Getting rid of any surplus weight from your car can 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.
Another top tip is to remove your roof rack when it is not needed. A roof rack adds wind resistance to your vehicle and this increases drag and makes the engine work harder. This will also improve fuel efficiency by up to 2%.
