These days, the expenditure associated with driving seems never to end. Of course, there is the capital cost of vehicles to consider and – in many ways – car manufacturers have made great strides in providing the road going public with better and better cars for less outlay. Nevertheless, car finance, lease deals, tax, insurance, fuel and parts all seem to get more expensive with every subsequent year. Running a car costs thousands of pounds per annum for an average motorist. However, there are some measures that every car owner can take to reduce their expenditure when driving about. Indeed, a good many of these measures are also suited to van owners, bikers and owners of commercial vehicles, too.
