Fuel Saving Tips

Downhill overtaking

When on a motorway or 'A' road, try to time your overtaking to when you going downhill, even slightly downhill. It's tempting to overtake all the slow HGVs when they are struggling up inclines, but waiting until the next level or downhill section means you can pick up speed more easily and with less fuel consumption.
