Green TipsTrier par:
Remove everything you don’t need from your car trunk. For every 30 kilos in the trunk, your fuel consumption increases by 2%. So by decreasing useless weight, you save on gas!
Remove items such as roof and bikes racks from your car if not in use as they cause air drag. You will increase performance and save on fuel consumption.
For every 8 km/h you reduce highway speed, you can reduce around 7% of your fuel consumption.
Align your tires. A misaligned tire will use around two per cent more fuel and can cause premature tire wear.
Set a reminder to check your tires’ pressure the first of every month to ensure they are fully inflated and automatically save on gas.
Send extra hangers to your local dry cleaners instead of keeping them for too long.
Check to make sure your refrigerator door seals correctly when it closes so that you don’t consume extra energy to keep things cool.
