Now that 2020 is here, you have a chance to get the New Year and decade started on the right foot. If you’re looking for ways to make some improvements to your life and lessen your impact on the environment, here are a few green New Year’s resolutions for your car.
Clean Out Your Car
The heavier your car is, the more fuel it will use. If your trunk or car is filled with a lot of unnecessary items, you could be wasting a lot of gas. Clean out your car and only keep the necessities. Make it a habit to clean out your car at least once a month.
Drive the Speed Limit
Most vehicles are designed to deliver optimal fuel efficiency around 55 mph. The faster you drive, the more inefficient your car is. For example, by driving 75 mph instead of 55 mph, you may be decreasing your efficiency by as much as 20%.
Keep Up with Maintenance
A well-maintained car will run more efficiently than one that needs an oil change. Keep up with the routine maintenance schedule listed in your owner’s manual. Pay particular attention to oil changes, air filter changes, engine tune-ups, and tire rotations.
