Ford and the AA combine to help drivers save fuel

Ford and AA DriveTech are aiming to help Ford drivers save fuel by offering specialised driver training.

The Econo Driver Training course is dedicated to fuel economy driving tuition and is now available for Ford owners who have participated in the Ford Econo Check programme.

An Econo Check consists of a 35-point vehicle inspection at a Ford dealer and the installation of a small data logger which monitors driving style and fuel economy for seven days.

The driver training is provided throughout the UK by AA DriveTech instructors.

After a Ford Econo Check data logger is removed, a personalised report highlights four areas for possible driving-style improvements: speed, anticipation, braking and gear change. The Econo Driver Training targets the specific issues highlighted on a customer's report.
