Green Driving Tips

You can reduce your fuel consumption, save money and reduce your impact on the environment by following a few basic driving rules.

green driving

  • Check your tyre pressure every month - under inflated tyres can increase fuel consumption by up to 4%.
  • Service your vehicle and check the oil level regularly - correctly maintained cars can operate more efficiently and help reduce fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.
  • Remove unnecessary weight from your vehicle - the heavier the vehicle, the harder the engine has to work and the more fuel it will consume.
  • Close windows especially at high speeds and remove roof boxes, racks or bike carriers when not in use - reducing wind resistance will reduce your fuel consumption and can cut emissions by up to 10%.
  • Use air conditioning only when necessary - this can reduce fuel consumption and emissions by up to 5%.
  • Start driving as soon as possible after starting the engine and turn off the engine when stationary for more than one minute - modern engines are designed to enable you to just get in and go, thus reducing fuel consumption.
  • Drive at a reasonable and consistant speed  - driving at high speeds significantly increases fuel consumption and everytime you accelerate or brake hard your engine uses more fuel and produces more CO2.
  • When accelerating change up gears as early as possible - higher gears are more economical for fuel consumption.
  • Try to anticipate traffic flow - look ahead as far as possible to help avoid unnecessary braking.
  • Consider car sharing for work or leisure.
