You don't have to give up your car for Earth Day in New Orleans, but you can make it more energy efficient.
It's Earth Day. It's the one day in the year when most everyone becomes a bit more conscious about saving energy. And, ironically, many celebrate it by driving to one or more of the many Earth Day events around New Orleans. But, you don't have to give up your car to prove you care for the Earth. As Safety Insurance Co. points out, you just need to make sure your car is running as efficiently as possible.
"One way to preserve Earth's natural resources is to understand how you can improve your car fuel efficiency," Safety Insurance says. "Consider many changes in your driving habits that will improve gas mileage and qualify you as a 'green driver.'”
Safety offers many driving and auto care tips for New Orleans drivers. Among them:
"Car maintenance. When you service your car regularly, it will operate at peak efficiency. As an example, old spark plugs won't make optimal use of fuel, nor will dirty air and fuel filters. It's estimated that a new oxygen sensor alone can increase gas mileage up to 15 percent. ...
"Tire air. When you keep your tires inflated to the manufacturer's recommended pressure guidelines, you can increase your gas mileage by up to 6 percent. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) states that regular wheel alignments will also increase car fuel efficiency. Reduced fuel economy is linked to low tire pressure."
