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 …

Getaway Weekday Trip To Cameron Highlands

UPHILL....

It has been two years since I last made an overnight trip to Cameron Highlands.  It was an impromptu trip, we only talked about it a couple of nights and the next day, all was arranged and done.  My friend rented the apartment from her niece, for two nights, we got a good deal, each of us only paid RM50 for a two nights stay.  Of course, it was an off peak season, otherwise we could not get the good deal offer.  LOL.... My friends planned everything from A to Z, they even went marketing to buy all the food stuff needed, pre-cooked some to take up for our steamboat dinner in the evening.  The weather was very cooling and nice, we had to wear our jackets especially in the evenings and mornings. 

Started off our journey by eating something light from Ipoh cos we have planned to take something good for lunch in Tringkap.  On the way, we stopped at a place called Green View Garden for some desserts before proceeding for our lunch.  Hmmmm... desserts before main meal?
Our fir…

Gathering At Top Grade Hot Soup, Ipoh

HOT SOUP ON RAINY DAYS... Yes, nowadays it pours, almost every day and in the late afternoon.  So cooling that I do not need to switch on the air con these days.  For cooling days, it is best to drink hot soup but do not land into one, okay?  LOL.. 
A few of my classmates planned an evening out at Top Grade restaurant at Festival Walk area.  I did not know that Ipoh has a branch, my first time was taken in Penang.  The boss told us that they have a branch in Ipoh, that sounds great!  I like their soup cooked with coconut water, the sweet taste is there... but funny, I don't know it is me or the soup, I still find the one I ordered in Penang is much nicer than this Ipoh branch.  I tried two times in Ipoh, my verdict?  The soup is still better in Penang.. okay, Penang wins!  The coconut soup base looks like this.....  Consisting of chicken, pig stomach, chestnuts, corn, red dates...  It cost RM58 since I am a member.. otherwise it is RM78... Others are add-ons...  And the soup gang…
