Re: Pointers to Save Petrol

LOL!.. yeah, don't drive save $$..

some additional pointers: don't go for too big rims, ditch the spoilers and bodykits, don't mod the car..
imo, the best way is to anticipate traffic conditions.

Minimize the use of your brakes, cuz the less time u spend slowing down = less time accelerating back.
Also = lesser wear and a smoother drive.

Re: Pointers to Save Petrol

don't rev more then 2000RPM, don't use air-con.
& the most important. pump only at night. as the air is less dense( i forget if it's more dense or lees :/ ). in the long run,you will gain "free petrol" for paying the same price.
it's a proven fact.

Re: Pointers to Save Petrol

the storage tanks in stations are kept at a near constant temp by being located underground.
plus I believe the pumps are temperature compensated as well. They won't let u earn their $$ so easily de.

if anything, probably pumping when temps are cooler, the petrol won't evaporate out of your tank as quick. (the fuzzy wave of air at the nozzle there)
but I also pump at night coz it feels better.. =D

one tip is not to use the auto refil and slowly fill by hand.. abit qua zhang and slow,
but u probably save a few ml of petrol if need to be that desperate n every drop n km counts.
