Owning a car in Singapore is infamously expensive. Whether you need it for work or are parents who have to ferry the kids around, better fuel savings are always welcome.
Despite the comprehensive public transport system in Singapore, many Singaporeans still require their own set of wheels, often due to work or when they’re starting a family. But the cost of car ownership is often prohibitive with the volatile prices of COE tacked onto the already high purchase price. That’s not even taking into account insurance premiums, road tax, ERP, maintenance fees, parking, and of course, fuel costs.
Spend Less for More Fuel Savings
While many factors are beyond our control, one way to save is by spending less on fuels. But parents often need to ferry their kids up and down every day – to school, to tuition and enrichment classes, to childcare centres and grandparents’ homes, and so on. With all the kilometres racked up each day, the more discounts on fuel, the better!
If you don’t already have the DBS Esso Card, then it’s time to jump on that bandwagon. For one thing, you get attractive savings on premium petrol – the latest promotion boasts savings of up to 27.6%!
And even if you don’t have the DBS Esso Card, all other DBS Cardholders still enjoy up to 24.9% savings when you fuel up at Esso.
Paying for Premium Petrol Pays
Another way to save on car maintenance costs is to keep your vehicle in good running condition. This is particularly important when you have your little darlings in the backseat. As a parent, your family’s safety is your priority and one of the ways to ensure the vehicle runs smoothly is to use premium petrol.
Just like your family, your car performs best when it’s cared for. Esso Synergy™ Supreme+ protects your engines and helps provide a deeper engine clean as you drive. This means higher engine efficiency and better fuel economy – yes, your petrol actually takes you farther! It contains a friction modifier additive and corrosion inhibitor to help reduce wear and tear on the engine. Esso Synergy™ Supreme+ also improves engine responsiveness, meaning a better performing and smoother driving experience.
