This book describes in a clear, friendly manner everything today’s driver needs to know about choosing and using a car in an economical and eco-efficient way. It explains what matters most to the car buyer when optimum fuel economy and lowest emissions are priorities, and why four wheel drive and automatic transmission present challenges to eco-friendly driving. 

The author

A motoring journalist for over 30 years, Dave Moss has spent much time developing economy driving techniques, researching alternative fuels, and charting the development of tomorrow's cars. When Dave was 17, shoestring motoring made maximum mpg vital for him - a concern that eventually led to him winning a special award for exceeding 90mpg in an ordinary Ford Fiesta diesel. Successful entries in many national economy runs followed, and continue to this day. With fuel economy, exhaust emissions, alternative fuels and engines dominating the headlines, now is the time to benefit from Dave's knowledge and experience, save cash, and become a more eco-friendly driver.
