Do you think you're a more efficient driver than your brother or sister,
mother or father or maybe even your best friend? Prove it! Come out and
celebrate Canada Environment Week with DriveWiser where we will be
hosting an Eco-Driving Rally. This is a chance for you put your fuel
efficiency skills to the test and win prizes! Not interested in driving?
No problem! Come out to see the latest fuel efficient vehicles up close,
participate in a driving simulator and get some great food!


When: June 5th, 2010 between 10-2 pm

Where: 1325 Lower Water Street parking lot, next to NS Power 

Why: To learn new efficiency skills and win some great prizes!



Who can participate? Anyone! As long as you have your own insured
vehicle** that is 1995 or newer and a valid driver's license. We will be
accepting 15 teams, first come first serve!


We will give you multiple checkpoints that you will need to visit during
the rally, so study up and find the most efficient way to each
checkpoint! Before you set off we will equip your vehicle with a
diagnostic tool which will monitor your fuel efficiency. The driver that
comes closest to their personal vehicle's Energuide rating wins the


Do you want to participate, but don't really know too many fuel
efficiency tips? No problem! We will be providing some great tips on how
you can drive the course efficiently before you set off. There will also
be a driving simulator on site that will help teach you how to drive


Don't forget to stick around where there will also be some of the latest
and greatest fuel sipping vehicles on display from Audi, Ford, Honda,
Smart, Subaru, Toyota and Volkswagen to check out up close! Everything
from hybrids to diesels and other types of fuel efficient technology
will be showcased. Experts will be on hand to answer any questions you
may have and will even bust a few myths in the process! If you like what
you see, or if you're just plain curious about how they drive, there
will be the opportunity or to book an appointment for a test drive.


There will also be an opportunity to get your oil and tire pressure
checked and there will be emissions testing on site so you can see just
how clean your vehicle is.

Saving gas and the environment can build up quite an appetite so there
will also be a BBQ put on by Auburn High school for a minimum donation
of $1. All proceeds will go to Auburn High's environment club.
