RED Driving Instructors take part in Esso MPG challenge
RED’s Driving Instructors were challenged by Esso UK to see who could achieve the lowest overall MPG using fuel-efficient driving techniques.
The car used for the challenge was a Vauxhall Motors Ltd Corsa Elite which has a 1.2 litre petrol engine and the set route encompassed urban, rural and high-speed roads.
Representing Esso, Guinness World Record holder Kevin Booker – one of the most successful hypermilers in the UK, alongside RED’s top trainer Iain West-Moore, shared tips that achieved an average of 19.3% higher yield than the MPG achieved by untrained drivers on the same route.
