Driving Facts

Road traffic is responsible for about 13% of Australia’s carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gas emissions. Why go green?


Leaving your car at home just two days a week will reduce greenhouse gas emissions by an average of 725kg per year.


A litre of LPG contains less energy than a litre of petrol, so LPG consumption per 100 km is higher than petrol consumption for models that have LPG and petrol versions. However, it burns a lot cleaner than petrol, so emissions are lower. Why go green?


Hard acceleration and braking can waste fuel and lower your kilometres travelled by 33% on the highway and 5% around town. 

 


Diesel versions are usually more fuel-efficient than petrol versions of the same car model. However, they emit greater air pollution rating — the one-star list is entirely made up of diesel vehicles, mainly large 4WDs. Why go green?
