    oh I see I see, so I guess the app can connect to our existing Mesra card directly? and all the current points can be transferred over, so that existing customers wont be reluctant to try it out since they can keep their points.

    I dont think other petrol station can use it, only for petronas, but with so many branches all across Malaysia I dont think it is a huge problem tho, just give it a try as others dont have such technology yet.

    Its different from them, if you use those ewallets you still need to go to the counter and pay which needs up almost the same as paying with cash, exposing you to danger outside.

    And through the app you can always check the price of the petrol currently also, so you can plan ahead how much you want to pay or the amount you want to refuel with needing to check externally.

    You could also try driving even slower, say 80 km/h.

    Higher gears are a good idea as well as is not carrying as much and closing your windows and turning off unnecessary accessories.

    Not madly accelerating and then slamming the breaks on helps as well.

    You could also save a bit of fuel by keeping the revs above 200 rpm when going downhill, that way the engine will use no fuel (at least if it's recent).

    Tailgating can allow you to reduce drag slightly but the fuel savings aren't worth running up the back of someone so don't do that and the people who typically tailgate have a driving style that causes them to use more fuel anyway. Accelerating up to about 85 km/h then turning your engine off until you get down to about 70 km/h and then restarting the engine and accelerating in 5th back up to 85 km/h and repeating is a very efficient way to drive but it is also not very safe at least on public roads (not to mention most cars lock the steering wheel when turned off). Going down hills with the clutch in will waste fuel in newer cars and whilst it may help in older cars is unsafe and shouldn't be done (besides, what you might save in fuel in an older car you'll pay in new break pads if you do that).

    Park your car at home and take public transport.
