Frugal fuel tips

So we’ve probably seen the news about the hefty rise in fuel in April, and then probably again in October.

I’m feeling pretty worried about the inevitable big bill, as I know many others are.

Having just read here about ‘hay box cookers’,and also refilling the kettle after emptying to capture the warmth for the next boil, I’m wondering what other tips and tricks people might have up their sleeves to keep the bills down? 

It would be great to hear them! 

Bread, and roses too.
