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.

My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

FAILED THIS TIME..... I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes.... The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven....

Home Cooked Dishes

NOT MUCH HAPPENING... and lazy too.... My neighbour gave me half pumpkin and I have been keeping it for a couple of days before I finally decide what to do with it.  I cook it into small chunks and sauteed it with minced meat, okra and basil leaves.  Yes, it would be great to put in some small cilipadi but unfortunately, I did not find any in my fridge.  Steamed a bowl of rice and that was meal for dinner....

Another dinner meal consist of Sambal Fish, black pepper met and a hard boiled egg  I only boiled the egg, the other two dishes were "sponsored" by my neighbour... LOL...
