    How to save money and drive green at the same time:
     

  • Weight - Take out of the car anything you don't need especially if its heavy, like roof boxes and roof racks.
     
  • Speed - Reduce your speed to at least the speed limit and use the cruise control if available.
     
  • Anticipation - Avoid harsh use of the brake and accelerator by looking further ahead, where safe try to keep the car moving. 
     
  • Short Shift - Change up at 2,000 rpm in a diesel or 2,500 rpm in a petrol car.
     
  • Start / Stop - Drive off as soon as you start and switch off as soon as you stop. If you are stuck in traffic then switch off.
     
  • Tyres - Check the pressures at least once a month. 
     
  • Maintenance - Regular servicing will also ensure you emit less carbon dioxide.
     
  • Pay less - Use a price check service like www.petrolprices.com and loyalty / cashback promotions.
     
  • Intelligent travel - Do you need to travel, share a car, avoid travelling at busy times, plan your route and allow more time so you don't need to rush.

    Include all of the above and you can save 30% on your fuel costs and emit less carbon dioxide, create less noise and less wear and tear on the car.
