How to save on your fuel
With the festive period behind us and 20 15 well underway many of us are doing our best to save the pennies and live more efficiently. Here are some top tips on how to save on fuel usage:
1. Ensure you have the correct tyre pressures
Twenty percent of a vehicle’s fuel consumption is used to overcome the rolling resistance of tyres, but this percent increases if tyres are under-inflated. If your tyres are under inflated by 15 psi this will lead to 6 percent greater fuel consumption.
2. Stop accelerating and braking hard
By anticipating traffic and applying slow and steady braking and acceleration you could increase your fuel consumption by up to 20%.
3. Cut down on your air-con usage
When you use the air-conditioning in your vehicle it puts an extra load on the engine forcing more fuel to be used. This can increase the consumption by up to 15%.
4. Service your car regularly
A well maintained car is an efficient car. Regular servicing as per the manufacturer’s service schedule ensures that your car is running at top condition which of course helps with fuel consumption.
At Concorde we carry out manufacturers’ scheduled servicing. This means our services are all carried out within the manufacturer’s warranties and guarantees using OE Parts fitted only by fully qualified technicians.

"After my first experience with Concorde (following a blow out last month) my wife just called Concorde to book her car in for its first service; she spoke with a guy called Greg who was excellent to deal with. I wish everyone could know how easy it is to deal with the team at Concorde, as it is genuinely rare to experience such efficiency and be treated with such professionalism and courtesy this side of a Porsche dealership (and even then, that's hit & miss!) Genuine thanks from a genuine customer."
