Drivers Effect on Fuel ConsumptionDriving Efficiency & Safety in the Fleet Car SectorAn aggressive driving style can lead to an increase in fuel consumption of 10-12% above average.
In contrast,an energy aware driving stylecan save up to 13% on fuel consumption and is better for the environment and for your wallet.
Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland's(SEAI)Fleets are missing out on substantial savings by ignoring a major factor affecting fuel economy: the driver.
The impact of training on driving style is clear, drivers are more aware of other drivers actions and they have a greater appreciation of risk and are more focused on fleet efficiency.
