Now that I have Lady Rouge at my disposal, I am not anymore at the mercy of my husband to drive me places. It really helps a lot that I need not depend on his every busy schedule. But the hubby, up to now is teaching me how to drive in a more fuel efficient manner. He cannot help being my backseat driver whenever I’m the one behind the wheel. His landing as a topnotch last year for a fuel efficient run is probably driving him to want to teach me how. 🙂 But I did get a few fuel saving pointers he had taught me. Like not lugging around with extra and unnecessary weight in the car. Because the more weight we lug around in the car, the more fuel it burns.
Incidentally if you know how to drive and you think you have what it takes to be the country’s Smartest Drivers, you might want join Shell Eco-Marathon happening this coming July 2010. The contest is open to legal-aged Filipino drivers with valid driver’s license. To join the Shell Smartest Driver promo, participants will create a video demonstrating or discussing fuel saving tips that will allow motorists to increase their fuel efficiency. Close the entry by completing the catch phrase “Ang Pinoy na matipid sa gasolina, ____________.” Then simply log onto www.topgear.com.ph/shellsmartestdrivers and upload your fuel saving video clip. Entries can be submitted from May 20 to June 20, 2010.
Participants will get shell premium items, fuel and product vouchers when you are tagged as one of the finalists. The grand prize winner will take home no less than a brand new, fuel efficient car! Now this is the contest of all contests, I should say. Perhaps the hubby could join. He might as well pour out his zest on teaching me to drive the way he does to doing videos of fuel saving tips to join the Eco-Marathon. 😉
