Cooling Down a Hot Vehicle In summer, nothing’s worse than coming back to a hot, stuffy vehicle. The seatbelts burn, the seats are sticky, and for the next few hours you’ll feel like you are driving in a sauna – that is, unless you use this driving hack. This quick and simple hack will help you to cool down your vehicle in under a minute. Start by rolling down all windows all the way. Then, on the passenger side of the vehicle, open and close the door five to ten times. Although this may seem rather strange, this will create circulating air flow that will force trapped hot air out and drop the inside temperature. - See more at: http://www.fueltek.co.uk/driving-hacks/#sthash.zFrhYAn1.dpuf

Hypermiling

Our fuel management systems will always make sure that you never run out of fuel, but if you want to make it go a little bit further and help the environment in the process, there are a few things you can do to preserve your fuel.

Hypermiling, also known as energy-efficient driving, is actually becoming increasingly popular with drivers. You can save your fuel by changing a few of your driving habits, such as leaving a good distance between you and the vehicle in front of you so that you can conserve energy that is lost in sudden braking.

Other methods used in hypermiling include increasing engine efficiency and reducing aerodynamic drag, but when you’re on the road your number one priority should always be that you’re driving safely.

Cleaning Headlights

Over time, on-road dirt and debris can make your headlights very cloudy, reducing your visibility when you’re driving at night. Some cleaners don’t quite manage to get the glass as clear and clean as you would want, but this simple trick will have your headlights looking like new!

Toothpaste – particularly whitening brands – is the perfect thing to use to clean foggy or cloudy headlights. Simply apply toothpaste to the plastic lens cover with a cloth and thoroughly rub all over. Once you have finished, completely rinse off the toothpaste with clean water and dry the lens cover. - See more at: http://www.fueltek.co.uk/driving-hacks/#sthash.zFrhYAn1.dpuf
