Driving Tips Brochure Cuts Motorists' Fuel Bills

Motorists can slash their fuel costs by 10-20% a year with the help of a new driving tips brochure available from service stations and the AA.

The ‘7 Habits of Highly Efficient Drivers’ was published by the Energy Efficiency and Conservation Authority (EECA) in conjunction with BP, Challenge, Gull, Mobil, Shell and the AA. Brochures are available from those outlets.

Minister of Energy Pete Hodgson took delivery of the driving tips brochures for circulation around ministerial offices.

“The advice in the brochure will help motorists operate their vehicles more efficiently and therefore more cheaply,” he said.

“Not only is this good for drivers’ pocket, but there are also huge environmental gains to be made. Energy conservation is also becoming increasingly important.”

The brochure contains a range of driving tips covering driving practices, vehicle maintenance and trip planning.

“Some of these tips are quite simple but surprisingly effective,” said Mr Hodgson.

These tips are available on EECA’s website www.eeca.govt.nz
