One of the best way to drive is Zen driving. It means we don’t use the brakes (or at least minimum braking) and drive on with light touch on the pedal and speed at corners and let go when the front car is slowing down. In other words we are driving consciously and aware of the thrill of slow driving, accelerating or even maintaining our speed. This state of consciousness, called Zen driving is the best feeling when one is driving and it’s effortless and relaxing. Try it and you save petrol as a bonus!
Each year, whether you drive a hybrid or a 3 liter engine, one hopes to squeeze more
kilometers out of each liter of fuel. What’s more we have seen the price of petrol recording new levels and no relief in sight. There’s no shortage of bad news to skyrocket this precious commodity be it news of impending war, disruption to shipping lines, explosion of gas lines or hot summers causing demand to exceed supply etc.
Hence, this quest for savings in petrol consumption is never far from our mind. But is
it easy? Every day we are bombarded with new devices that promise better yields, new engines, add-ons or even new fuels but are we game enough to try or be subjected to ridicule for being cheated?
But as consumers, having a car is a necessity, what can we do about it? Unfortunately
there is not much; unless we change our entire attitude towards saving petrol and thus saving the planet earth. If one has the idea that let the others save petrol whilst one consumes non-stop, think about it; all of us think the same way!
This blog is about how to save petrol but goes further to touch a heart or two that we better wake up to Mother Nature or face the music. Better do this and save a pile on your next petrol bill, too.
Remember you cannot teach others how to save petrol if you are not doing it yourself and worst still if you don’t know how-to yourself! After all, the best teacher is often the doer and must take the call to action; otherwise one must expect government to impose higher fuel prices, higher tax and higher penalties for our poor petrol saving habits.
