EcoSafe Driving Training

It’s Time To Be EcoSafe Certified.

HINO vehicles are known for their environmental friendliness and exceptional fuel efficiency.
By applying a few driving techniques, we can increase the fuel efficiency of your Hino vehicle.

Just imagine if all commercial vehicles in a company’s fleet were able to reduce their fuel consumption.
That would mean a great deal of fuel saved, which in turn would mean less pollution and less cost to you.
And the reduction of fuel usage and emission gases reduces the ecological impact on the world and protects our environment.

We encourage you to take the EcoSafe Driving Training for safety and the environment.
Follow the HINO EcoSafe Certified driving course and become a Role Model and Driver Trainer in your company by taking the lead and driving economically and safely on our roads.

EcoSafe Drive program

Learn not only driving skills but also their need

・Why Eco-safe driving leads to respect for society as a whole 
・Why Eco-Safe driving is good for the environment 
・Danger prediction and response unique to trucks and buses 
・Fuel efficient driving methods 
・Checkpoints before driving

Gear according to the situation

・Shift gear between 1500 and 1800 RPM
・Step on the accelerator at about 80%
・Maximum acceleration is 1500-1800RPM
・Fuel efficiency is the best in the middle of a green zone of the engine tachometer
・It is good to start the shift before the needle enters the green zone

Let’s be aware of the engine speed

・When driving at a constant speed, the engine speed is 1000 to 2000 RPM This speed is ideal! 

・This is the most economical driving method
・Use the accelerator to the minimum necessary

  • Accelerate / decelerate within 10 km as much as possible
  • Although it is important to be aware of the number of revolutions, let’s drive with safety first and foremost

The accelerator is gentle

・Step on gently
・The upper limit of speed is 80 to 90 km
・High speed requires power
・If you do so, fuel efficiency will worsen
・Air resistance also increases
・Therefore, fuel efficiency will improve if you drive 80 to 90 kilometers
・Reducing the speed by 10 km will improve fuel efficiency by 10%

Let’s use the brake properly

・Step on gently
・Use the engine brake when decelerating
・Let’s step on the brake at an
・appropriate timing with a margin
・Use the brake pedal the minimum according to the traffic conditions
・This leads to improved fuel efficiency 

Let’s stop idling

・If you idle for 3 hours a day, if you use it every 25 days, it will be 720L of fuel consumption per year
・In case of a large truck, it will be approximately 1,170L per year
・Stop idling during breaks and filling in in the truck

There are still more

・Check tires pressure and fuel efficiency on a regular basis 
・The cargo is well balanced and does not carry extra items
・Let’s keep an appropriate distance 
・Air conditioning only when necessary 
・Check the route in advance
・Avoid peak traffic as much as possible
