Cost effective measures for efficient vehicle operations

As we usher in the month of April, it’s time we start thinking about running our vehicles efficiently. 

With fuel prices remaining stubbornly high, cost-saving techniques when running a car will come in handy. The extra cash saved can prove a godsend in times of need, whether on a rainy day or when you need a spare part for your vehicle. 

With the Easter holidays behind us and the kids back home, saving a few coins has never been more important. 

So, let’s delve into some simple, down-to-earth ways to keep those wheels turning without burning through your savings. 

The first and most crucial step to saving money is ensuring your car is in good shape before hitting the road. Picture this: you’re cruising along the highway, wind in your hair and music blaring, when suddenly, you encounter traffic police officers or even the National Transport and Safety Authority (NTSA) officers, who are now very active on our roads, performing Road Safety checks. 

Then comes the dreaded hand signals from the cops signalling you to stop. Mr. Officer wants a chat, and it’s not about the weather. Upon inspection, your license has expired, and your tail lights aren’t working. You start negotiating for your freedom hoping that the officer will let you go with just a warning.

If you didn’t pray that morning, you may end up paying a hefty fine or cash bail, having wasted both time and money.  Remember, time is money, and losing both isn’t worth it. 

To avoid all that, take a few minutes to check the essential parts of your vehicle before you set off for a journey. A quick check of your tires, lights, insurance, and license can save you from a world of trouble down the road. After all, getting pulled over because of a faulty brake light or an expired license is nobody’s idea of a good time.

Next, let’s get strategic with our driving habits. Avoid those pedal-to-the-metal moments and embrace a gentler touch on the gas pedal. Smooth acceleration and deceleration can work wonders for your fuel economy, not to mention it makes for a smoother ride – your passengers will thank you for it.

Your driving habits greatly influence the fuel economy and driving gently will ensure that you save on fuel.
