Stan has some great money saving tips on how to improve your rental van fuel consumption.

Firstly, keeping your ‘revs’ down to around 2000rpm will really make a difference to how efficiently your van is running.  The modern engine and gearbox combinations available from Stans Preston Car & Van hire depot mean a van driver can cruise at 2000rmp in top gear and still be traveling at the maximum legal limit for a van (speed limits for vans are lower than for cars).  This will really help maximise your fuel economy in your Lancashire rental van.

Carrying unnecessary items in your van can cause wasted fuel, so only load what you need for your journey as this will improve your fuel consumption.

Stan also warns against being a ‘late braker’.  Braking early and gently will make a more pleasant driving experience, whereas accelerating too quickly can over rev the engine unnecessarily, negatively affecting your mpg and stress levels.  Our golden rule to prevent over revving whilst driving is to leave plenty of time for your journey.

Finally driving a modern vehicle can significantly reduce your fuel consumption, which is why here at Stan Car & Van hire Lancashire the majority of our fleet is under 3 years old, with a large proportion being less than 12 months old!  You can enjoy some of the most modern cars and vans available by renting from Stan Car & Van Hire Preston.

So remember if you want a quality hire car , a reliable rental van, a Luton for your Preston removals or a minibus for the football teamphone Stan 01772 700 595 he can help.
