Earth Day - Commit to Cleaner Emissions

I received emails with promotions and reminders of Earth Day, but none of them suggested anything about ensuring your vehicle emits cleaner emissions. The attitude that the next car I buy will leave less of a carbon footprint shouldn't be the current answer. There are many things consumers can do and benefit from doing when it comes to their vehicles.

  • Increasing your fuel economy - install a new engine air filter, check your tire pressure, remove excess weight from your vehicle

  • Drive the speed limit. According to AAA, fuel economy peaks at around 50 mph on most cars, then drops off as speeds increase. Reducing highway speeds by 5 to 10 mph can improve fuel economy by 7 to 14 percent.

  • Avoid a drive-thru if you can and park your car to pick up your order

  • Repair your check engine light - or at least find out why it's on - many states have programs to help people with qualifying income levels repair their vehicles.

So, we need to add car emojis in these kinds of emails...

What are other things that directly benefit people's wallets by saving them money in the long run while being friendly to the environment at the same time?
