What can Drivers do to save money, reduce fuel consumption and emissions?
To help you cruise your way to cheaper driving, here are our top green driving tips:
- Check your tyre pressure regularly. Under-inflated tyres can increase your fuel consumption by up to 3%.
- Buy low-rolling-resistance (LRR) replacement tyres. LRR tyres are specially designed to improve a vehicle's fuel economy by as much as 4%.
- Avoid carrying unnecessary weight in the boot as this will create drag and lose you money. Every 25kg weight increases fuel consumption by 1%.
- Avoid using air conditioning if possible, it increases fuel consumption by 5-10%.
- Drive with the windows closed, to reduce drag on the vehicle.
- Switch the engine off if you think you are likely to be stationary for more than 3 minutes.
- When starting up, there is no need to allow the engine to warm up. It is better to just drive off.
- Gentle pressure on the accelerator is fine however, hard acceleration and harsh braking uses up to 30% more fuel.
- Use higher gears wherever possible; a vehicle travelling at 37 mph in third gear uses 25 per cent more fuel than it would at the same speed in fifth gear. If you drive a diesel vehicle try changing up a gear at 2,000rpm. For a petrol vehicle change up at 2,500rpm.
