Start up the car properly Cars these days do not require you to prime the engine by pumping the accelerator pedal repeatedly before starting. Such an action wastes fuel, so avoid doing it. When starting the engine, idle it for no more than 30 seconds to warm it up. #wintertires

Check your tyre pressures As you drive down the road, your engine is working to overcome the rolling resistance of the tyres on the road surface all the time. If your tyres are underinflated by just 10 per cent this could make your fuel usage increase by a similar amount. It’s also unsafe for the tyres not to be inflated to their designed pressures. #summertyres

Keep your engine tuned Studies have shown that a poorly tuned engine can increase fuel consumption by as much as 10 to 20 percent depending on a car's condition. Follow the recommended maintenance schedule in your owner's manual; you'll save fuel and your car will run better. #nonstuddedtyres

Anticipate the road better The key to maximum efficiency from your engine is to keep the revs low. One way to do this is to plan ahead when driving. Brake gently for corners and try to maintain speed so you don’t have to accelerate too much. When you do, press the pedal lightly to build speed slowly rather than surging forwards. #wintertyres
