Green Car Care Tips

For the service provider, utilizing green car care tips and practices to help your women customers burn less fuel, produce less emissions, and drive greener will position you as not only an expert technician, but someone who truly cares about the causes she supports.  Here are a few green car tips you can utilize in your checkups and consultations:

  • Getting a tune-up can improve gas mileage by an average of 4 percent.
  • Avoid sudden starts and stops and go the speed limit. Jerky and aggressive driving decreases your miles per gallon (MPG) and increases wear and tear on your vehicle.
  • Get the junk out of the trunk!  Extra items weigh the vehicle down and cause an increase in gas usage.
  • A cooling system thermostat that causes the engine to run too cold will lower the fuel efficiency of a car by as much as one or two mpg.
  • Check your vehicle’s gas cap. A loose, damaged or missing gas caps means gas is evaporating, harming the environment and wasting money.
  • When filling up your car, remember to stop when the nozzle shuts off! Topping off the gas tank can release harmful vapors into the environment and waste money.
  • Replace your car’s fuel filter every two years or 24,000 miles and have your fuel injectors flushed our every 30,000 miles.
