Fuel Efficiency

These are the top tips for fuel efficient driving:

  • Always carry out your pre-start checks. These include items that directly influence fuel consumption such as tyre pressures and fuel leaks
  • Know the characteristics of the engine in your vehicle and optimum driving techniques to get the most out of it
  • Keep revs in the ‘green band’ wherever possible
  • Read the road ahead. This will enable you to accelerate and brake safely
  • Use the right gear for the situation and block change as appropriate on both up and down gear changes
  • Use the engine/exhaust brake whenever possible
  • If you have cruise control, make use of it where appropriate
  • Adhere to the speed limit
  • Don’t leave your engine running when parked/loading/unloading
