With fuel costs skyrocketing, I don’t know about you, but I’m certainly concerned about the sudden increase in my weekly spending. There are multiple reasons behind the current fuel price increases, but the truth is, prices have become more expensive in the past year.
There are also many ways to help us beat the fuel price; not only can you reduce fuel costs, but also reduce carbon emissions. I’ve curated the best ways to help you save fuel; not every method is suitable for everyone, but there is at least one that will benefit you.
TAKE CARE OF YOUR VEHICLE
Taking good care of your car will help and save you trips to the gas station. Keep it well maintained by checking your tyres frequently and inflating them correctly, driving smoothly and avoiding unnecessary trips.
SWITCH TO ELECTRIC
According to Sustainable Business Network, for electric vehicle (EV) drivers, the comparable fuel price is about 40 cents per litre or just 13% of a conventional car. This means an annual energy cost saving of $3,500 per year based on average car use. So, if you are looking to buy a car or need an upgrade, electric or hybrid cars are a great option.
WFH IF YOU CAN
Working from home is becoming the norm, and nothing saves more fuel than getting rid of the need to commute to work every day. Who wouldn’t want to stay at home while saving money if your work allows you to have that flexible working arrangement?
DIFFERENT COMMUTE OPTIONS
There are many other ways to get from one destination to the other without driving your car. Depending on the location, you can take the bus, train, walk, or bike. Not only does it help you save fuel, but it also reduces carbon emission, and the latter options will help you physically too!
