Carbon Footprint

Reducing the Carbon Footprint


Fitted to the Transit the device can make sound business sense with fuel consumption savings, as well as reducing CO2 emissions, says Britain’s number one light van seller.

On the Transit 260 or 280s 2.2 litre 85 PS low-roof van, for example, driving 10 mph below the motorway limit could save more than 19% on fuel consumption at cruising speeds – alongside a similar percentage cut in CO2 emissions. By limiting speeds to 65 mph, a saving of more than 10% at cruising speeds is possible on the same model, again with a corresponding 10% plus reduction in CO2 emissions. On a Transit Jumbo, a cruising speed saving of almost 13% is achievable by governing top speed at 60 mph compared with 70 mph.
