10tips ecodriving forbetterqualitydriving


Published on

Eco-driving is a term used to describe energy efficient use of vehicles.
Eco-driving is a smart way of driving, which contributes to reduce fuel consumption, the emission of greenhouse gases and accident rates, as well as greater safety, comfort and fuel cost savings.
Eco-driving is an adapted driving style, which best fits modern engine technology. Eco-driving means smart, smooth and safe driving at lower engine speeds, which saves fuel on average without an increase of travel time.
Consuming energy/fuel costs money and causes CO2 emissions and air pollutants with negative environmental impacts. Especially driving with high engine revolutions (high RPM) raises the fuel consumption significantly. Also avoidable sequences of acceleration and braking will lower fuel efficiency. In the last decades, engine technology and performance of cars and trucks has improved rapidly, while most drivers have not adapted their driving style. Eco-driving represents a driving culture which suits to modern engines and makes best use of advanced vehicle technologies.
