Top Tips for Driving Green and Saving Fuel
1.Be a Smooth Operator
Fast accelerating and braking burns more fuel, drive smoothly with light feet to help fuel efficiency.
2.Roll down to Cool down
Air conditioning reduces fuel efficiency by up to 10%, so roll your windows down instead.
Don’t sit with your engine running, turn it off when you are sat waiting in your car, or shift to neutral at traffic lights. Did you know that 20 seconds of idling emits more CO2 than turning your car off and back on again when you are ready to drive.
Driving more than 55mph reduces your fuel efficiency by almost 15%!
For every 50kg of weight, your fuel consumption is increased by around 2%. Removing unnecessary weight from your car will reduce how much fuel you are using for the same trips.
