Here are some tips to make your car as “green” as possible…
Next time you are in the market for a new car, look for a more fuel efficient model. Hybrids can be good option-but do your research on the vehicles you are looking at. Often times, the fuel efficiency of non-hybrid cars is pretty darn close to a hybrid car and you aren’t paying more for a hybrid up front.
Check the air pressure in your tires; under-inflated tires reduce fuel efficiency.
Support local economy and decrease fossil-fuel consumption by shopping close to home and cluster errands.
Unload your trunk, the lighter the load, the less gas your car consumes.
Reduce idling in your car.
Depending on where you live, walk, ride your bike or use public transportation when possible.
