Fuel efficiency in a car is one of the major factors to put into consideration when purchasing a car.

One would expect that for a country so bless by God with vast natural resources such as crude, we would enjoy the cheapest fuel rate in the world.

Nigeria stands at 10th place according to some researchers and even upwards in the top 10 countries in the world with the biggest oil reserves.

However, the price of petroleum which has become the most used in Nigeria due to many factors has been known to fluctuate since time immemorial.

Due to the removal of the current subsidy, the price of fuel has been quite stable than it has ever been but also it has made sure the commodity has become quite expensive. We currently buy fuel at a costlier price than even countries who have 0 oil reserve.

While the concept of buying a car is a good one, there are a lot of hassles and responsibilities which comes in the process.

One of the major challenges which have faced by car owners are now the price or fuel, this has made people to seek cars with less/minimal fuel consumption before attempting to purchase a car.
