Here at Leasing Options we understand just what scope of damage the millions of cars on UK roads do to the air that we breathe every day. And that is why we have decided to dedicate today’s blog to encourage our fellow man to partake in the reduction of our carbon footprint. We’re going green!
Although we cannot change the masses of damage that has already been done to our environment, we can decrease a significant amount of the CO2 emissions that are released from our cars, in turn reducing our carbon footprint. The most prevalent manner in which this can be achieved is by reducing the amount of fuel we frivolously waste through engine idling. Ordinarily, as we wait in long slow-moving lines of traffic or in the drive through lanes of McDonalds, we are unknowingly releasing excess CO2 emissions. So the team here at Leasing Options compiled a short list of golden rules for eco-friendly driving!
Keep a Steady Speed – Nothing consumes fuel faster than a rapid two minute race to get home, only to be stopped by a traffic light half way down the road. So keep a steady speed for steady fuel consumption.
Anticipate Traffic – If you can see people braking ahead, reduce your speed right away.
Avoid Carrying Unnecessary Weight – As true as it for cars as it is for human beings, do not cart around needless amounts of weight. Remove your roof rack if it is not in use at the moment.
Check Your Tyre Pressure Regularly – Keeping your tyres inflated at the right pressure reduces chances of excess fuel consumption, low tyre pressure is a sure fire way to eat up more than the necessary amount of fuel.
