Nowadays fuel consumption is one of the most important concerns for every car user. As the petrol and diesel prices hike at a record number, it becomes very difficult to bear such fuel expenses. Here we are trying to share some effective tips so that you can decrease fuel consumption.

Maintain the optimum tyre pressure

The optimum tyre pressure is very important to keep the right speed of your car.

So, it is wise to check your tyre pressure regularly to maintain the optimum pressure of the car’s tyre. Try to check it at least once per month.

Use your cruise control properly

When you use your cruise control regularly, the fuel consumption will increase. Because cruise control is suitable on motorways or roads with a constant speed. While driving in a hilly area, you would take your foot off the accelerator to maintain a constant speed. Driving in this may increase the rate of fuel consumption.
