An App that Saves You Fuel

One classic driving tip to save fuel (and emissions) is to drive smoothly, without excessive acceleration and braking. One way to make sure we do this would be to have a full glass of water in the car.

But that could get quite messy, so Toyota developed an app that simulates the same effect on your phone. It will tell you how much water you would have spilled - and show on the map where you could have driven more smoothly.

They reckon you can save 10% by taking up the challenge and training yourself to keep the water in the glass.

PS. When you get your next car, you can save even more by selecting a more fuel efficient one from the Green Vehicle Guide.
