Green Tips for Cars: Lighten Your Load

Looking for ways to save gas and increase your fuel economy? Then it’s time to Lighten Your Load.

Clear your car of extra baggage and you can improve your fuel economy by two percent for every 100 pounds.

Are you still carrying around that extra car seat from your nephew’s visit last month? Do you have luggage leftover from your last road trip? If you don’t need it, then why are you still lugging it around?

Empty your trunk! Clean out that back seat! A light-weight car will burn less gas whether your zipping around town or zooming along the highway.

Saving money on gas is sweet. But even better than that, when you’re getting better gas mileage, you’re also using less energy and creating less pollution. And the smell of fresh air is a sweetness that just can’t be bought.
