3 Easy Tips To Reduce The Costs Of Driving

Do you worry about the amount of money it costs to keep your car on the road? Would you like to lower the cost of getting from A to B without swapping your vehicle? Then you’ve come to the right place. The ideas and information on this page will help everyone to keep more cash in the bank at the end of the month. You don’t need qualifications in mechanics, and don’t need to invest in expensive technology. In truth, most of the advice you’re about to read comes down to common sense. Still, there’s nothing wrong with stating the obvious and refreshing your memory.

Pay for regular engine tuning

Car tuning is often used to enhance vehicle performance. However, it could also help you to reduce your fuel costs considerably. Just take your automobile to a trained mechanic and ask how they could help. You won’t notice a massive difference straight away, but you should see an improvement over the course of a few weeks. With a bit of luck, you won’t have to fill the tank so often, and you will have more cash in the bank or life’s luxuries. Make sure the professional you select understands your goals before they get started. Otherwise, they could make changes that create the opposite results.



Amend your insurance policy

Most people have to make an estimate with regards to mileage when applying for insurance. It’s often wise to over-estimate your travel distances to ensure you’re always covered. However, the price of your policy could decrease if you offer a more accurate figure. So, now could be the best time to call your insurance provider and put them straight. Also, making small changes to how you use the car and where you keep it could improve the situation. Maybe it’s time to put your vehicle in a garage overnight? That should also encourage the provider to drop their prices.
  
Don’t use your car for short commutes

It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to see that you always use more fuel during short drives. With that in mind, you should turn that situation around right now. Don’t make the mistake of driving to the shops when they are less than three miles away. Walking would reduce your fuel costs, but it could also help you to get in shape. That is an especially good idea for people who own models with large engines. A short commute to the shops could cost almost as much as a long motorway drive. Remember that, and try to avoid using your vehicle unless it’s 100% necessary.

Those three tips should help all readers to lower the costs of driving. Of course, you don’t have to stop there. It’s possible to modify your engine to ensure you get the optimum distances from petrol and diesel. The only issue is those modifications can cost a lot of money. So, anyone going that far should get their calculator out. Work out the costs involved and then see if it’s cheaper to purchase something new. At the end of the day, there is nothing wrong with a small engine. Cars don’t have to be status symbols - sometimes they’re just functional items.

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL... 
Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch here in …

Caring And Sharing At Limestone, Regal Lodge, Ipoh

IMPROMPTU GATHERING.... Nothing was planned beforehand, it was only at the last minute that we received call to have lunch at Limestone Cafe, inside Regal Lodge.  It was my first time there to have set lunch.  The menu prices were reasonable, around RM15.90 for the main dish, RM3 for a bowl of soup and RM2 for ice cream.  Other than that, coffee, tea and soft drinks are free.  
We were there not so much for the food but for the ambiance... we practically had the whole cafe to ourselves during that lunch hour.  Only one or two tables were occupied and we spent more than two hours there since it was a Friday long hour lunch for my working colleagues.  After a few months absence from me, it was wonderful to catch up with my ex-colleagues again!  
I was super hungry by lunch time and I felt like eating almost anything in the menu. We ended up ordering one main dish each and then sharing them with one another so that we could taste a bit of this and that..... 
I felt like eating Aglio Oli…

Famous Wanton Mee At New Hoong Kee, Bandar Sri Damansara

BREAKFAST FEAST..  Best meal of the day is always my first meal because I know I am able to tuck in as much as my stomach can accept.  I eat a lot in the mornings and then slowly dwindle by the end of the day.  As the saying goes, eat like a king in the morning and like a pauper in the evenings.  This is what I normally do nowadays, not because I wanted to, but it is my own body system that tune me this way.  Though I deny I am old but the body says otherwise... LOL...

On this morning, we went to New Hoong Kee in Bandar Sri Damansara, my sibling said this is currently his favourite place.  And after trying, I know why.... the food we ordered, all turned out good and tasty, even the curry reminded me of my good old days!
Managed to catch the name otherwise I wouldn't be able to tell this story now...  My type of curry... I can go without the chicken... Just the other ingredients will do fine for me.. I like the way they cook this curry... Heard the BBQ pork is tasty too... melt in …
