Why You Need To Keep Your Vehicle’s Weight Down

Carrying extra weight is a certain way to kill your car’s fuel economy. Doing so will also put additional strain on wear-and-tear parts of your car such as the tyres, brakes and suspension bushes.

Remove all unnecessary items you don’t need in the car. Start with the car door pockets and glove-box, then look under the seats for any stray items. Then moving next to the boot or trunk, clear out everything you don’t need. Just remember to leave the toolkit, jack and locking wheel nut key in case of emergencies.

Do not carry more than the manufacturer’s recommended number of passengers in your car. Following these rules will definitely improve your fuel economy and make your tyres and suspension parts last longer.
