We should all worry about our environmental impact. From recycling to consuming less plastic to making your car greener. Here's a guide to make your car more eco-friendly.

You Don’t Need to Get a New Car to Care for the Planet

Most of us worry about the environment and the impact we have on it. Unfortunately, our cars play a significant role in contaminating the environment. Although, modern vehicles are designed to be more eco-friendly. However, not all of us have the power to acquire a new car even if we want to save the planet. Still, there are some things everyone can do to make their car more eco-friendly. The key to having a greener car is to reduce how much fuel you burn and the number of carbon emissions you sent out to the environment. Huff Oil Group has enlisted some ways in which you can reduce your emissions to make your car in Fayetteville more eco-friendly.

Regular Tune-ups

Regularly maintaining your car can help you extend its longevity and reduce its carbon footprint. Many maintenance tasks can be easily done at home, but for major jobs, you will need to take your vehicle to the mechanic. Try to stay constant with your car’s tune-ups. Don’t forget to get a synthetic oil change, replace all the fluids, and change the various filters your vehicle needs to remain clean.

Get a Synthetic Oil Change

A synthetic oil change can help keep your engine sludge free, improve your car’s performance, and protect the environment. The reason why synthetic oil is friendlier to the atmosphere is not that it’s made from green products, but because you need to change it less often than regular oil. The less you need to change your oil, the less product you throw away. Yo need to replace conventional oil around every 3,000 miles, that’s about five times a year. Synthetic oil, on the other hand, can last up to 10,000 miles if you use an option like AMSOIL’s XL 5W-30 Synthetic Motor Oil. Switch to AMSOIL Synthetic Oil, and you’ll notice the difference. Contact Huff Oil Group at (910) 988-9328 to get special recommendations and place your order or head to their online store. Oh, one more thing! After you change your oil, be sure to dispose of it safely. You should also consider recycling it. Your old oil can be used to generate electricity for homes and schools, or it can be re-refined and used as a base for new oil.

Take Care of the Radiator

Engines run at high temperatures, and if not properly lubricated, the friction between the metal components that make it up can soon cause your engine to overheat. Overheating is not good for your engine’s performance. It causes your motor to burn off fuel inefficiently, and it can even cause the radiator gasket to blow due to the extreme heat. The radiator and the cooling system help keep the engine at an appropriate temperature. There’s a thermostat that tells the radiator how hard it needs to work to regulate the temperature. If there’s a problem with the thermostat, it will affect your engine. Have your cooling system and radiator checked if you notice the temperature gauge on your dashboard is acting differently. Taking care of the cooling system can improve your fuel economy, avoid costly repairs, and help the environment.

Check the Emissions System

The emissions system minimizes the number of fumes that come out of the tailpipe. If there’s even a minimal thing wrong with it, the greenhouse gases your vehicle produces can double. Your car will let you know if there’s something wrong. Keep an eye to check if something lights up on your dashboard and have your car examined right away. Cars are legally obligated to meet a specific emissions standard to reduce smog and keep the air clean, according to The Environmental Protection Agency. It’s your responsibility to make sure your car does.

Drive Calmly

If you’re prone to driving fast and braking hard, you’re probably an aggressive driver. Yes, driving fast can be exhilarating, but it’s also risky, dangerous, and it affects your fuel intake. Driving aggressively ends up being more expensive and polluting. You don’t need to race other vehicles to get to where you want to go. Instead, you should leave earlier and be gentler on the accelerator and brake.

Make Your Car Lighter

All that extra weight that you’re carrying around in your car makes the engine need to work harder and consume more fuel to keep moving. Try to bring only the essential supplies with you, unload everything you don’t need on a daily basis, and get rid of any garbage that might be collecting in your vehicle.

Make Your Car Greener With a Synthetic Oil Change in Fayetteville

Not only will getting an AMSOIL Synthetic Oil change help improve your car’s performance, but it will also help you get more mileage out of your gas tank, and keep the air clean. You can get everything you need for a synthetic oil change in Fayetteville by calling Huff Oil Group at (910) 988-9328 to place your order, or you can also visit their online store. Be sure to ask about AMSOIL’s P.i. Performance Improver Gasoline Additive to help your car be even more fuel efficient.
