Plan your journey. Avoid traffic black spots and busy times if possible, and get the map or sat-nav out to avoid getting lost and driving farther than necessary.
Lots of modern cars come with engine stop-start, which can be great if you let it work properly. Sit with your foot on the clutch and the engine will continue to burn fuel; take it off and you’ll save money and fuel.
Stick to the speed limits. What Car? research shows that doing 80mph uses up to 25% more fuel than doing 70mph.
