My fuel efficiency coaching works.
These testimonials from business clients say far more about my eco-driver fuel efficiency training than I could ever hope to:
"Not only did we achieve immediate improvements, mine being in the order of 33% and my colleagues' a massive 58%! Over the course of a year this would save the company in excess of £2300. As a consequence all our sales team will be booked in with Keith. The fuel savings far outweigh the cost of the 90 minute session.
I have to add that the experience was fun, very informative and I would have no hesitation in recommending any company or individual wanting to improve their fuel efficiency to sign up with Keith Mansfield, 1st young Driver Training". Alec at Redcrier publications
*It is worth noting that Alec was an advanced driver at a high level (blue light trained), for many years prior to this training, but still saw significant gains of 33% in his diesel Audi A5.
** Update March 2012: Within 6 months Alec made a point of meeting and thanking me, as he had just started to improve his original consumption by over 50%.
This just goes to show that 'settling in to the new routine' sees further improvements.

"When meeting Keith at a local seminar I was intrigued by his Eco Driving course and found out as much as I could. I felt that the mpg I was achieving was okay and felt that I was driving as economically as I could. However, almost anything can be improved on, and with rising fuel costs as well I felt I had to take part.
Keith is an excellent tutor. He's both patient and calm and explained everything really well. I learnt far more than I expected to, but on reflection, it was well over 20 years since I passed my test and the approach at that time wasn't so much on economical driving, as just getting past the examiner!
I now have a new set of skills, and I'm finding that my driving is more relaxed than before. During my course we calculated that my mpg efficiency had improved by 25%! So, more relaxed driving AND more money in my pocket, what more could I want?!
I'd definitely recommend taking the eco driving course with Keith to anyone". Carole Collins at DENMAN COLLINS
"Having driven for 34 years and approx 1.35 Million miles, or roughly 54 times round the world, there was quite a level of reluctance to having my driving assessed.
I was very surprised to find out how early I could come off the power approaching an obstacle or junction, yet still maintain a good average speed and not take any longer to reach a destination. Now I spend less time sitting at lights or junctions and more time moving which has improved my fuel consumption, especially around town and also helped my stress levels.
I would most certainly recommend Keith to anyone who wants to save fuel, reduce maintenance costs on their vehicle by being kinder to it and anyone who wants help to reduce the stress and impact of driving. His easy approach and manner created an environment for friendly advice that has resulted in a genuine benefit". Ray at Precept Optimum Performance
Remember, this 16.5% saving was in a DIESEL car over only 95 miles and was achieved on mainly motorways. Mpg improvements will always be smaller here than town, where we stop and start regularly (the biggest killer of mpg). My clients' savings will be even more significant than 16.5% in a town setting.
As featured in the Somerset County Gazette's first 'GREEN FOR LIFE'.
If you've ever begrudged watching the £££'s clicking over rapidly as you fill with fuel or looking at your company's accounts in frustration I CAN help you.
Eco-driver training (fuel efficiency coaching) is part science, part common sense (isn't everything ONCE you know the answer?!) and ALL about advanced driving.
I refer to what I do during the fuel efficiency coaching as 're-mapping the driver's brain', as it's all in how you perceive driving situations. Once I've changed how you perceive them you will see fantastic savings. Don't panic... It won't hurt and there's no hypnosis involved!
For, on average 90 minutes of your time, I can give you or your staff the tools to make dramatic improvements in fuel efficiency. After the training all drivers will get my document 'Eco-driver training', packed with hints, tips and importantly.... Humour. By referring to this after training there will continue to be more and more improvements as your new mindset is automatically used.
Eco-driver training IS about reading the road ahead and adapting to the road conditions. It is NOT about crawling along slowly... That's a myth!
In October 2011 I have had these successes:
A sales director in a luxury Audi A8 whose average mpg over a variety of roads was 21.3mpg before coaching started. 90 minutes later, on roads covering motorway, rural and stop start town driving, his average mpg had improved by a staggering 58% to 34mpg.
A company owner, qualified as an advanced driver, in a range topping Audi A5 soft-top diesel sport whose average consumption was 27mpg before fuel efficiency coaching began. Again on a variety of roads and conditions his average mpg had risen 33% to 36mpg. Remember, that's a 33% increase for an advanced driver driving a diesel car!
The testimonials for these and others are above. hard copies of these testimonials, on their headed paper are always available for prospective clients to view. Just ask.
My first eco-driver client of 2011 was Taunton Deane Borough Council.
Feedback for this event was:
''Keith's professional, calm and dedicated manner has helped staff at TDBC to adopt new, more fuel efficient driving techniques''. Torsten, Climate Change Officer, Taunton Deane Borough Council
A TDBC staff attendee, Margaret, commented that she'd recently purchased the same Yaris model loaned by TDBC. When asked what she thought of it she replied that she was extremely disappointed, expecting the fuel consumption to be way above the figures she was achieving.
Her driving was mostly from home, via main roads to work at TDBC. However, within 20 minutes of 'stop start' conditions in Taunton town centre in the build up to rush hour, Margaret had bettered the Urban figures of her own car by 51%, despite not leaving the far less fuel-efficient Taunton town centre. She could barely believe her eyes.
**My advice to Margaret was that if she couldn't now get similar figures in her own car after zeroing the fuel computer and heeding my advice, she should take it to the garage she purchased it from, as it may need some urgent maintenance or repair.
One of her colleagues at Taunton Deane Borough Council emailed, saying:
''Torsten, I found it very worthwhile as it made me think about elements of driving that I wouldn't previously have thought of as being that important. As it only takes just over an hour I would certainly recommend it even if you are a driver with lots of experience''. Andrew, TDBC
