Knowing How To Drive With Efficiency In Mind

One of your main expenses as a driver is the fuel. That much goes without saying. Unfortunately, fuel is often expensive, and there is very little that you or I can do about that. Nonetheless, there are steps you can take to keep your fuel use down. Mostly, this is a matter of learning to drive efficiently. Driving with efficiency in mind is actually pretty simple once you know how. The quickest ways to waste fuel is to speed needlessly, rapidly accelerate and brake again and again. Avoiding these will make a huge difference alone. Also, cruising at around 50mph is ideal if you are looking to save pennies on that fuel.


Basic Maintenance

There is nothing worse than having to take your car to the garage. However, it is not just about keeping your car from being seriously damaged. Keeping up the basic maintenance on your vehicle also helps to keep fuel consumption down. Make sure you keep your engine oil topped up, as this can make a huge difference here. It is also a good idea to keep an eye on your tyre pressures, as if they are low you can end up using more fuel. Also, treat your car to a service every now and then. Spending money on a service will actually save you money in the long run.

It all depends on your situation. Carefully choosing your insurance could make a big difference to your overall spendings.

Smoked duck and omelette fillings... Full to the brim... RM15....  Quiche again.... different fillings this time... RM15 And a Happy Birthday piece of cheese cake... RM14..

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening....
