IAM Drive & Survive teach comedians eco-driving techniques

IAM Drive & Survive gave Comedians Dan Adams and Christian Ancliff eco-driving technique tips as they drove from London to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival on one tank of fuel.

Designed to lower fuel consumption and CO2 emissions, the IAM ecolution eco-driving course offers hints and tips on smoother and safer driving methods. The pair learned simple techniques such as advanced anticipation, intelligent route planning and speed control which helped them increase their fuel economy by 50 per cent, as well as getting them from A to B a lot quicker. Adams and Ancliff arrived in Edinburgh with a third of a tank still remaining.

The comedians’ IAM Drive & Survive tutor Simon Elstow said: “Dan and Christian did a brilliant job and have shown just what’s possible if you think intelligently about the way you drive. They have taken away fuel-efficient techniques which will work on any road in any car they drive in future.”

Dan Adams commented: “The ecolution driving course proved that driving efficiently is as much to do with the driver as the car - it’s a reciprocal thing".
