Driving more efficiently (like going easy on the gas pedal and brakes) is often the most effective way to reduce your current vehicle's GHG emissions. Take a look at these tips for driving more efficiently.
Leaving your car at home just two days a week can reduce your GHG emissions by over 3,000 pounds per year. Whenever possible, use public transit, carpool, walk, or bike.
A well-maintained car is more fuel-efficient, produces fewer GHG emissions, and is safer! Get regular tune-ups, follow the manufacturer's maintenance schedule, and use the recommended grade of motor oil.
Under-inflation increases tire wear, reduces fuel economy, and increases GHG emissions. Find the correct tire pressure for your vehicle on your glove compartment door, or on the driver's-side door pillar.
When shopping for a new car, scan the QR Code® on a vehicle's fuel economy & environment label to find additional information online, including personalized fuel cost estimates.
