Empty your car boot to boost fuel efficiency.
Whether home storage space is an issue or you’re too busy to remember, it can be easy to permanently leave things like kids’ bikes or DIY tools in the back of your car. A car carrying additional weight requires more energy to accelerate, decelerate and maintain a constant speed.
Studies have shown that an additional weight of 45 kg can reduce a car’s fuel efficiency by up to 2%. It may not seem like a lot, but over time it can add up and result in higher fuel costs.
