Are your drivers behaving optimally ? We have 5 tips for good driver behaviour.
1) Follow Speed Limit All The Time
By slowing down to the limit and avoiding unnecessary speeding, you are not only being a safer and more responsible driver, but you can also save a lot more fuel than you may think. Just by driving at 70 mph rather than 85 mph you can save up to 25% fuel.
2) Decrease Engine Idling
Avoid leaving the engine running to heat up the car or to keep the enrgine running when making a pit stop, and instead drive away immediately when starting from cold. By idling to heat the engine, you waste fuel and can cause rapid engine damage.
3) Anticipate What's Ahead
By looking ahead and anticipating traffic and road conditions, it's possible to drive smoother and avoid sudden acceleration and braking, which in turn can reduce your fuel consumption, and the wear&tear on your vehicle, and it also helps prevent accidents.
4) Use Your Vehicle's Technologies
Where possible use cruise control to maintain a steady speed, instead of using the accelerator pedal. It can not only improve your comfort while driving, it can also improve your fuel consumption as well.
5) Avoid Sudden Breaking
By avoiding sudden breaking you can reduce the wear&tear on your vehicle, as well as potential accidents.
