How to know if your Van is Fuel Efficient?

With prices of fuel fluctuating without much notice and the importance of ensuring that you are looking after the planet as you go about your days, at  VanQuoteDirect they have put together some top tips for ensuring that your van is running as efficiently as possible. Not only will this help you act in an eco-friendly way but it will also mean that you save money in terms of your fuel bill too.

One of the first things you can do to ensure that your van is running efficiently is that your tires are inflated properly. Under or over inflated tires will mean that you use more fuel than necessary but the correct pressure tires could reduce your consumption by 3%. It is important to remember that your tires will lose on average around 1 PSI per month and even more during the winter months due to heat changes in the air which cause thermal contraction. As a result it is recommended that you check your tire pressure at least monthly but preferably every two weeks. Not only will it help reduce your fuel consumption but it will also help reduce uneven wear on the tread of your tires. There are number of places where you can check the pressure of your tires including air compressors at petrol stations.
