FUEL SAVING TIPS TO REDUCE CONSUMPTION ON YOUR CITROEN
Fuel prices in South Africa are at a record high, so CMH Citroen East Rand has a few tips every driver should know to reduce the damage to their bank accounts.
CMH Citroen East Rand can guarantee that a well-maintained engine can help you improve your fuel efficiency. That means that you should follow your manufacturer’s recommendations for servicing your car at regular intervals when your car is due for a service or needs repairs.
Thankfully CMH Citroen East Rand has several basic vehicle maintenance procedures that you can perform that will immediately increase your fuel efficiency.
Apply steady pressure to your car’s accelerator pedal. Excessive pressure results in reduced gas mileage and poor fuel consumption.
Maintain optimal speed
The optimal travelling speed for every make and model vehicle is different. The faster you drive, the worse your gas mileage and fuel consumption will be.
Reduce air conditioning
Consider using the AC in moderation when possible. Alternatively, your vehicle’s regular fan settings could provide you with ventilation.
Replace dirty air filters
Dirty air filters force your engine to work much harder than it has to, resulting in worse fuel economy.
Make sure that your tyres are inflated. If your car is fitted with TPMS (tyre pressure monitor system) you might think that your tyre pressure warning light will come on if your tyres are deflated. Too much pressure may give you a slight increase in efficiency, but also puts your tires under a higher strain and increases their chances of blowing.
