10 Top Tips for Fuel Efficient Driving

Drive in the right gear Driving in a gear lower than you need wastes fuel, and letting the engine labour in top gear on hills and corners is also wasteful.

Drive smoothly Stop/start driving is much less efficient and more polluting than driving at a constant speed. Avoid travelling during peak-hours and on congested roads whenever possible.
