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.

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

MISSING IN BLOGGING AGAIN.... this has become a norm now ever since I arrived to this continental... LOL... Now I understand the word of Full Commitment when it comes to taking care of baby... seriously, I have to be fully commited and occupied by this little cheeky fella who is now going to be his 10th month soon.  Wow... time flies, when I first came, he was just slightly over four months... that being said, it is soon time fo rme to pack my bags and leave.  LOL... My 6 months being a babysitter is soon over... and did I say I can hardly wait?  NO, NO... I love my job here and I am going to miss my baby tremendously!  I only don't miss his cries!  LOL...  OK, by the time I write this post, Chinese New Year is over, it is now the 4th day of CNY.  Two days before the Lunar New Year, my daughter-in-law and I cooperated fully and baked a few types of cookies.  Looking back at these pictures, I dare say that we did a good job... not on the cookies but at least we had a great time bond

Buffet Lunch At Baccanal Caesar Palace Hotel, Las Vegas

BUFFET LUNCH... We made reservation for a nice buffet a week before we came to Las Vegas, the buffet is one of its kind in Caesar Palace, Baccanal is the name of the restaurant.  My kids were saying that we must have at least one good and memorable meal while here in Las Vegas and they chose the seafood buffet.  It cost around $90 per pax and being Asians, sure we would be attracted to just seafood!  Alaska Crabs... hairy crabs....lobster claws..  clams etc etc...  Oh, I did not take much photos on what we ate, just too busy stuffing in and to take out the camera with dirty hands and all.  LOL.... Just the initial stage and after that, it was all about eating and eating... oh, by the way, they only allowed 90 minutes in the restaurant, but I don't think they timed anyone... LOL.. Anyway, we took that amount of time to finish our food, sipping free champayne and mocktail too.  What a scrumptious meal... from mains to desserts, I think we only had one meal done for that day itself...
