driving style and low fuel consumption have far more in common
than might be expected
In spite of all the efforts made
being to develop more and more economical vehicles, the biggest
factor influencing fuel consumption is still the driver him- (or
her-) self. While technical advances may yet be able to bring
about reductions in fuel consumption of a further 15 percent (for
example by the incorporation of a hybrid drive), any driver can
potentially achieve the same effect just by handling his or her
vehicle correctly, with an awareness of what affects fuel
Dont waste valuable
Most drivers handle their vehicles
uneconomically, for two reasons: firstly, they are rarely aware
of the techniques available to them for reducing fuel consumption.
Secondly, many are influenced by a number of popular
misconceptions, for example the belief that driving cannot be
both economical and sporty, or even that economical driving
creates a hindrance to other road users.
The truth is, there is not as much
difference as one might think between a sporty driving style and
one that promotes low fuel consumption. In both cases, wasting
resources, rather than channelling them into the forward motion
of the vehicle, is to be avoided. In short, its all about
making the best possible use of the available momentum.
