Gleam is proud to be Colorado’s Greenest Car Wash! We have a couple of awesome tips to help you do your part in being as green as possible when it comes to your vehicle.
FUEL YOUR CAR THE PROPER WAY
Did you know that, that last extra pump of gasoline increases the vapors that are released by your tank? Making sure that you stop pumping as soon as the car is full will ensure no extra vapors are released.
AVOID AIR CONDITIONING
Of course, turning on the A/C can be unavoidable in extreme heat, but reducing how often you turn it on can go a long way.
DRIVE MORE EFFICIENTLY
Accelerating quickly or aggressively actually increases the amount of fuel being used to keep the engine going. It’s also important to avoid just sitting in your car with your engine running. Contrary to popular belief, most cars do not require you to “warm them up” before driving.
MAINTAIN YOUR TIRE PRESSURE
If your tires aren’t properly filled, it reduces gas mileage and emits more pollutants into the air.
CONSIDER DIFFERENT FORMS OF TRANSPORTATION
If you can avoid driving, why not? Walking, biking or even carpooling are great options.
We know that electric or hybrid vehicles aren’t always in everyone’s price range, so it is important to do what we can do to keep our environment healthy. We hope these tips will encourage us to take a greener route!
