A vehicle’s fuel efficiency and emissions performance will deteriorate over time, unless it is properly maintained. Tyres, particularly, can notably affect vehicle fuel economy, as well as handling and safety.
Regular servicing and appropriate vehicle maintenance can improve engine efficiency and reduce your vehicle’s performance, fuel use and emissions.
There are four main maintenance strategies to adopt to keep your vehicle in good working order:
- Keep to the recommended servicing schedule;
- Choose low rolling resistance tyres at time of replacement;
- Maintain your tyres properly; and
- Undertake simple vehicle maintenance checks regularly.
