Australian government's advice to drive greener: drive less

There's something I love about the smack-your-face obviousness of the first tip in the Australian Government's Green Vehicle Guide: "Minimise [sic] your vehicle use". This tip can be used by anyone anywhere, and there is no other advice that will result in a more dramatic reduction in fuel usage. Good on 'em for realizing and promoting this.
For those times when you do drive, the AGGVG gives similarly sensible advice. Minimize drag, don't accelerate like a maniac, turn off the car instead of idling and look after your car's tyres [sic, again]. Nothing in this list is earth-shatteringly new, but let's give 'em credit for trying to be earth-saving.
