Maintenance is important for all vehicles, and vital to economical driving.
Keep your vehicle well maintained:
Regular Servicing, get your vehicle serviced regularly (according to the manufacturer's schedule) to maintain engine efficiency, neglect this and you'll find you're using a lot more fuel.
make sure you use the right specification of engine oil (check the handbook)
check tyre pressures regularly and before long journeys; under-inflated tyres will have a impact on economy - tyre manufacturer Goodyear says that if your tyres are 20% under-inflated, you'll use 10% more fuel. (check the handbook and increase pressures for heavier loads as recommended)
