Driver behaviour has the single biggest impact on fuel consumption, maintenance and safety

What the Experts Say:
“Driver behaviour has the single biggest impact on fuel consumption. Investing in in-depth and on-going driver training will therefore quickly pay off and cut costs. To date, 7 out of 10 European Haulage companies have invested in eco driving training”
(Driving Fuel Efficiency in Europe’s Road Freight Transport - A Goodyear Dunlop Fleet Symposium) January 2012
“Even an experienced driver can improve his or her fuel economy by up to 10%”
“With the cost of fuel, damage and downtime of paramount importance to most operations, drivers who adopt a safe and fuel-efficient driving style are to be valued”
An improvement of just 3% in fuel consumption alone means a saving of £1,800 – for every driver trained.”
"Using driving techniques that improve fuel consumption also results in vehicles having less impact on the environment as well as potentially reducing operating costs in terms of unscheduled maintenance and repairs.
That uptime can be optimised and even improved by using driving techniques that deliver improved fuel economy is an established fact. Utilising good driver techniques is incontrovertibly good for our customers, their customers and drivers of our vehicles."
