Company car drivers go slow to save fuel

The importance of fuel efficiency is is becoming a greater concern to all drivers but more importantly to business users a  recent survey found, almost two out of three company car users drive slower as a result of high fuel prices, while a fifth actively try to limit their mileage. According to ALD Automotive, of the 1000 UK business drivers surveyed, 50% shop around for the cheapest fuel available, 65% drive slower and more smoothly in an effort to save fuel and 20% drive fewer miles.

‘It‘s no surprise that drivers are taking additional steps to save fuel, whether it be through shopping around for the cheapest price, or changing their driving behavior can play in helping reduce fuel consumption.’ The average UK fuel price is at a record high of £142.42/litre for petrol and £147.84/litre for diesel.
