Ensure Tyres are Inflated Properly

Sometimes this one can fly right past us, but for fuel preservation, it’s vital to keep your tyres inflated properly.

Driving with the incorrect tyre pressure can chew up your fuel pretty quickly- so it’s important to do your tyre checks every now and again when at the servo.

Smart Camping

If saving money on fuel is a priority for you when camping, plan ahead and camp in a spot closest to the destinations you want to visit.

Camp at parks near shops, events, the beach or wherever you plan on visiting most, so you can walk to your destinations.

Keeping fit and saving money, it’s a win-win!

7-Eleven Fuel Reserve App

If you’re looking to source some cheap fuel, consider installing the 7-Eleven app.

Not only does it give you the option to find the cheapest fuel near you, but it allows you to lock in the cheapest price and reserve it for up to 7 days!
