Drivers can increase fuel efficiency during petrol spike using a ‘surface check’ method


However, this isn’t the only way drivers can go above and beyond to save money filling up their cars. 

Experts also recommend changing schedules to combine separate trips into longer ones to reduce engine strain and consume less fuel.

ATS Euromaster explained: “When you do short trips, the engine doesn’t have a chance to reach its ideal operating temperature and therefore consumes more fuel. Where possible, planning ahead could save you lots of time in traffic, which, in turn, will also save you fuel. 

“Avoid travelling during rush hour where you can and, if this isn’t possible, look for alternate routes that avoid major congestion.”
