HERE are five easy tips for saving your cash at the pump while petrol prices soar.
As fuel prices rise and the cost of living crisis worsens, motor experts have found ways for drivers to save their money.
Here are five hacks for saving your cash that experts at CarFinance 247 recommend.
Cars are designed to be aerodynamic, but some things increase wind resistance and cause fuel-draining drag.
This means that your car uses up extra petrol because it’s less streamlined.
External additions to your car such as roof bars, boxes and flags do this.
Driving with your windows down has the same effect.
Cut down on air conditioning
Avoid using your air conditioning when possible.
Air con drains fuel so it’s best to switch it off when you don’t need it on.
Top up your tank
You can save money at the pump by only topping up with the fuel you need.
If you fill your tank up every time you visit the petrol station you add unnecessary weight to your car.
This means that your car is less efficient because of the extra weight from the fuel.

Use cruise control
If your vehicle comes with cruise control, use it.
Cruise control makes your engine more efficient and helps you save fuel.
It can also make your road trip more relaxing.
Replace dirty air filters
Dirty air filters can cause your car engine to work harder than it needs to.
So changing them regularly will help you save fuel over time.
Making sure your car is well maintained will also boost its performance and efficiency.
