Plan your jour­ney care­fully to avoid de­lays and keep an eye out for road­works – the short­est route isn’t al­ways the most fuel ef­fi­cient one.

Make sure your tyres are in­flated to the cor­rect pres­sures be­fore you set off – it’ll make a big dif­fer­ence to how much fuel you use.

Try to re­sist open­ing the win­dows or run­ning the air con­di­tion­ing, both of which will shave at least 10 per cent off the fuel econ­omy.

Stick to 60mph rather than 70mph on mo­tor­ways and dual car­riage­ways – it’ll be kinder to your clas­sic and will help to bring the mpg up.

Main­tain a safe gap be­tween your car and the car in front, par­tic­u­larly in busy traf­fic – you’ll find that you brake and ac­cel­er­ate less as a re­sult, which in turn helps to con­serve fuel.
