4. Avoid banging your car against the garage wall with this tennis ball trick

 

Big car, small garage? The problem with parking in a garage is you don't always know how far to drive in. Solution: attach a tennis ball to some string and hang it from the garage ceiling at a point where it will touch your car's windshield. That point should be at the exact spot you want to pull in when parking.

5. Confused as to which side the fuel tank is?

 

Driving a new or unfamiliar car? Look at the fuel gauge to figure it out: the little triangle will point to the side the fuel tank is.

6. Avoid a hot steering wheel when you park your car

On a hot day, turn your steering wheel 180 degrees when you park so that the top isn't burning hot when you return. By doing so, the side you normally touch in the shade and the other side exposed to the sun. While part of your wheel will still be pretty hot when you touch it, you'll quickly revert the wheel back to its normal position and you'll no longer have to worry about burning your hands when you drive away!

 

7. DIY windscreen washer fluid

 

It is imperative that you top up your windscreen washer fluid on a regular basis. However, if you want the best results possible, make an effective windscreen washer fluid, by simply adding one part window cleaner to two parts water. Ensure that you mix it well before pouring it into the windscreen washer tank.

8. Go online and save money on car insurance

MiWay will reward you if you prefer doing things online! By simply applying for and taking out your insurance policy online, MiWay will pay you an average full month's premium after 3 months full premiums are received. Terms & conditions apply
