Fuel Price & Efficiency News
Electric cars are becoming more and more popular in the UK, and for good reason! By buying an electric car, you’re showing you’re environmentally conscious, as they do not emit toxic gases and run on a clean energy source.
Speed bumps are a familiar part of everyday life when driving along British roads. They aim to reduce driver’s speed by forcing them to take their time over each and every bump. But what if their negative attributes outweigh their positives?
Steph Cockroft, The MailOnline, reports:
Air pollution is a hot topic. It’s driving the production of electric cars and has prompted countries such as Norway to consider banning petrol cars altogether. But what steps is the UK taking? The mayor of London has an unusual suggestion.
Fionn Hargreaves, The MailOnline, reports:
Many of us use supermarket petrol stations because we believe their petrol prices are much lower than dedicated fuel retailers, and often choose to fill up whilst doing the weekly shop. Whilst this may be convenient, you might not actually be saving as much money as you initially thought.
Norway continues to lead the way in reducing harmful vehicle emissions. The Norwegian government have reportedly proposed to completely ban the sale of petrol powered cars within the next decade. This is an enormous task that arguably every other country should also be embarking on.
Do you drive a diesel and have you been stung with the rising cost of fuel? With news that the fuel is more dangerous to humans than petrol (even if we were told it was better for the environment), it’s a bad time for diesel owners all round!
Claire Heffron, The Mail Online, reports:
It goes without saying the speeding is breaking the law and should be treated accordingly. Despite this there seems to be a lot of uncertainty surrounding speeding fines and points on a licence.
Alex Robbins, The Telegraph, reports:
The cars that James Bond drives in each of his iconic films will always get attention. He’s driven Alfa Romeos, Jaguars and Bentleys, amongst others, with perhaps the most famous being the Aston Martin DB5.
It may be tempting to get carried away in the moment and take immediate advantage of diesel prices being lower than petrol. However, as with any new car purchase you should take more than the cost of fuel into account.
The Telegraph reports:
Motorists have been informed that a £20 fine will be presented to them if they are sat in a stationary car with the engine running. From 1st of May the new penalty will come into force in two trial boroughs of London, and as you can imagine the majority are against the new fines.
