MENUMENU

Other motoring savings and environmental facts

Walk or cycle shorter journeys​

​7% of car journeys in the UK are less than 1 mile. If you walked or cycled you would keep fitter and save £60 per year in fuel costs, equivalent to 10kg CO₂.

Car share

​Peter Kay had it right in the recent comedy ‘Car Share’. More people travelling together reduces costs for everyone in the car and reduces individual CO₂ imprint. If you share a 20 mile round trip to work 5 times a week with a friend, it will save each person in the car around £6 a week.

Service your car annually

​Looking after your car can help improve fuel economy a little, but is also important for safety and the longevity of your vehicle.
