Do not accelerate suddenly
On your next trip, opt for gradual acceleration. Gently depress the accelerator pedal and give your engine time to adapt gradually to the demand for power, promoting more efficient combustion and optimum fuel economy.
Do not brake suddenly
By driving smoothly and anticipating stops, you can reduce the frequency with which you need to brake, helping to save fuel while preserving the life of your engine.
Clean the fuel system regularly
Optimise fuel consumption by regularly cleaning your vehicle’s fuel system. Wynn’s fuel system cleaners remove deposits and residues in the engine’s fuel system, maintaining optimum fuel flow and optimal engine performance.
Remove roof boxes and trailers when they are no longer needed
Accessories such as roof boxes and trailers can increase air resistance, leading to higher fuel consumption. Remove them when you don’t need them to improve your vehicle’s aerodynamics and save fuel.
Check tyre pressure regularly
Maintain optimum tyre pressure to reduce rolling resistance and save fuel on every journey.
Check wheel alignment
Incorrect wheel alignment can lead to increased road resistance. Check your wheel alignment regularly to avoid unnecessary tyre wear and maintain maximum fuel efficiency.
Clean your engine at every oil change
Preserve your engine’s optimum performance by regularly cleaning away accumulated residues. Wynn’s oil additives, particularly the Motor Cleaner, eliminates deposits, allowing you to enjoy optimum engine lubrication. The treatment will dissolve the sludge and keep the deposits in suspension in the crankcase, making them easier to remove when the oil is changed. The new oil will, therefore, not be contaminated by used oil residues as soon as it enters the crankcase.
Prefer air conditioning to open windows
Using open windows can increase air resistance, affecting fuel consumption. Choose air conditioning at high speeds and use windows at low speeds to maximise fuel efficiency.
Plan your routes to avoid traffic
Avoid traffic jams by carefully planning your routes, helping to save fuel and maintain a smooth drive.
Use an app to drive fewer kilometres
Optimise your journeys by using advanced navigation applications to plan shorter, more efficient routes, reducing the distance travelled and contributing to significant fuel savings.
By following these simple tips, you can save fuel and contribute to more environmentally responsible driving. At Wynn’s, we’re committed to providing the solutions you need to maintain your engine’s optimum performance and contribute to more environmentally friendly driving.
