For every half tonne that a car weighs, it uses 700 litres of petrol a year. Every kg of additional weight in your vehicle costs you in increased fuel consumption.
Take the time to look in your back seat and boot to ensure that you are not carrying extra items around in your car that contribute to fuel burn. You should also remove items such as roof and bike racks when they are not in use to improve your fuel consumption.
To ensure that your car is in peak operating condition you should have it serviced regularly by a qualified mechanic.
