Musings on Fuel Efficiency 1

Fuel prices. One of the quintessential pains in the neck of modern living, and it seems like we cannot beat it. Over time the price of everything goes up. However, fuel prices have rocketed in recent years.

So what causes this huge surge in price. In the UK it is quite simply because the TAX and import duty added to a liter of fuel is as much as the cost of fuel, which nearly doubles the price the consumer pays at the pump. I wont bore you with the details, as we cannot evade these taxes as they are applied even before the petrol comes to your station. However I can tell you how you could get more mileage for your fuel, saving your wallet from being cleaned out every time you stop for fuel. And over the course of a year this could compound to a few hundred quid!

Over the course of the next few posts, I will share some tips on how to get much better milage for your money. So fasten your seatbelts* and read on.
