Driver Con­di­tion­ing

Matamata Chronicle - - Motoring -

Here’s an ex­per­i­ment any­one can try – drive as fuel-ef­fi­ciently as pos­si­ble for a week and see what a dif­fer­ence it makes at the bowser.

Mod­i­fy­ing the way we drive cars has long been iden­ti­fied as a way of squeez­ing out fuel-ef­fi­ciency gains with­out hav­ing to spend mil­lions of dol­lars on mak­ing cars more frugal.
