Making your car green will help Mother Nature out and could save you money in the long run.
- Change your air filter — cleaning your air filter regularly can improve your gas mileage significantly.
- Don’t speed — being a good driver can save you some dollars at the pump since speeding uses extra gas. Rapid acceleration and hard braking are also inefficient and lower your gas mileage.
- Cruise control is a great option too. Using your cruise control will keep you driving at a more consistent speed and generally improve fuel efficiency.
