Cars significantly contribute to environmental pollution, but there are some ways to make them more eco-friendly. From getting a synthetic oil change, to changing your driving style, learn all about them here.

All Cars Can Be More Environmentally Friendly in Apopka

Modern cars are designed to be greener and more environmentally friendly. But you don’t need to get a new hybrid to reduce your vehicle’s carbon footprint. Most of us don’t have the money to change our cars as we please, but there are still some things we can try to make our vehicles greener. Small changes can help you get more miles out of your gas tank and reduce carbon emissions. Ken Reaser Enterprises brings you this list of tips every car owner can try to make their car kinder to the environment regardless of its brand, model, or year.

Respect Your Scheduled Maintenance

If you want to increase your vehicle’s longevity and reduce its carbon footprint, you need to keep up with its maintenance. You can take it to the mechanic for major jobs and do some regular tune-ups at home, just be sure to be constant. Remember that maintenance includes getting a synthetic oil change, replacing all fluids, and occasionally changing the various filters your car needs to remain clean.

Get a Synthetic Oil Change

Synthetic motor oil does more than just improve your car’s performance and keep the engine clean. It also helps protect the environment. Although synthetic motor oil is not made from greener products, its formula helps reduce the need for constant oil changes, so there’s less product thrown away. Unlike regular oil which needs to be changed around every 3,000 miles (that’s five times in a year!), synthetic can last up to 10,000 miles. Yes, at first getting synthetic oil changes can be pricier, but in the long run, you’d be saving money, and the environment. Go ahead and give AMSOIL’s XL 5W-30 Synthetic Motor Oil a try to see the difference. You can purchase your synthetic motor oil and everything else you need for an AMSOIL Synthetic Oil change at their online store, or you can call Ken Reaser Enterprises at (321) 230-6958 to place your order. Don’t forget to dispose of your used oil safely. Even better, think about oil recycling. You can give that old oil a second life when you send it to an oil recycling program. That old oil can help generate electricity for homes and schools, or it can be re-refined and used as a base for fresh oil.

Check the Tire Pressure

Your tires keep your car rolling. They also affect how your engine works and how much fuel you spend. You need to check the tire pressure at least once a month. Underinflated tires cause the engine to work harder and burn more fuel because they don’t roll as efficiently as properly inflated tires. You can also look into getting low-rolling-resistance tires, which are designed to create less heat and waste less energy.

Refuel Smartly

You’re paying for your fuel so it’s natural that you might want to squeeze every last drop when you’re filling up your tank. But you need to learn to let go once that nozzle automatically stops. That extra pump of gas can overfill your tank and potentially release toxic fumes into the air. Fuel needs space to expand, and it’s impossible to do it if there’s no room left in the gas tank. Also, an overfilled gas tank can also spill fuel which can seep into groundwater. It might sound like the worst case scenario, but it does happen. Another thing you should consider when you’re smartly refueling your gas tank is to use the right grade fuel for your vehicle. Most cars do just fine with regular fuel.

Stop Being Aggressive Driver

Do you enjoy driving fast and breaking faster? You might be an aggressive driver. Not only is aggressive driving risky and dangerous, but it also affects your vehicle’s fuel intake. Driving this way ends up being expensive and polluting. Slow down. You’re not racing other cars each time you go out. You should also make your stops less abrupt and gentler. If you need to be somewhere fast, leave earlier instead of stepping on the accelerator.

Lighten Your Load

The heavier your car is, the more fuel it needs to keep moving. Try to lighten its weight by removing everything you don’t use on a daily basis and keeping only the essential supplies. Get rid of any trash you might be carrying around, and leave your gym bag and other stuff at home.

Save Fuel and Help the Environment With a Synthetic Oil Change in Apopka

Once you switch to synthetic motor oil, you will notice how much better it performs and how much less fuel you’re spending. You can even use AMSOIL’s P.i. Performance Improver Gasoline Additive to make your fuel last longer. Don’t forget that you can get everything you need for an AMSOIL Synthetic Oil change in Apopka, by calling Ken Reaser Enterprises at (321) 230-6958 or visiting their online store.
