How to Make Your Car More Environmentally Friendly
If you have a new or even used vehicle that still runs great, there are a few things you can do to make your car more environmentally friendly. Doing so is not only good for the environment, it can also help improve fuel efficiency and require less frequent refueling at the gas station.
Tip No. 1: Remove the excess weight from the vehicle.
In spring, remove the winter emergency kit from the trunk and anything you don’t need. Just remember to leave the spare wheel, jack and iron in case of a puncture. By removing excess weight, your vehicle weighs less, uses less fuel and doesn’t have to work as hard, reducing wear on the engine and transmission.
Tip No. 2: Ask your mechanic or body shop to tint the windows.
Window tinting helps reflect heat-generating sunlight and blocks harmful UV rays. In the warmer summer months, when you use your vehicle’s air conditioning, you can keep the interior cooler and not worry about using extra gas like you do.
Tip No. 3: Check the tire pressure to keep the filled tires at the right levels.
If your tires are inflated too much or too little, they are not touching the road properly. This not only causes the tires to wear out faster, but also causes the engine to work harder to keep the vehicle on the pavement. Also, stopping can put a strain on the brakes.
Correctly filled tires provide optimum fuel efficiency as well as adequate tread wear so that the tires last longer.
Tip No. 4: Sell your old cars to an auto recycler in Toronto and the GTA.
When it’s time to get rid of your old car, the greenest method is to sell it to an auto recycler in Toronto, North York, Brampton, and Mississauga. Car recyclers scrap the vehicle and reuse as many parts and components as possible, such as the steel used in the chassis or electrical wiring.
By using a car recycler, you also do your part to prevent hazardous materials, such as radiator coolant and engine oil, from getting into the ground in landfills or landfills. Not to mention the car recyclers who pay the most for your old vehicles, regardless of whether they’re in operation or completely dead.
If you’d like to replace your old vehicle with something newer, you can get help finding an affordable replacement through the car recycler’s dealer network.
