In the tiniest of nutshells (for more detail, scroll up to listen to the audio):

  • Don’t fill up your tank – you’ll save lots of weight and therefore money if you don’t fill it beyond, say, the halfway mark

  • Ensure your vehicle is well-maintained

  • Shift into a higher gear as soon as possible – lower revs mean lower consumption

  • Drive more slowly, and less erratically

  • Avoid unnecessary trips by, for example, forming a carpool
