Welcome to EcoModder.
I would like to drive more ecofriendly. How can i achieve this.
It depends on 'use case'. How much weight how far at what speed[s]?

Short answer: Lurk more. What had you learned before your first post? Have you tried the search function?

Unfortunately, Chrille looks like a spam account. I hate it when they waste good members' time.

I think the US Government thinks the best way to do this is scrap it. *sarcasm* :P
