Consumer Fuel Economy Workshop

  • The participants were volunteers from the general public, keen to improve their driving techniques and reap the benefits of this action. The audience was interactive, being a Spanish speaking country we had an interpreter, however this was not detrimental to the delivery of the messaging and we were still able to introduce humour into the mix. Each person’s previous driving was analysed, this gave a fuel economy figure (L/100 km,mpg) for each person to beat. In fact, they were to set their own individual records, playing against themselves. Following a six week duration each person’s fuel economy was checked, and the results saw that taking on board only a few of the better driving techniques they reduced their fuel consumption by 5% to 30%.

  • A number of radio and tv celebrities took part in a Fuel Economy challenge. Firstly, attending a workshop held by Helen and John Taylor. Then, fuelling their cars under the scrutiny of a well respected lawyer, at a Santiago petrol station. Now, it was time to drive the 80km designated route. Each contestant had a witness in the car next to them to ensure they abided by all the road traffic act laws, and the rules of the competition. On returning to the petrol station the fuel they used on this challenge was measured to determine the winner. The celebrities were able to nominate a charity to whom they would donate their prize, in this case it was a brand new car. The winning celebrities charity looked after children of parents in prison, and the car meant they would be able to take more of these children to visit their parents at the appropriate times. The story was covered by media outlets, spreading a good news story about Fuel Economy and Safe driving.

Fuel Economy Challenge

  • Staff at a local petrol station were invited to attend a Fuel Economy workshop held by Helen and John Taylor. We were able to share our experiences of past World record achievements, and enjoy a casual interactive question and answer session with the staff members. Staff members went into a draw, some of which were pulled out to participate in a Fuel Economy Challenge. This was a fun but serious event, all parties wanting to be the winner. All participants made a fantastic effort and were rewarded for their good spirit and end results (ranged from 10% to 40%) At the end of the day the challenge meant the staff felt important to their company, by sharing first hand in their fuel economy journey and being involved. The enthusiasm and knowledge in the workshop gave them a tool to take into the workplace to their customers, colleagues and home to their family and friends.
