Fuel-saving tips: Drivers are urged to follow a little-known ventilation trick to cool down the car

Other ways to ensure a car stays as cool as possible include parking in the shade and purchasing a reflective windshield.

Mrs Potter said: “Parking in a shaded area, as opposed to a spot in the sun, will help the interior of the car stay cooler.

“Buy a reflective windshield, these sit behind your visors and keep the sun from shining on the car and heating up the interior.

“These actions will help the air inside the car feel cooler, which will mean less effort is needed to cool the interior with air conditioning, saving fuel.
