Tips and advice to help you save on gas

We recognize that saving money on gas is important to every driver. That’s why we have put together a comprehensive list of tips and advice to help you improve your fuel economy – from what to look for when purchasing a vehicle to changes you can make to your driving habits.

Things to consider when looking for a fuel-efficient vehicle

  • Think small – generally, the smaller and lighter the vehicle, the more fuel efficient it will be
  • If you want a sedan or SUV, look for fuel-efficient technology such as a smaller, turbocharged engine with electric accessories, idle-stop, a multi-speed or continuously variable transmission, or a hybrid drive system
  • Go for the highest L/100 km – quite simply, the more kilometres your car can travel on each litre of gas, the more money you’ll save
