Driver and fuel efficiency training

Thu, 27 Apr 2017 09:24:00 BST

University staff are invited to participate in driver efficiency training in May. The University has hired FuelGood driver training to carry out five days of driver and fuel efficiency training.

The FuelGood driver training provides participants with driving techniques to help them save on fuel costs and to reduce carbon emissions. 12.1% is the average MPG improvement seen on the day of training. Studies suggest that a typical driver will maintain savings of 1-6%, or £20-£110, across the entire year. Over the last five years, FuelGood driver training has helped more than 350 organisations (about 12,500 drivers) to save money, reduce their emissions and improve their sustainability and awareness.

Fuel efficient driver training can provide the following benefits:

  • Reduced fuel consumption and carbon emissions.
  • Reduced risk of accidents while driving.
  • Lower risk of vehicle wear and tear on tyres, brakes and clutches.
  • Opportunities to demonstrate your commitment to the environment.

There will be eight, 50 minute slots of one-on-one tuition each day. Members of staff should email the Environmental Sustainability Team to find out more.
