Slow Down, 242°

Reduce your driving speed when conditions allow. Air resistance is proportional to the square of your speed, so slowing from 100Km/h to 90Km/h reduces your car's air resistance by nearly 20%.

For our US colleagues, slowing from 65mph to 55mph reduces your air resistance by 28%.

Combine this with slower acceleration, less braking and better anticipation will reduce your fuel consumption by 10 - 15%.

I like the idea of going slower, generally. If we are hurtling toward an imaginary finish line, it certainly doesn't look like there's much of a winner's trophy!

do every thing slower!
slow food, walk, take your time, do less, relax

Now we know what progress can do, it's time we picked up the right lessons, and continue to 'hasten' slowly, somewhat like the proverbial tortoise. Perhaps that is its secret of contented longevity.
