Did you know that the way you drive can also keep money in your pocket? Here, John and He­len Tay­lor from Fuel Academy share some of their handy hacks for busy mums on a bud­get. 1 TRAVEL LIGHTLY Don’t drive around with heavy items, such as travel cots and bulky ex­tras, in your boot. As John ex­plains, “the more weight you carry, the higher your fuel con­sump­tion will be”. 2 GET SET­TLED “When driv­ing with ba­bies and chil­dren, it is im­por­tant to have them set­tled before you start your jour­ney,” says He­len, “be­cause if you’re stressed, you’re much more likely to make er­rors in judge­ment.” 3 AC­CEL­ER­ATE GRAD­U­ALLY Main­tain a con­sis­tent speed and re­ally think about how you take off at traf­fic lights. “Fast starts burn more fuel, and it all adds up in the end,” says He­len.
