We all know that road vehicles burn fuel and money, but did you know that by making some simple changes to the way you drive you can reduce the amount of fuel your car consumes?
Road transport in the UK is the third largest source of greenhouse gases and accounts for 20% of the UK's total carbon emissions. Air pollution, climate change and acid rain are just some of the problems caused by carbon emissions. Avoiding the use of your car altogether is a big ask, but we can do our bit to limit the amount of carbon we emit.
Smarter driving is about reducing fuel use and thinking differently about how and when you use a car. Becoming fuel efficient will not only reduce your carbon footprint, but will also save you money.
Many people think about the cost of driving as the cost of fuel, but it’s really much more than that. In addition to the upfront cost of your car, you need to think about insurance, vehicle tax, servicing, general maintenance and parking charges. Every journey you make with your car costs you money – probably more than you think.
