Many drivers are going green, buying electric or hybrid vehicles, but even if you have an inefficient petrol or diesel car, you can reduce the amount of pollution coming out of your exhaust.

First things first, you’ll need to change your driving style. Go easy on the gas pedal, don’t brake too much and always try to keep the car rolling, rather than stop and start driving. Next up, make sure your car is in tune. Check tyre pressure to make sure it’s correct, check water and oil levels to keep you engine in tip top condition and make sure there are no leaks.

You can also ‘go green’ by driving less often. This one requires more commitment, but if you bike to work, or walk to your nearest train or bus station, you’ll be helping the environment. There’s no doubt that the best way to go green is by driving less, unless of course you have an electric car.
