Make sure that your Mini Cooper's motor is kept running properly. Perform regular maintenance, such as oil changes and repair problems that occur. If your motor is not in good condition, it will have to work harder to power the car and will use more gasoline as a result.
Have low rolling resistance tires installed on the Mini Cooper. These tires are designed to reduce friction between the tires and road. They allow the car to use less power to turn the tires. You will also want to make sure tires are properly aired up and aligned to reduce the amount of drag they put on the Mini Cooper.
Don't leave the Mini Cooper idling for more than a minute or two. Idling vehicles use more gasoline then parked vehicles and produce emissions that can harm the environment.
Roll down your windows instead of running the air conditioner. Running the air conditioner requires your Mini Cooper's motor to work harder and consume more fuel.
Plan your trips so that you can accomplish multiple tasks on the same outing, rather than making repeated trips for multiple items. You can also try parking your car in a central location and then walking to different stores within a reasonable radius of the parking spot.
