Azania spoke to technical editor at CAR Magazine, Nicol Louw to find out how you can stretch your tank of petrol.
If you talk about fuel efficiency, you need to make sure that your car is completely serviced because if it is serviced, the engine will run efficiently. It will use the fuel better and you will get much more value for your money.— Nicol Louw, Technical Editor at CAR Magazine
Your tyre pressure is very important, if your tyre pressure is low there is more resistance to driving and you use more fuel.— Nicol Louw, Technical Editor at CAR Magazine
Aerodynamics play a big role. If you have any of these roof racks on your car, take them off if you are not using them. If you have any extra weight in your car, remove that.— Nicol Louw, Technical Editor at CAR Magazine
If you lower your speed by 10km per hour your will save a lot of fuel. Steady driving at a lower speed, that is the best for fuel consumption.— Nicol Louw, Technical Editor at CAR Magazine
