Following a regular schedule of basic car service not only helps save the environment and natural resources, but will increase the operating efficiency of your vehicle, increase the driving safety, increase its longevity, and save time and money spent on a necessary and costly car repair.

Below are a few car service tips for the environmentally-conscious driver to consider:

  • Check tires. Under-inflated tires, wheels out of alignment, or tires that have lost their balance makes the engine work harder to push the vehicle down the road thereby decreasing fuel efficiency. Properly maintained tires will last longer, meaning fewer tires headed for the scrap pile.
  • Observe the speed limit. Fuel efficiency decreases significantly when driving over 55 mph. Use cruise control as much as possible to keep a steady speed, and avoid fast accelerations and jerky stops.
  • Turn the motor off. Avoid excessive idling. With today's advanced automotive technology, those 10-minute warm-ups on cold mornings are no longer necessary.
  • Remove excess weight. Less weight means better mileage. Reduce drag by storing luggage in the trunk rather than on the roof.
  • Consolidate trips. Consolidate your daily errands, join a car pool, and try to travel when traffic is light to avoid stop-and-go conditions.
  • Engine service. A misfiring spark plug can reduce fuel efficiency as much as 30%. Follow the maintenance service schedules, replacing belts, filters, and fluids as recommended in your owner's manual.
  • Properly working A/C. Your air conditioner should be serviced only by a technician that is certified to handle refrigerants. The Environmental Protection Agency states that almost one-third of the gases released into the atmosphere come from vehicle air conditioners.
  • Proper disposal of used automotive parts. Many car repair shops are happy to dispose of used motor oil, anti-freeze, worn-out tires, and old batteries for you. Or call your city or county government for recycling sites.

Remember: Make sure our environment and natural resources are safe for generations to come by maintaining an efficient operating vehicle, regular car service, and proper disposal of used automotive parts and fluids.
