1.OPERATE EFFICIENTLY: Upshift early- accelerating faster, but avoid speeding!

2.SAVE ENERGY: Keep your brakes cold (use steady speed, drive with foresight). If buying a new car opt for a hybrid power train regenerating deceleration/braking energy.

3.NO COLD IDLING: Warm yourself up, but not the engine (start up – drive off ).

4.STOP ENERGY CONSUMERS: Shut everything off, what is not needed (switch the engine off, A/C, Light, Radio... ). With new cars the day light should be of LED type.
