• Driving your car: green tips part 3

    Clear out any extra weight

    Remove unnecessary clutter and roof racks. This will reduce your car’s weight and air resistance.

    Have your vehicle serviced regularly

    Well-maintained cars in good condition tend to run more efficiently. Check how often your car should be serviced by looking in the owner’s manual or contacting the vehicle manufacturer.

    If you carry out any work yourself, remember that waste from car maintenance (like old engine oil) is often hazardous. Dispose of it safely using council waste facilities.

    Plan your route

    Planning your route in advance, and using a map or satnav (satellite navigation system), can help you take the shortest route and avoid getting lost.
