Many vehicle owners are looking for ways to become more environmentally friendly with their vehicle. A schedule of basic automotive service or keeping up with seemingly insignificant issues of automotive repair may not have entered their mind.
But, just by following the four simple steps below, drivers can save money, and help protect the environment at the same time.
1. Regular automotive service. This includes checking engine performance, keeping tires properly inflated, replacing air filters, regular oil changes, and checking the gas cap. Routine automotive service helps reduce emissions and fuel consumption, keeping the air we breathe cleaner, and saving you money at the pump.
2. Keep your current vehicle. Limit the number of new cars you buy over the course of a lifetime. Extending vehicle life is as simple as quality automotive service on a regular basis, and not neglecting any necessary automotive repair issues. You’ll gain years of reliable service without monthly car payments and higher insurance rates.
3. Recycle. By recycling and properly disposing of motor oil, tires, batteries, and other used parts and fluids, you are helping protect our earth as you practice good automotive service and repair.
4. Repower your engine. If you are facing serious engine trouble, consider a remanufactured or rebuilt engine. It can give your vehicle new life and make it more fuel efficient for about the cost of an average down payment on a new car.
Remember:Taking care of the appropriate automotive service and having the right automotive repair performed on a regular basis will go a long way toward protecting the environment and saving you money.
