Tame your inner roadhog

Aggressive driving wastes fuel, risks lives and ups everybody's stress levels. Calm, sane, smooth driving improves your mileage.

The road is no place to vent anger and frustration - or to indulge Formula 1 fantasies.

Aggressive driving - speeding, rapid acceleration and sudden braking - wastes fuel, risks lives and raises everybody's stress levels.

Calm, sane, smooth driving improves your mileage from about 5% around town to 30% or better on the highway.
