Five Ways to Make Your Vehicle Greener

The automotive industry is known to be the one industry that is not the most environmentally friendly.

With over 600,000 licensed cars in the UK alone, environmentalists are regarding how to improve their impact on the planet.

From the daily commute to automotive production, roads are busier than ever, and many people rely on them for their everyday tasks. Similarly, the end of a car’s life doesn’t mark the end of its environmental impact.

With events like the Volkswagen Diesel Emissions Scandal shining a light on the environmental shortcomings of the world’s major car manufacturers, drivers are taking a more conscious approach than ever towards their consumption.

As diesel vehicles cause more than four times the pollution than petrol cars, you must regularly maintain your car, along other things. If you have purchased a diesel car between 2008 and 2019, you may be eligible for a diesel emission claim, depending on the brand of the vehicle.

With the automotive industry evolving, it becomes more and more prominent to become greener and serve the planet as best as possible. Here are five ways you can contribute to the environment by making your vehicle greener.

Regular maintenance

A well-maintained car is an environmentally friendly car and keeps it running smoothly! You’re doing your part if you’re already showing up for your maintenance schedule. Regular maintenance ensures your car runs more efficiently, reduces carbon emissions, and helps you save money. It ensures that your car parts optimized for monitoring and reducing emissions are performing well. Regular tune-ups can result in a 4 percent boost In your gas mileage.

Purchase eco-friendly tires

Eco-friendly tires are great for reducing emissions and boosting gas mileage. They’re not only made from environmentally safe materials such as synthetic rubber bands but also feature improved rolling resistance. Now readily available, eco-friendly tires are also designed to reduce overall fuel consumption. As a general rule of thumb, check your tires every month to ensure they’re also properly inflated.

Maintain a steady speed

While it’s tempting to hit a little harder on the gas pedal when traveling down empty stretches of highway, it can save a lot of fuel to maintain a steady speed and reduce how often you ta breaks. As speeding can decrease the fuel economy due to tire rolling resistance and air resistance, maintaining your speed limit to 35 to 50 mph is ideal.

Lighten things up

You can improve fuel economy by removing excess weight from your vehicle. This includes removing your roof sack if it’s not in use as it can spike fuel consumption. The more you store in your vehicle, the more likely gas will be used to haul all that load.


Use safer cleaning methods.

A few differences, such as cleaning your car, can make a huge difference as an eco-friendly auto-owner. You can switch to a waterless car instead of the hose to save a lot of water. Usually, the typical hose and bucket car wash at home uses 90-140 gallons of water, and a published car wash uses 45 gallons per wash. But a waterless wash? Just 4-6 ounces of water!

Using waterless products and typical sprays, you can quickly clean your car and leave a protective finish on.  

Conclusion

Although the automobile industry is polluting, with these tips, you can ensure your vehicle is greener and positively impacts the environment.
