The New Year is fast approaching, and you’re likely trying to put together some resolutions so you can start the new decade off on the right foot. Your friends at El Dorado Mazda suggest the following tips to help you go green in 2020.
Routine vehicle maintenance: Believe it or not, one of the easiest ways to go green — and save some green — is by regularly maintaining your vehicle. Things like tire inflation, air filter cleanliness, and tune-ups can impact your fuel efficiency by up to 40 percent. By ensuring your vehicle is as fuel efficient as possible, you consume and pollute less.
Shop locally: Local businesses like El Dorado Mazda impact the local economy directly and do not contribute as much as huge conglomerates to the global warming crisis. By supporting your local community, you also have the pleasure of enjoying goods and services that are authentic and friendly.
No more pedal to the metal: Consider driving slower on the highway. You use 15 percent more gasoline when you drive 75 mpg versus 65 mpg, but you only shave off a few extra minutes from your trip.
Your El Dorado Mazda family wishes you a happy New Year.
