Playing our part for the environment doesn’t stop the minute a customer drives away from our repair shop. At MazTech All Tech Automotive, we pride ourselves on educating our clients about how to reduce their impact on the environment while improving your car’s performance.
Keep Your Car/Truck Up-To-Date
Keep your car or truck up-to-date with regular maintenance. Making sure your car is running efficiently will improve gas mileage and reduce emissions. Be sure to have spark plugs, air filters, tires, and the cooling system checked regularly.
Chill out behind the wheel
Abrupt starts and stops and aggressive driving can hamper your gas mileage. Also, try to limit trips in your vehicle by planning to buy groceries while you are already out running other errands.
Use Cruise Control
Use cruise control to maintain a consistent speed, when possible.
Limit idling simply by turning off your engine for bank drive-throughs, trains, and during extended traffic delays.
Windows and Air Conditioner
Roll the windows down and turn off the air conditioner. While A/C is a nice luxury, it also requires your car work harder. When possible, opt to roll down your windows rather than turn on the A/C, particularly for short trips.
Check Your Gas Cap
Check your gas cap. A crack or loose gas cap can increase your vehicle’s emissions and vaporize your gas before you can use it.
Recycle, Recycle, Recycle
Whether oil, batteries, tires, or other auto parts, recycle everything and anything that you can. MazTech All Tech Automotive is happy to help if you’re unsure where or how to recycle your used motor oil or car parts.
Fix Leaks Immediately
Dark oil spots on your garage floor can be a good indication that your car needs to have its fluids checked. Being on a regular maintenance schedule will ensure that leaks that occur while your car is running are caught.
