Thumbs up Quick and Simple ECO-Driving Guide

I found this neat PDF guide from Toyota. I think it would be a great tool for initiating family members and friends to eco-driving. It is an easy read and pretty straight forward. I thought about printing a few pamphlets and offering them to my fellow passengers !


Enjoy !

Nice. I like how they say how much fuel is used under each tip they give.

Very nice, although it would be nice if they also made a US version. We silly 'mercans don't understand these fancy "metric" measurements.

Hmm. some tips are not valid for "hardcore-hypermilers"
* It says accelerate slowly, here consensus says accellerate briskly.
* Also pulse-and-glide (even engine-on pulse-and-coast-in-neutral) is more economical than steady speed cruise. But this tip is not for average Joe - it involves too much work. I enjoy it and I dont get bored and sleepy.

Gentle acceleration and constant steady cruise is a lot better than the general habit of always being completely on one of the pedals.

Baby steps.
