Drive Responsibly:

Drive Responsibly:

Smooth and steady driving habits contribute to better fuel efficiency. Avoid aggressive acceleration, excessive speeding, and abrupt braking, as these behaviors can lead to increased fuel consumption. By driving responsibly, you'll not only save fuel but also extend the lifespan of your vehicle's components

Minimise Excess Weight:

Minimise Excess Weight:

Reducing unnecessary weight in your vehicle can enhance fuel efficiency. Take the time to declutter your trunk and interior, removing items that aren't essential for your journey. Every extra pound adds strain to your engine and decreases fuel economy, so lightening your load can make a noticeable difference.

Plan Your Routes Wisely:

Plan Your Routes Wisely:

Optimise your driving routes to minimize distance and avoid traffic congestion whenever possible. Utilize GPS or AppleCar Play to find the most efficient paths to your destinations. Planning ahead can help you save petrol and reduce overall travel time, making your journeys more efficient and enjoyable.

Enhance Aerodynamics:

Enhance Aerodynamics:

Streamline your vehicle's profile to reduce drag and improve aerodynamic efficiency. Keep windows closed at higher speeds and remove rooftop accessories when not in use. These simple adjustments can significantly reduce fuel consumption, particularly during highway driving.

Utilize Cruise Control:

Utilize Cruise Control:

Engage cruise control during long highway drives to maintain a consistent speed and optimise fuel efficiency. By minimizing speed fluctuations, cruise control helps reduce fuel consumption and enhances driver comfort on extended journeys

Consider a Hybrid or EV:

Consider a Hybrid or EV:

If you're in the market for a new vehicle, consider purchasing a hybrid or battery electric vehicle.

Hybrid cars combine an internal combustion engine with an electric motor, resulting in significantly improved fuel efficiency and reduced emissions. Investing in a hybrid vehicle is not only environmentally friendly but also helps you save on fuel costs in the long run.

Toyota pioneered hybrid technology with the introduction of the Prius, leading the way in sustainable driving innovation

To this day, our hybrid models continue to be among the most popular cars in Australia, embodying Toyota's commitment to efficient and eco-friendly driving solutions
