By becoming an economical driver, you not only help the planet, you can also cut your fuel and motoring costs massively. Making an effort to do this is more important than ever in today’s culture.
Slow Down And Drive Sensibly
By slowing down just 10mph, you could save a massive 25% in fuel. On a smaller road, slowing from 70mph to 60mph could save you a further 10%. It’s also important that you read the road ahead to avoid accidents and pre-empt what other drivers are going to do. The less breaking you do, the less fuel you use.
Prepare Your Car For Each Journey You Take
By preparing your car for each journey you take, you can lighten your load and use less fuel. Getting rid of a roof rack or roof box if you don’t need it will make your car more streamlined too.
Maintain Your Car
Keeping your car well maintained is a simple way to become more economical. You’ll use less fuel if you stay on top of your car maintenance, but make sure you also check out your tyre pressures and use the correct oil for your car.
