Share |

EcoDriving Automakers have recently announced a new EcoDriving program, a comprehensive nationwide effort to help save you money at the gas pump, reduce fuel use and cut carbon emissions. It’s a way to save you money and help the environment at absolutely no cost, all it takes is a few changes to your driving habits.


For example, stop tailgating, know the proper way to accelerate and brake, use synchronized traffic lights to your advantage, drive at the optimum highway speed, and understand when to use air conditioning can all help reduce fuel consumption.


The Alliance of Automobile Manufacturers, the group of automakers responsible for launching the program, has also offered maintenance tips as part of the EcoDriving program. Some of the maintenance practices include, knowing which motor oil to use, understanding the importance of tire pressure and understanding aerodynamics.


EcoDriving produces the highest mileage from every single vehicle, regardless of size, make and age. If half of all drivers nationwide practice moderate levels of EcoDriving annual carbon dioxide emissions could be reduced by about 100 million tons, equivalent of heating and powering 8.5 million households. Now that is a tremendous impact!
