By getting rid of any surplus weight from your car you could improve fuel efficiency by up to 2%.
The lighter your car is, the less effort it will need to accelerate. By clearing out your boot and not carrying unnecessary weight you can make extra savings.
If your boot is full of junk, don’t just bin it! Any unwanted and useful items you have you could donate to Weston Hospicecare for it to sell in its various charity shops to help raise invaluable funds for its work in the area.
Another top tip to help with fuel efficiency is to remove your roof rack when it’s not needed. A roof rack adds wind resistance to your vehicle and this increases drag and makes the engine work harder.
You are burning money when you overload your vehicle with unnecessary items.
We offer free advice on getting the best fuel consumption from vehicles. It’d be great if any money saved on fuel could also be donated to Weston Hospicecare too, which is a charity very close to our hearts.
We are aware of the amazing work the hospice does for the families in the area and wanted to do our bit to help with fundraising initiatives.
Weston Hospicecare was founded in 1989 and provides physical, psychological, emotional and spiritual care to people with life-limiting illnesses such as cancer, motor neurone disease and heart or lung failure.
The Hospice’s care reaches out to people in Weston-super-Mare, North Somerset and border areas of Somerset providing a safe haven and source of comfort and guidance to every single person who needs it.
The Hospice consists of a day hospice, a ten bed In-patient Unit, a team of Hospice Community Nurse Specialists, Hospice at home, chaplaincy and bereavement services.
