Today, at our Ottershaw filling station, we are installing low energy LED canopy lighting. As part of our energy monitoring programme at Ottershaw, we are working to reduce our environmental impact, and hopefully reduce our costs at the same time!

The installation, carried out by Blueserve Facilities will be carried out in lanes, so that we will not be closing our forecourt at any time.

Earlier this year Honda (UK) invited a few of its Twitter followers, to make a video-based test drive review of the new Civic 1.6 i-DTEC. But no ordinary review - a challenge to find how far the new Civic Diesel might go on a single tank of diesel.

If you don't want to change your current car, there are still ways you can drive greener:

Lose Some Weight

Remove roof boxes and roof racks when you're not using them - they cause extra aerodynamic drag, which will raise your fuel consumption. Open windows and sunroofs do the same; and for the same reason, get any loose items of external trim fixed.

Britain's 'greenest' car is the Honda Insight with the 'least green' car being the 8.0 litre Dodge SRT-10, according to the Environmental Transport Association (ETA). It calculates that a year's driving in the Dodge emits the same amount of carbon dioxide emissions as is absorbed by 322 mature trees - the equivalent of an acre of oak forest. The ETA examined over 1,300 models of car currently on sale in Britain and compared their power, emissions, fuel efficiency and the amount of noise they produce to create a definitive guide to buying the 'greenest' vehicle.
