If you’re looking to minimize your carbon footprint, consider investing in a cleaner vehicle. We specialize in hybrids, so we are happy to answer any questions you have.

  • Maintain your car. Proper car maintenance goes hand in hand with environmental responsibility. Keep your tires inflated; this will improve your gas milage by up to 3%. Keep your engine tuned; replacing a faulty oxygen sensor can improve mileage by up to 40%. Take a few minutes to plan ahead for the shortest most gas-saving commute. Combine errands, carpool, and offer rides when you can.
  • When you’re behind the wheel: DON’T SPEED. This is important, not only for your safety, but because gas mileage declines quickly when you’re accelerating above 60 mph. Take advantage of cruise control (it will save you gas money; it is also good for the environment). Use your overdrive gears to lower engine speed and reduce engine wear.
