Consumers, companies and sponsors got rolling during the Eco-Wheels Show in Toronto in June. The annual weekend event featured the latest models in eco-friendly transportation and taught visitors how to drive — and live — a little greener.

Canadian Geographic and Shell Canada staff handed out lists of energy-saving tips to attendees. Along for the ride were Australian couple and fuel-efficiency experts John and Helen Taylor (right). The Taylors shared some driving tips that could equal big savings. For instance, slowing down from 110 to 100 kilometres per hour can save up to 23 percent of the fuel in your tank.

The Eco-Wheels Show was one of several stops in Shell Canada’s Smarter Driver Challenge, a cross-country road trip designed to educate Canadians on how to save gas — which it did by completing the 6,350-kilometre journey on under five tanks of fuel.
