I got my car tax renewal notification through the post yesterday and am about to renew it online but I just wanted to put some thoughts together about eco-driving. What prompted me to do this due to receiving my car tax renewal? Well, they sent me a leaflet about it titled “Be a smarter driver and save money”. It lists a whole load of hints and tips to save money by saving fuel. They reckon that you could save between £250-£350 a year.
Unfortunately, I won’t be saving £250-£350 a year as I already follow 90% of what they say and the other 10% I have a bit of a problem with. In brief, this is what they suggest:
- Drive smoothly – avoid excessive acceleration and sharp braking (knew that)
- Don’t coast towards traffic jams or traffic lights – stay in gear when slowing down to stop. It does not save fuel…
