Remove pounds to save ££££

The Energy Saving Trust has released the findings of its research into not only how much you can save financially but also save the planet by lightening the load in your van.

It has been estimated that if half of the LGV drivers in the UK removed 75KG from their vans (3 or 4 bags of san/cement) it would save around £50 million a year and 100,000 less tonnes of carbon dioxide.

A difference in fuel consumption of up to 30% has been found between an empty and fully loaded van in some cases, so it pays to think about what’s loaded on your van.
