Eco-driving training impacts on fuel costs!

Minor adjustments to driving style can make a considerable impact, delivering savings of up to 15 pence per litre.

For many business fleets, especially those reliant on traditional petrol and diesel vehicles, driving techniques are the most influential factor on fuel costs. You may not be in a position to update your vehicles or change your operating environment but, by upskilling your drivers, your business stands to make significant savings on fuel costs and lower its carbon footprint.

Our eco-driving course has been accredited by the Energy Saving Trust (EST) owing to the key role it can play in achieving these aims. On average, drivers achieve a 12% improvement in their MPG on the day of their training with us, and the EST’s research has shown that the training can deliver average MPG improvements of 6.2% in the longer term.

The benefits don’t end there. Eco-driving techniques also contribute to improved safety: by using early observation skills to maintain momentum, drivers increase their safety margins and enjoy a smoother, more relaxed drive.
