"We are here today to side with the people and to help them save at the pump immediately," Governor Schwarzenegger said. "This program is no substitute for a consistent, long-term national energy policy, but it provides immediate and tangible relief from high gas prices. Just by following some simple recommendations, drivers can get 15 percent better gas mileage, save money at the pump and reduce demand for foreign oil. During the transition to more renewable and secure energy sources, we'll all benefit and save money from the most efficient use of gasoline."
The Alliance's EcoDriving consumer awareness campaign centers on an interactive website, www.EcoDrivingUSA.com, to help drivers learn practical tips to improving their mileage and reducing their carbon footprint. The site includes a video guide to EcoDriving, an "EcoCalculator" to determine benefits for individuals or states, a virtual road test and a variety of educational tools.
By following a set of easy-to-use best practices for driving and vehicle maintenance, a typical EcoDriver can improve mileage by about 15 percent. In addition, EcoDriving produces the highest mileage from every single vehicle, regardless of vehicle size and age, so it offers an unmatched reach in addressing energy and climate issues by potentially affecting the nation's entire fleet of 240 million automobiles.
