The UK’s Driving Standards Agency has proved that better driving habits can reduce fuel consumption by over 8% – and that’s an 8% saving on fuel costs as well as carbon emissions.

Drive smoothly and gently, avoiding hard braking or acceleration and stick to the speed limits. For more information, check out this useful guide from the AA.
