Fuel Saving Tips

Avoid making short journeys.

If you want to goto the shop just up the road or a destination which isn't far just walk or cycle there. Cars tend to burn more fuel and produce more emissions on short journeys where the engine doesn't get chance to warm up (which can wear them out faster). If you want to burn less fuel and travel further the best way is to not use your car if possible. If you want to go into a congestion zone it's also best to cycle because you don't have to worry about traffic or parking (depending on your citys infrastructure) and it can actually save you time.
