Some tips for ultra eco-friendly driving

  • Tip No. 1
    Optimise fuel efficiency (change up before 2000 rpm to prevent over-revving the engine and change down at 1000 rpm to prevent under-revving).
  • Tip No. 2
    Drive smoothly (keep an eye on traffic around you, respect braking distances, avoid accelerating sharply).
  • Tip No. 3
    Switch off the engine when you have to stop for a while (e.g. at a level crossing).
  • Tip No. 4
    Pull away without using the accelerator.
  • Tip No. 5
    Only use the air-conditioning (and all electrical equipment in general, such as the rear defroster) when it's really necessary.
  • Tip No. 6
    Respect speed limits (and especially when they are restricted on peak pollution days).
  • Tip No. 7
    Avoid wind resistance whenever possible (loads on the roof, open windows, etc.).
  • Tip No. 8
    Check your tyre pressure regularly.
  • Tip No. 9
    Choose a vehicle suited to your needs (easy to do at Europcar, check out our EuropcarClub options).
  • Tip No. 10
    Don't throw anything out of the windows (and don't let your passengers do so). Europcar reminds its customers that all its cars are non-smoking.
