Piyush: Start Saving Fuel For Better Environment

Do you know that India consumes almost 91258707 liters of fuel per day! This makes it almost 1056 liters per second! Imagine if we consume such a huge amount of fuel in one day, how much gallons of fuel are consumed daily across the world.

Almost everything we use is dependent on fuel. Life without fuel is almost impossible to imagine. But, if the pace of consuming fuel remains the same, then we will surely face a fuel crisis in the future. We all know that fuel is a non-renewable resource. In other words, increasing usage depletes their presence within the earth.

So, there will come a time when fuel will no longer be available. Due to a lack of fuel, it is being imported from other countries at a very high price. This can alter the economic development in India. Even in petrol pumps, we find that the cost of petrol is rising gradually. We are also familiar with the tactics played in petrol pumps - this is because of the rising demands for petroleum.

Coal too has a huge demand across the globe. Many developing countries, like India, are meeting almost 60% of their energy demand from coal. But, the burning of coal can produce energy and harmful substances that can be mixed in the air. This in-return, cam affect our health is a bad manner. Thus, fuel conservation must be given a place in society. The faster mode of transport and industrialization has reformed our life. Having cars and vehicles are now a symbol of pride and self-respect. But, our environment is being affected due to the combustion of fuels by these automotive. And its consequences are global warming, ozone layer depletion, damage to plants and animals and many more.

Fuel can be conserved by the proper use of vehicles. Not only in vehicles but, fuel is also used for cooking purposes. We all believe that electric stoves are the best, as they do not produce any residue when used. But, have you ever thought that from where the electricity, used to heat the coil in a stove, is generated? It is produced by burning fossil fuels. Also, it requires special utensils and the cost of installation is also high.

Today, we all are in a race to waste our natural resources just because of our negligence and ignorance. Not only petrol or diesel but all other types of fuel such as natural gas, propane, and oil are going to vanish very soon.

Here are some tips on Saving Fuel for Better Environment and Health:


  • Fuel consuming vehicles must not be used for near distances.
  • Bicycles and walking must be encouraged.
  • Cleaning the engine oil after a certain mileage can help a lot in saving fuel.
  • Covering pans while cooking can help in conserving propane.
  • Switching off the electrical appliances when not in use and using good quality of electric wires can not only save electricity but can cut your electricity bill too. 

Governments of all countries must start using renewable sources of energy. The present rate at which fossil fuels are being used is quite alarming. There won't be left anything for the coming generations.

We need to put our acts together and must follow the principles of sustainable development. After all, it is our responsibility to leave a healthy and prosperous planet. Being parents it is our moral responsibility. Let's take care of our planet and use fossil fuels wisely and prudently!
