With some areas seeing prices exceeding N500, largely due to the cessation of fuel subsidies, this couldn’t have come at a more opportune time.

MOMAN has attributed this surge in PMS (Premium Motor Spirit) prices to the deregulation of petroleum products in Nigeria, emphasizing the necessity for Nigerians to be conscious of these fuel-saving hacks to save some precious pennies on their fuel expenses.

So, are you ready to dive into these tips? Let’s go!

Keep Your Tires Properly Inflated

An underinflated tire not only poses a safety risk but also increases rolling resistance, leading to higher fuel consumption.

A 10 psi drop can plummet your fuel efficiency by up to 10%. Keep those tires pumped!

Travel Light

Every 50kg extra load in your trunk guzzles an additional 2% of fuel.

Stick to carrying only the essentials, apart from the emergency spare tire.

Drive Efficiently

Be smart with your driving habits. If you have an automatic car, cruise control is your friend.

For manual drivers, remember to shift to higher gears when you can.

Avoid speeding up too quickly, especially from a standstill or uphill.

Anticipate Traffic Flow

Rather than suddenly braking or accelerating, get into the rhythm of the traffic.

Slow down gently when nearing a red light or descending a slope.

Abrupt braking and acceleration are fuel guzzlers.

Plan Your Route

Opt for routes with minimal traffic. Better still, travel during off-peak hours to bypass traffic congestion.

Let navigation apps like Google Maps guide you to the most fuel-efficient routes.

Don’t Idle

If you predict a standstill for over three minutes, kill the engine. Unnecessary idling drinks up fuel.

Maintain Optimal Speed

Overspeeding, especially on highways, augments wind resistance and hence, fuel consumption.

Conversely, driving below 50km/h can lead to increased fuel consumption due to lower gear operation. The sweet spot? Anywhere between 50km/h and 90km/h.

Secure the Fuel Cap

A loosely fitted fuel cap can result in fuel vapor evaporation, causing fuel loss.

Always check the cap after a refill.

Regular Vehicle Maintenance

Routine servicing of your vehicle ensures optimal engine performance and fuel efficiency.

Correct lubricants keep engine parts moving smoothly, reducing friction, and maximizing engine power.


Consider sharing your ride with trusted acquaintances.It’s a win-win: you cut down on fuel consumption and vehicle emissions.

Limit Road Time

For tasks that don’t demand physical presence, consider phone calls, video conferences, or messaging apps.This way, you’ll save on fuel and reduce your carbon footprint.

Track Your Fuel Consumption

Maintain a record of your fuel usage.

This will help you identify patterns, changes, or unusual variations in efficiency, enabling you to take timely corrective measures.

For those using petrol generators, MOMAN suggests exploring alternatives like solar power or switching to Liquified Petroleum Gas (LPG) or Compressed Natural Gas (CNG), but only when carried out by a qualified technician.

In conclusion, embracing these tips from MOMAN can significantly lower your fuel expenses, helping you to make the most of every drop. Remember, every little action adds up to substantial savings in the long run.
