The Impact On Your Business Of Driving Faster


It’s no secret that by driving faster over a prolonged period of time will see your vehicles consume significantly more fuel and if you have multiple vehicles on the road at one time, this can soon spiral your fuel costs out of control.

Research recently released has attempted to shed light on how much you could be missing out on by driving faster and the findings will blow your mind.

According to, the average UK driver who drives at 80mph on a motorway will spend an extra £3064 on fuel costs in their lifetime. This is in comparison to those who drive at 60mph.

The impact extends much further than just the costs of your fuel, as first of all, it is illegal to be driving at 80mph on the motorway and secondly, consuming more fuel has a negative impact on the environment as more CO2 is released.



As if the prospect of having to spend an extra £3000 wasn’t bad enough, think about how this next stat could be impacting your business – increasing your cruising speed from 55mph to 75mph can raise your fuel consumption as much as 20%. From raising your cruising speed from 55mph to 75mph can increase your fuel costs by an extra 20%, money that could be spent on other areas of your business.
