Save 30% on fuel by changing driving habits

It’s possible to drive the same distance in the same time using much less fuel – without cutting your top speed. In the process, you could chop up to 30% off your petrol or diesel costs.

Here are a few pointers to get you started.

  • Accelerate gradually without over-revving. Press harder on the pedal and more fuel flows. Get to the same speed using less power. As a very rough rule, stay under 3,000 revs.
  • Drive in the correct gear. Always drive in the highest gear possible without labouring the engine.
  • Slow naturally. Rather than brake frequently, let your car slow naturally and use its stored momentum.
  • Think about road position. To do all this takes road awareness. The more alert you are, the better you can plan ahead and move gradually.

Your accelerator is a money pump. The harder you press, the more cash is turned into fuel. Your brake is a money burner. Press it, and the speed you paid for converts into heat.
