Survey finds drivers changing driving habits to save on fuel


A survey by a national breakdown company has highlighted just how UK drivers are changing their driving habits in a bid to cut down on fuel costs.

The survey, carried out by Green Flag, shed light on the fact that over one third of British drivers (39%) have changed their behaviour behind the wheel to try to save money on wasting fuel whilst in the driver's seat. Driving behaviour such as decreasing heavy acceleration and sudden breaking are two of the factors that many are carrying out to help with fuel consumption.

UK drivers are now even cutting back on the amount of journeys they carry out; a staggering 41% of people questioned admitted to being more apprehensive when it came to unnecessary journeys with a further 11% commenting they now make more use of public transport such as buses.

There are plenty of other ways to save money on fuel costs; upgrading your current vehicle to one of the many Ford cars for sale can help with petrol or diesel economy. The Ford motor company have been at the forefront of developing some of the most economic engines, for example just recently their EcoBoost engine scooped numerous awards for its performance and economy.
