Easy Car Fuel saving tips which are simple to implement in 2013 ($ saving)

Easy Car Fuel saving tips which are simple to implement in 2013 ($ saving)

We cannot fight with these with oil companies only thing we can do is to save on the use of gas. There are so many ways we can reduce spending on gas. Some people says buy new car with so that you have to spend less. That is not that easy. Here some ways we can reduce our gas expenses.

First easy tip -Slow down why are you rushing (save 20%)

On most major Canadian highways the posted limit is 100 km/h. If you have a heave foot and like to increase your cruising speed from 100 to 120 km/h, you are also increasing your vehicle's fuel consumption by about 20 per cent. Do you really want to buy 20 per cent more gas at today's prices?

First easy tip-Not driving? Turn off the car (saving 5% saving)

2nd easy tip-You get 0 kilometers per liter if your car is idling. You're not going anywhere, but you're using up costly gas. Instead of idling at a drive-up window, why not park the car and go in? Not only is it often faster, but idling in a line for longer than 10 seconds burns more gas than restarting the engine. Idle for more than 10 minutes a day and you'll find that you use about five per cent more fuel every year.

2nd easy tip-the "stuff" you keep in your car (saving 1-2%)

3rd easy tip -Too often cars become a storage room. While it may seem convenient, it's estimated that for every additional 100 pounds in your vehicle you are likely reducing the mileage you get per tank by 1-2 per cent.

4rth easy tip-Relax and enjoy the drive (little extra time)

If someone told you that you could save two or three minutes of your time by burning 25 per cent more fuel would you think it was worth it? Drivers with aggressive driving tendencies (like speeding, rapid acceleration and hard braking), increase their fuel consumption by about 25 per cent. Consider as well that aggressive city driving only saves you about 2½ minutes on a 60 minute trip. It hardly seems worth it.

5th easy tip-Keep your car maintained and running smoothly (healthy car saves a lot)

Your car was designed with certain minimum requirements for optimal operation and when these minimums are not met your fuel-efficiency suffers. Consider:
•Your tires. Keeping your tires properly inflated helps your car run efficiently. So much so that properly inflated tires can save you up to two weeks’ worth of gas each year.
•Your motor oil. Improve your gas mileage by 1-2 per cent by using the manufacturer's recommended grade of motor oil - use anything else and you're not getting all you can from your car.

6th easy tip-Drive safely

OK, this last one is obvious but true. Drivers with no accidents or tickets almost always pay less for their auto insurance coverage. Your driving record is a key factor in determining your insurance rate. Tickets and at-fault accidents affect your insurance rates for years. With a less than perfect driving record, you can find yourself paying much higher insurance premiums.

6th tip -Save money on your auto insurance

While saving money at the pumps is something you can do every week, the following tips will ensure you have the tools needed to maximize your insurance savings too.

7th tip-Shop around

Rates can vary wildly between insurers. Only by shopping around for auto insurance and getting quotes from several insurance companies will you know you are getting your car insurance coverage at the best available rate. Don't pay more than you have to for the car insurance you need. Compare your car insurance rates and coverage on an annual basis.

8th tip-Select a higher insurance deductible

Policyholders with deductibles set to $500 could save up to 5 per cent by raising them to $1,000. Keep it affordable though because this is how much you'll have to cover should you need to submit a claim.

9th tip-Don't pay for optional coverage you do not need

Review your policy to see if there is optional coverage or features included in your current policy that you may not need. For example, if you drive an older car you may no longer want collision coverage, comprehensive coverage, or both.

10th tip-Consider the cost of paying monthly

You could save money by paying your annual premium all at once, instead of setting up a monthly payment plan. Many companies will charge you a little extra to cover the cost of administering your payments every month.
