Drive less like a boy racer, more like a real racer. Keep down the revs to get more miles out of your tank and start to drive with the smooth style of Jenson Button.
By driving smoothly, steadily and stylishly, removing any excess baggage, easing off the air con and keeping your car well serviced you could save £220 a year at the pump. You’ll also increase the lifespan of your car, improve safety and could reduce emissions by up to 35%.
Road transport in the UK produces around a quarter of our national CO2 emissions. By driving a little more efficiently you can dramatically reduce your fuel use, saving up to 440 kgCO2 a year – the equivalent of driving the 620 miles from London to Geneva!1
Driving more efficiently can save you £220 a year2 – that’s not to be sniffed at.
My car is quite economic anyway but with the number of miles I drive a week it makes sense to drive a bit more carefully and its better for the environment - win win
This one was a no-brainer, we should all be driving like this anyway.
A great idea and really concentrates the mind. Will continue to 'smart drive'!
This has been a really useful exercise as I have been made to think about how I drive my car. I can honestly say I have saved a couple of pounds per week on fuel.
I did sometimes forget, but the added incentive of saving money made me do quite well at driving economically.
I've tried very hard to keep to this pledge as I'm very enthusiastic in any ways to help me save money and helping the environment. I'll definitely be keeping this pledge going.
