Motoring Tip No. 2

Tip #2:

What is the funnest thing in your boot?

Do you know anyone who is a car hoarder?

Lose Unnecessary Weight

Your vehicle has to cope with many things that effect it’s fuel efficiency from tyre grip to general maintenance. Having unnecessary weight in your vehicle wastes fuel, can ncrease maintenance requirements from wear and tear over time and also can effect handling, particularly in all cases during acceleration. If there is heavy stuff in your boot you don’t need to leave it at home. Losing 100 pounds (45 kg) will improve economy by around 2%. In fact the push to make cars lighter is playing a leading role in improving fuel economy in new cars. Empty that boot.
