Eco-driving is a range of everyday practices that allow the motorist to optimise their fuel consumption and CO2emissions.
Optimise the use of your
With a manual gearbox, move off gently,change up without waiting and drive by changing up quite soon. If your vehicle has the system, the gear shift indicator invites youto change up; it is displayed in the instrumentpanel, follow its instructions.
With an automatic or electronic gearbox, stay in Drive "D"or Auto "A"
, according to the type of gearbox, without pressing theaccelerator pedal heavily or suddenly.
Maintain a safe distance between vehicles, useengine braking rather than the brake pedal,and press the accelerator progressively. These practices contribute towards a reduction in fuel consumption and CO2 emissions and also helpsreduce the background traffic noise.
If your vehicle has cruise control, make use of the system at speeds above 25 mph (40 km/h)when the traffic is flowing well.
Control the use of your electrical equipment
Before moving off, if the passenger compartment is too warm, ventilate it byopening the windows and air vents before using the air conditioning.
Above 30 mph (50 km/h), close the windows and leave the air vents open.
Remember to make use of equipment that canhelp keep the temperature in the passenger compartment down (sunroof and windowblinds...). Switch off the air conditioning, unless it has automatic digital regulation, as soon as thedesired temperature is attained.
Switch off the demisting and defrostingcontrols, if not automatic.
Switch off the heated seat as soon as possible.
Switch off the headlamps and front foglamps when the level of light does not require their use.
Avoid running the engine before moving off,particularly in winter; your vehicle will warmup much faster while driving.
As a passenger, if you avoid connecting your multimedia devices (film, music, videogame...), you will contribute towards limitingthe consumption of electrical energy, and soof fuel.
Disconnect your por table devices beforeleaving the vehicle.

Limit the causes of excess
Spread loads throughout the vehicle; place the heaviest items in the bottom of the boot,as close as possible to the rear seats.Limit the loads carried in the vehicle and reduce wind resistance (roof bars, roof rack, bicycle carrier, trailer...). Use a roof box inpreference.Remove roof bars and roof racks after use.
At the end of winter, remove snow tyres and refit your summer tyres.
Observe the recommendations
Check the tyre pressures regularly, when cold, referring to the label in the door aper ture, driver's side.Carry out this check in par ticular:- before a long journey,- at each change of season,- after a long period out of use. Don't forget the spare wheel and the tyres onany trailer or caravan.
Have your vehicle ser viced regularly (engine oil, oil filter, air filter...) and obser ve the schedule of operations recommended by the manufacturer.
When refuelling, do not continue after the 3 rd
cut-off of the nozzle to avoid any over flow.
At the wheel of your new vehicle, it is only after the first 1 800 miles (3 000 kilometres) that you will see the fuel consumption settledown to a consistent average.
