With the new year kicking in, it’s always best to talk about being a lot more cash clever in every aspect of our lives.
For this article, let’s delve into four money-saving driving tips that will boost your savings while you burn rubber.
Choose a greener car.
According to an analysis from Consumer Reports, operation and maintenance costs are significantly lower if you use an electric vehicle as opposed to that which runs on gas. The awesome thing about it is that you save money and reduce carbon emissions, making a superhero for the environment and your pocket!
Hunt for cheaper fuels.
If getting a greener car is out of reach for now, at least, on the short term, hunt for cheaper fuels. Don’t gas up wherever. Since prices vary among gas stations, look for where you can get the best deals. It’s a good thing that the Consumers Association of Singapore (CASE) launched a fuel price comparison website, Fuel Kaki. Hunting for cheaper fuels has become a lot easier thanks to the services of fuel price comparison sites and apps such as Fuel Kaki.
Drive at moderate speed.
As proven by good, old science, driving at moderate speed saves gas. This is because cars burn more fuel when driven too fast or too slow. Leading telematics solutions provider, Transpoco Telematics, sets the sweet spot at 45 kilometres per hour to 75 kilometres per hour. At this speed range, not only will you save on gas, you’ll have a better chance at preventing accidents as well.
Check your tyre pressure.
How exactly can you save with properly inflated tires? Well, there are two ways. According to Fuel Economy, under-inflated tires can lower gas mileage by about 0.2 percent – that’s the first. Second, properly inflated tires are safer and last longer, which means you don’t have to buy new tyres any time soon.
