The less you burn, the more you earn!
Some of the various ways in which you can save fuel include:
WALK OR CYCLE
If you need to travel short distances, avoid using a fuel-consuming vehicle and choose to walk or cycle instead. Not only is this
good for the environment, but it will also keep you fit and healthy!
USE PUBLIC TRANSPORT
Using public transport like buses and trains reduces your individual fuel consumption. Using taxis and auto rickshaws is also
better than using a private vehicle as they run on CNG, which is less polluting.
If you can't use your school bus or public transport to get to school or tuitions, try and get together with friends who live
close by and car pool intead. This will not only reduce fuel consumption, but will also reduce traffic load on roads.
Get the PUC (Pollution Under Control) checked for your vehicle every six months. This will help keep the pollution level low.
Switch off your vehicle's engine at signals. Fuel is also conserved if you don't change gears too often and drive at speeds
between 50 to 70 km per hour.
Use a lid on vessels when cooking and boiling foods, or better yet, use a presuure cooker. This will reduce the amount of
cooking time required and thus save cooking fuel.
PREP, COOK, EAT
Encourage whoever runs your kitchen to keep ingredients washed, chopped and ready before they switch on the gas to start
cooking. Also encourage your family to eat as soon as the food is served to reduce the need for reheating.
Make sure to follow these tips yourself and encourage others to follow in your footsteps.
