Drivers are being urged to exercise caution when using air conditioning or leaving their windows open, as these actions may reduce fuel efficiency.
With temperatures rising and fuel prices remaining high, many people will be looking for ways to stay cool while also improving their fuel economy this summer. On average, drivers pay 178.93p per litre for gasoline, while diesel owners pay 189.30p every time they fill up.
While the RAC predicts that prices will fall, many people will be looking for ways to save money and make their fuel last longer.
When driving in hot weather, most people prefer to have their windows open or use air conditioning.
While many people may overlook their impact on fuel efficiency, both options have a significant impact on how fuel is used.
Air conditioning consumes a lot of energy, and open windows can increase drag, making the car work harder and consume more fuel.
