How Does Eco:Speed Work?
Everyone knows that hard acceleration and driving faster result in higher fuel consumption, but most drivers don’t know where the balance between time and energy savings is - when to step on the gas to get to their destination sooner and when to ease up on the pedal to save fuel. Drivers either apply too much or too little, never getting it quite right.
Hurry Up and Wait
The problem itself is something we’ve all experienced while driving. For example, you pass another vehicle on the road only to have the same vehicle catch up a few blocks later in traffic or at stop light – both of you have travelled the same distance, but depending on your speed and driving habits, you’ve probably used more fuel - as much as 30% or more - just to get to the same point, often in the same amount of time. Add in constantly changing traffic conditions and it becomes virtually impossible for drivers to know exactly how to balance energy savings.
A New Way of Driving
What if instead, you had a mobile app that could constantly measure energy consumption and the trade-offs such as fuel cost, time to your destination and environmental impact, and you could adjust your driving behavior, even slightly, to save both time and money.
Our Eco:Speed mobile app does this automatically, constantly calculating your ideal Eco:Speed for any situation, factoring in your personal driving patterns, fuel consumption, the number of traffic stops, speed limit, local traffic conditions and more. Plus, it gives you real-time feedback on the efficiency of your driving. Whether it’s a slower start from a standstill or driving at a more efficient speed, you’ll know what driving techniques help you save time as well as money.
Based on over a decade of driving research, Eco:Speed is designed to help you save money and adopt better driving habits for greater fuel-efficiency. It’s easy to use and a great way to manage your fuel consumption.
What Is My Eco:Speed?
Your Eco:Speed is a computer-generated driving speed tailored to your personal needs and desired fuel consumption – you can save a lot, or you can a save a little. By following the driving speed generated by our Eco:Speed mobile app you’ll still get to your destination in the time you want, but with even greater fuel savings. You can always travel above the driving speed generated by Eco:Speed, but chances are you won’t get there any faster and your fuel bill will be higher - as much as 30% higher.
