Why eco driving?.

Eco driving is a rising trend across Europe as more and more motorist become aware that by changing the way they drive can reduce their fuel consumption by as much as 25%, it is also a reality that it is included in the learner driving test now.
This style of driving leads to a relaxed posture behind the steering wheel, leading to more comfort for both driver and passengers.
So naturally the earlier you start to learn eco-driving the more natural and logical it all seems.

Eco driving is not a completely different way of driving its the small changes that make a difference.
• Enhanced hazard perception and awareness skills.
• Reducing emissions and noise output.
• Reduces fuel consumption.
• Less wear and tear on the car.
• Reducing servicing costs.
• A smoother drive alleviates stress and helps traffic flow.
• And much much more.

Eco Driving for qualified drivers.
We all like to think we are good drivers, but did you know that a few little improvements to the way you drive could reduce your annual fuel costs by as much as 10% and in some cases 25%?.
It's called eco-driving, the outcome of a DSA trial indicated that the Eco Driver used 1.5 litres less fuel than the Non-Eco Driver over a 100Km (approx.62 miles) journey - at 80p/litre (2004 prices) a saving of 1.20. This might not seem a lot, but for an average driver covering 12,000 miles/year it's a saving of 232. For 36,000 miles it's a saving of almost 700! Eco-driving could also save you even more in the future with savings though less wear and tear on your vehicle.

Adopting an eco-driving style is easy and once you've mastered it, not only will you start to make real savings, but you will also be doing your bit for the environment.
That is because eco-driving means driving your car more efficiently, doing this means your car will produce less carbon dioxide (CO2), the main gas contributing to climate change.
So not only will your emissions be reduced, your engine noise levels will be reduced (lower engine revs) making your local environment a much pleasanter place to be.
