THINGS TO CONSIDER
BUYING OR HIRING A VEHICLE

People and car manufacturers are becoming more aware of the damage being done by fuel emissions and changing attitudes and lifestyles also reflect this growing trend. There are a number of disabled adapted cars Solihull on the market now that are more friendly to the environment being more clean and cheap to run.

If you think that you will do your bit for the environment and buy a ‘greener’ vehicle then cars with a C02 emission of up to 120g/km are considered to be low emission vehicles as per the Government banding.

For disabled adapted cars Solihull The following tips will help reduce your carbon footprint:

  • Make sure that you don’t over rev the engine. If you drive a diesel vehicle change gear at 2,000 rpm and for petrol driven vehicles change gear at £2,500 rpm.
  • Make sure you always observe the speed limit (obviously this should apply to every driver on the road). Fast driving will produce more emissions and you could use up to more than 15% fuel if you drive at 70 miles an hour instead of 50 miles per hour.
  • If you are approaching a queue of traffic decrease your speed slowly as braking sharply/stopping/starting will use more fuel.
  • Try to reduce the air-conditioning as using this when not strictly necessary will use more fuel and consequently the vehicle will emit more CO2.
  • Always make sure your tyres have the correct pressure as under-inflated tyres will need to work harder and therefore the engine will produce more emissions.
  • If you are likely to be stood idle for more than 3 minutes and, unless your vehicle does so automatically, switch the engine off.
  • Make sure that you are not carrying any unnecessary clutter and luggage in your disabled adapted cars Solihull thus reducing the workload of your engine.
  • Keep all windows shut when you travel at high speed (not over 70!) in order to use less fuel.
