Simple checks to save you money and time – Fuel

With the cost of living soaring and most people needing to review their unnecessary spending we thought it might be useful to highlight some of the simple things that you can check around and about your vehicle. Some will save you money straight away and some will help prevent bigger bills later.
Spend five minutes carrying out these simple checks every few weeks – and certainly before a long journey or an MOT.


Check you have plenty of fuel in your tank for your journey. It may sound obvious, but you’d be surprised just how many people run out of fuel.
And on that note, you should aim not to see that little red light come on. It is to warn you that you are running on fuel reserves, not be a reminder to fill up.
Running the fuel that low especially on a recurring basis increases the chances of pulling any contaminants or sediment from the bottom of the tank through your fuel system and into the engine. Greatly increasing the possibility of causing expensive and long-term damage.
