Making small changes in the way you drive and performing basic maintenance on your vehicle will save you money on pollution-causing fuel. Plus, you'll reduce your greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.
Start by driving slower, getting regular tune-ups including oil changes and reducing your heating and air-conditioning usage. Remember that jack rabbit starts consume 50% more fuel than steady acceleration and low tire pressure can cause your car to use 3-5% more fuel.
