Environmental responsibility

We believe that together we can make a serious contribution to our environment. This will enable future generations to enjoy the planet we live in.

Please take into consideration the following when driving your vehicle.

All cars on the road today contribute to climate change because their engines burn fuel and therefore produce carbon dioxide (CO2) every time we drive.

Yet you can easily reduce these emissions and save money too. By following a few simple tips and suggestions you can reduce your engine’s workload, which means it will burn less fuel and produce less CO2.

1)Before you set off – Pump up your tyres
Under-inflated tyres create more resistance when your car is moving. That means your engine has to work harder, so more fuel is used and more CO2 emissions are produced. Check and adjust your tyre pressures regularly and also before long journeys. This will also help to increase the life of your tyres.
Under-inflated tyres increase CO2 but over inflated tyres can be unsafe, so check your car manual for the correct tyre pressure. Remember, a car with a heavier load may need different air pressure in the tyres.

2)Clear out any extra weight
Clutter in your boot is extra weight your engine has to carry around. By removing it, you could reduce your engine’s workload. Remove roof racks and carriers when not in use to reduce the drag factor as this too will mean you burn less fuel and so cut your CO2 emissions.

3)Have your vehicle serviced regularly
An under-serviced engine may have to work harder as it’s less likely to be operating at its optimum efficiency. This can be inefficient, which can reduce fuel economy. Service requirements can vary from car to car so do check the manufacturer’s recommendations for servicing in the owner’s manual supplied with the vehicle or with the vehicle manufacturer.

4)Drive at an appropriate speed
Driving above the speed limit is illegal, but also means you use more fuel, and emit more CO2. Staying within the 70mph speed limit on motorways can bring savings of around 10% for your fuel bill compared to driving at 80mph.

5)Speed up and slow down smoothly
Every time you stop then start again in a traffic queue, the engine uses more fuel and therefore produces more CO2. Keep an eye on the traffic ahead and slow down early by gently lifting your foot off the accelerator while keeping the car in gear.

6)Change gears at lower revs
Revving does not help to warm up a modern car engine or improve its performance. In fact, over revving simply wastes fuel and increases engine wear. Using your gears wisely by changing up a little earlier can reduce revs, and so reduce fuel usage. If you drive a diesel car, try changing up a gear when the rev counter reaches 2000rpm. For a petrol car, change up at 2500rpm.

7)Avoid leaving your engine running
When the engine is idling you’re wasting fuel and adding to CO2 emissions. If you’re likely to be at a standstill for more than three minutes, simply switch off the engine.

8)Don’t use air conditioning unless you really need it
Using your air conditioning can increase your fuel consumption so keep usage to a minimum to save on fuel and CO2 emissions. At speeds above 50-60mph it is generally more efficient to keep windows closed, even if this means using the aircon, as open windows will increase drag.
