Hmm not bad, like our Opposition Leader, you can talk the talk, but how much of it is just to impress? You definitely could do better - read tips from Juliette Jowit, our Transport Editor.

4/8 for me.
If I'm honest, I'm not much of an eco driver anyway.

Oh dear, oh dear it's not looking good for your green credentials and at this rate you'll embarrass yourself in the new driving test when it comes in. You definitely need to read up on eco-driving - try tips from Juliette Jowit, our Transport Editor.

got 3/8 in the first attempt. In second attempt it was better though :-)
This test proves nothing much but good enough to create some awareness on the subject!

Here's me - 1st attempt 7/8:
(probably because I know all the answers - they were pretty obvious...)

"You scored 7 out of a possible 8

Bicycle

Get you, eco-driver. In fact, we'd be surprised if you own a car at all, no doubt you've already traded it in for a bicycle and given the profits to a tree-planting outfit. Still, it wouldn't hurt to read tips from Juliette Jowit, our Transport Editor - there might be something even you don't know. "

Of course, if I actually drove like this in real life I wouldn't be on this forum!

Hey ELF ,

Having powerful and fun to drive cars doesn't mean you always have to drive hard and fast and like a maniac without looking where you are going or driving - you need to enjoy your driving too at times.
Besides normal driving is safe for everybody around and for the driver too !!
