Green Your Car: Get Better Fuel Efficiency
Driving is one of the least green modes of transportation, but there are ways of being eco-friendly even while in a car. This week’s tips will help you have less of an impact the next time you have to drive.
Tip #1: Improve Fuel Efficiency
While zero-impact cars and fuels don’t (yet) exist, there are things every driver can do to improve fuel efficiency. One is simply by driving at a smoother pace — rapid acceleration wastes gas and increases emissions. Avoid drive-through windows, too: Unless you drive a hybrid, idling next to a pick-up window for more than 30 seconds actually wastes more gas than turning off, then restarting your car.
