REDUCE WEIGHT & DRAG
Don’t drive with roof racks and boxes when you don’t need to, and remove any unnecessary weight from your car to save on fuel consumption.

USE HIGHER GEARS
Where possible, drive using higher gears, so your engine doesn’t have to work as hard.

DRIVE SMOOTHLY
Avoid jolty driving by using gentle acceleration, analysing the road well ahead of you and slowing early ahead of traffic lights to potentially save you from stopping.

CHECK YOUR TYRE PRESSURES
Under-inflated tyres can increase fuel consumption, so be sure to regularly check if your tyres have the correct pressure.

BUY NEARLY NEW
You’ll avoid the extra usage of resources that comes with manufacturing and shipping brand new cars, but you’ll still have access to the more environmentally-friendly technology of modern engines – the perfect middle ground!
