As motorists across the country struggle with $4 gallon gasoline costs and search for ways to reduce their impact on the environment, Enterprise Rent-A-Car is offering 10 Keys to Green Driving— useful tips that drivers can use to cut down on fuel use and save money.
“When it comes to improving fuel economy and reducing our impact on the environment, every little bit helps,” said Steve Short, vice president, leisure business development. “As we look for ways that we as individuals can make a difference, smarter driving is one step we can all take.”
Enterprise— along with sister companies National Car Rental and Alamo Rent A Car— owns the world’s largest fleet of fuel-efficient vehicles. More than 440,000 cars in the combined fleet of approximately 1.1 million vehicles average a highway fuel efficiency rating of at least 28 mpg or better, and more than 237,000 average 32 mpg or better.
Enterprise, National and Alamo also operate the world’s largest fleet of FlexFuel vehicles— more than 73,000 cars and trucks that have the ability to use E85, a blend of 85 percent ethanol and 15 percent gasoline— and approximately 4,000 gas/electric hybrid vehicles. The companies also offer the industry’s largest consumer carbon offset program, which enables customers to offset the CO2 emissions associated with renting a car.
