In effort to be more environmentally friendly consider these four tips in caring for your car?
1. Follow the service schedule for your vehicle, including things like keeping tires inflated properly, replacing your air filters on a regular basis, changing your oil regularly, and checking your engine performance. Keeping up with routine maintenance will help reduce fuel consumption and emissions which will save you money at the pump too.
2. By keeping your vehicle for a longer time you help to limit the volume of new cars bought. It’s easy to extend vehicle life by just taking care of your car properly. By holding onto your car longer, you’ll have many more years of reliable service and no monthly car payments with high insurance rates.
3. Be responsible with your car batteries and fluids, including motor oil. These things need proper disposal to protect the environment.
4. If your car is having major engine trouble, consider having it rebuilt. It can give your car new life and even make it more fuel efficient for not much more than the cost of a down payment for a new car.
