There are a few ways to lower the monthly costs that you have for your car. Your main costs tend to come from the fuel costs, where the regular visits to the petrol station can be quite expensive with today’s high petrol prices.
If you then also split your service costs and the tyre costs on a monthly basis and combine that with the insurance costs, you should have your monthly costs. Here are some ways that you might be able to reduce some of them:
Economical driving can save you a lot of fuel. A smooth driving style versus an aggressive style will save you money on fuel.
Make sure that you buy tyres with a low rolling resistance, so that the fuel consumption will be low.
Use tyres where the tyre wear is low, so that your tyres will last as long as possible.
Make sure that you have the correct inflation pressure in your tyres so that the rolling resistance doesn’t increase, causing your car to consumer more fuel than it should.
Make sure that you have the correct inflation pressure in your tyres so that the wear doesn’t increase, causing your tyres to wear out prematurely.
Drive cautiously to avoid accidents that might push your insurance premiums higher.
If you follow most of these you will see that your monthly costs will decrease over time. In the end, the savings can be substantial even though it sounds like they would be quite small. In addition to saving costs, you will increase your safety while driving, which then further should reduce your insurance costs for further monthly savings.
