Fuel-saving tips: Drivers told to do their very best to save on petrol and diesel costs

Using hypermiling techniques, some road users have seen their miles per gallon increase by 35 to 40 percent.

Drivers have been warned against this method, however, as the traffic code tells drivers to ensure that their clothing and footwear do not prevent them from using the controls properly.

Some thin shoes, such as flip flops or sandals, can see the driver’s feet slip off the pedals.

On the other hand, heavier shoes like boots can cause drivers to misjudge how much gas is needed, wasting fuel.
