Driving sustainably and maintaining your vehicle not only prolongs its lifespan but also significantly reduces environmental impact. Eco-friendly car maintenance ensures you’re doing your part for the planet while staying on the road. Here are some effective tips:

Keep Your Engine in Check

Regular tune-ups help your engine run efficiently, reducing emissions and improving fuel economy. Replace air filters and spark plugs on schedule.

Monitor Tire Pressure

Under-inflated tires increase fuel consumption and wear out quickly. Check your tire pressure regularly and keep it at the manufacturer’s recommended level.

Use Eco-Friendly Fluids

Switch to biodegradable, low-toxicity fluids for coolant, brake fluid, and transmission oil. Proper disposal is crucial to drive sustainably.

Lighten the Load

Excess weight makes your car consume more fuel. Remove unnecessary items from the trunk or back seat to lighten the load.

Smooth Driving

Accelerate smoothly and maintain a consistent speed. Avoid aggressive braking, which wastes fuel.

Avoid Idling

Turn off your engine if you’re waiting for more than a minute. Idling uses more fuel and increases emissions.

Consider Alternative Transportation

Whenever possible, walk, bike, carpool, or use public transit to reduce your driving time.

Routine Oil Changes

Avoid pouring used oil down drains or onto soil, as it can contaminate water supplies. Instead, use designated recycling centers or automotive shops like Boggs Automotive.
