Martin Lewis said drivers were “burning fuel” every time they pressed on the accelerator and used their brake pedals. He warned changing their driving style can have a “massive impact” on drivers petrol and diesel costs especially as prices continue to rise.

He has urged drivers to update their “road position” to ensure they speed up and slow down more gradually.

He made the stunning revelation on his hour-long Martin Lewis Money Show special this evening.

The warning came after social media producer Emma said lots of people had got in touch “worried about the cost of petrol”.

Martin Lewis replied: “Petrolprices.com is a website that shows you the cheapest petrol station in an area near to you.

“So it’s worth having a look at that.

“Also think about how you drive.

“Remember, every time you put your foot down on the accelerator you’re effectively burning fuel.

“Every time you brake you are getting rid of money you have paid to put in the car to keep it going.

“Road positioning, so that you speed up more slowly, not your maximum speed, and you can slow down more gradually, of course, you brake when you need to brake for safety.

“All of that can make a massive impact on the amount of petrol you can use when driving along.

“But there is no magic wand on that I’m afraid.”

His warning comes just weeks after petrol and diesel prices hit a new all-time high in the UK.
