The OBD (On Board Diagnostic) port that Lightfoot connects to is designed to offer free choice of aftermarket service providers and ensure drivers are not locked down to any particular provider/manufacturer or unfair/mandatory charges or costs. This means the driver/vehicle owner gets to decide what they want to connect to it, not the vehicle manufacturer or anyone else.

Lightfoot will audibly alert drivers when they are outside of the engine's sweet spot – and this means it’s doing its job. The unit will only prompt you when you are putting excess strain on the engine and consequently putting yourself at risk. The Lightfoot lights also automatically dim at night or in low light conditions to avoid unnecessarily distracting the driver. We like to think of it as your driving conscience helping you to drive safely, responsibly, and economically!

Achieving Elite Driver status means the following applies to you:

  • Top 3% of drivers in terms of efficient and smooth driving

  • Eligible to win the Drivers' Lottery

  • Eligible to win the weekly prize competitions

  • Saving fuel, vehicle wear and tear, and the environment

Unfortunately, PayPal is the only way we are able to send out these prizes at this time.

If you enter an email address via the prize claim form in the app, you will be sent an email from PayPal allowing you to set up an account with that email address, and your winnings will be waiting in there for you.

If you do not want to set up a PayPal account then you can always use a friend's or family member's account details and sort this out with them separately.

Lightfoot is an extremely low power draw for any vehicle, using under 200 milliamps when everything is up and running, and dropping to under 15 milliamps when the vehicle has the ignition off.

This means that it will not drain your vehicle's battery. However, it is important to note that many modern vehicles do have a host of power hungry systems (sat nav, infotainment system, and hybrid/EV battery management system) so it is recommended by many manufacturers that a vehicle is not left for more than a week or two without being driven.
