FUEL SUBSIDY REMOVAL IN NIGERIA: ADOPT A DEFENSIVE AND ECO-DRIVING STYLE TO REDUCE YOUR FUEL COST

Defensive, advanced and eco-driving (ecological driving) styles all rely on the same principle - looking and planning well ahead coupled with anticipation and awareness of potential hazards and changes in road conditions and traffic movement. Defensive and eco-driving is universally regarded as desirable because it not only can save huge amount of fuel, it can produce a dramatic reduction in collision and personal injury costs but also is demonstrably more favourable to the environment. Defensive and eco-driving is now a recognised and proven style of driving that contributes to road safety whilst reducing fuel consumption and emission. If you make these changes you could reduce your fuel bill. Follow the tips below and you could save as much as 30% on your fuel bill.

Maintenance
- Regular Servicing- Get your car serviced regularly to maintain engine efficiency.
Engine Oil- Make sure you use the correct specification of engine oil
- Tyre Pressures- Check tyre pressures regularly and before long journeys. Under-inflated tyres create more rolling resistance and so use more fuel. getting tyre pressures right is important for safety too.

Before You Go
- Lose Weight- Extra weight means extra fuel so if there are things in the boot you don't need on the journey take it out and leave it at home.
- Don' get lost- Plan unfamiliar journeys to reduce the chance of getting lost. Check traffic news if available.
- Combine short trips- Cold starts are inefficient so it pays to combine errands such as buying the papers, school run, or collecting the kids into one trip rather than making multiple short trips.
- Consider alternatives- If it's a short journey ( a couple of kilometres or so) consider walking or cycling rather than taking the car.

On the Way
- Leave promptly- Don't start the engine until you are ready to go. This avoids fuel wastage due to unnecessry idling and ensures that the engine wams up as quickly as possible.
- Easy does it- drive smoothly, accelerate gently and read the road ahead to avoid unnecessary braking.
- Decelerate smoothly- When you have to slow down or to stop, decelerate smoothly by releasing the accelerator in time, leaving the car in gear.
- Keep CarRolling- If you can keep the car moving all the time, so much the better. Stopping and starting again uses more fuel than keeping rolling.
- Change up gears earlier- Change gear as soon as possible withou labouring the engine. try changing up at an engine speed of around 2000rpm in a diesel car or around 2500 rpm in a petrol car.
- Cut down on the air-condition use- Air conditioning increases fuel consumption at low speeds, but at higher speeds the effects are less noticeable. so if it is a hot day it is more ecominical to open the windows around town and save the air conditioning for high speed driving. Don't leave the air condition on at all times, but run it at least once a week throughout the year to maintain the system in good condition.
- Turn it off- Any electrical load increases fuel consumption, so turn off your heated rear windscreen, demister blowers and headlights, when you don't need them.
- Stick to the limits- Drive at or within the speed limit. The faster you go the greater the fuel consumption and the greater the pollution too. according to available statistics, driving at 110 kmph uses up to 9% more fuel than at 95 kmph and up to 15% more than at 80 kmph. cruising at 130 kmph can use up to 25% more fuel than at 110 kmph.
- Don't be idle- if you do get caught in a queue avoid wasting fuel by truning the engine off if it looks like you could be waiting for more than three minutes.
