Be Wiser Insurance

While many motoring news outlets have been reporting that cheaper, smaller engines aren't always as efficient as larger, more expensive ones – Be Wiser would like to point out there are less expensive ways of lowering your fuel consumption.

And some of them are embarrassingly simple.

Mark Bower-Dyke, Chairman of Be Wiser Insurance, commented:

"Your car's engine might be the thing drinking the petrol – but let's not forget why it's thirsty in the first place! Basic maintenance of the car can make all the difference to fuel consumption and save you money at the pump."

One of the easiest ways to improve your fuel consumption is to ensure your tyres are inflated correctly.

Fuel consumption reduces dramatically with increased friction - and that's exactly what your tyres provide - the biggest source of friction.

Other simple ways to improve fuel economy include ensuring the car isn't loaded up all the time – so don't forget to take the golf clubs out of the boot!

Mark Bower-Dyke continues:

"Everything adds up – a combination of a loaded up car with soft tyres is always going to have a negative effect on fuel economy, regardless of how efficient you engine is in the first place!"
