forecourts.

On average it now costs 197.67p per litre for super unleaded, a far cry from petrol levels seen earlier this month when prices were above £2 a litre.

Howard, a driving instructor at How 2 Drive, urged motorists to use three simple steps to improve their fuel economy.

Check the weight

Howard also highlighted the impact that weight has on the car.

He said: “Just check what’s in your boot because if you’re carrying around extra weight that’s going to slow you down and cost you more fuel.

“If you’ve got a roof rack, remove your roof bars because that’s just going to create drag.

“With your tyres, inflate your tyres to the recommended tyre pressures because that is going to make you more fuel efficient.”
