5 tips to cut the costs of your fuel billWith fuel prices set to increase, why not follow Payplan’s money saving tips to help reduce your petrol or diesel costs.
1. Find the cheapest petrol near youYou can find the cheapest petrol and diesel prices nearest to where you live by visiting www.petrolprices.com.
2. Use a customer loyalty cardMany supermarkets offer the lowest prices in petrol and diesel. In the last couple of days ASDA has vowed to keep it’s petrol price at 111.9p until the bank holiday. Some supermarkets allow you to save even more if you own one of their customer loyalty cards, which are free to open. The more you spend, and the more points you collect, the more you can save. The points can be claimed back in a number of ways, with money-off vouchers to savings on a family day out – you would need to check each store’s terms!
3. Make your car more efficientAny access weight adds to your fuel price, so remove any excess clutter you have been storing. For example, remove bike racks if they are not going to be used. Additionally, if your tyres are not correctly inflated, up to 2% can be added to your fuel bill.
4. Want to cool off?Before you turn the air conditioning on, think about opening a window or two. Turning off the air conditioning can improve your car’s fuel efficiency by up to 8%.
5. At a stand still?If you are going to be stopped for 2 to 3 minutes in either a traffic jam or at traffic lights, turn your engine off, this will help cut the costs of your fuel bill.
