    Hi There

    Must say I really enjoy your news letter and look forward to its arrival each month.
    I would like to suggest another fuel saving tip….dont brake harshly, letting your engine and gear box do the work for you uses less fuel.

    Cheers Paul.

    Hi Paul,
    I used to do that all the time…. until My Son told Me that brakes are much cheaper to replace than a gearbox…

    Air Conditioning is a must with temperatures over 33C in the country..
    as the inside temperature of a car can be over 40C
    and when it gets over 35C even in a white car, its very uncomfortable in an UN air conditioned car… Fine.. IF You live near the ocean… but, many of Us don’t…

    You can cross OFF NON Ethanol petrol….
    as the NSW government has made it mandatory for normal Unleaded to have up to 10% ethanol… This has already taken place in New service stations in the country.
    The LARGE -May contain Ethanol- stickers have been replaced by very small stickers .. so, We won’t notice… the petrol pumps are named 91 – 95 – 98 RON

    so, If You don’t want ethanol… You will be paying for Premium Fuel… 95 or 98 RON.
