5 Tips to Save Money on Gas and Reduce Air Pollution in Helotes

| By: Christian Brothers Automotive

As citizens of Bexar County, we still need to take care of our air and make sure our cars are running as clean as possible. The technicians at Christian Brothers Automotive Helotes are going to share some tips on how to help cut back on vehicle air pollution and save money on gas at the same time.

How to reduce exhaust fumes and save on gas

  1.    Keep up with regular vehicle maintenance

Simple maintenance such as oil and air filter changes go a long way in helping your car stay strong and efficient. It’s also helpful to take care of repairs as soon as they arise. Many small problems will lead to bigger, more expensive problems in the future.

  1.    Properly maintain your tires

Make sure your tires always have enough tread and air. Tires that are properly inflated have less contact with the road, which reduces friction. If you take care of your tires, your engine won’t have to work as hard.

  1.    Follow the speed limit and drive safely

Driving the speed limit and other safe driving practices will actually help you drive your car more efficiently! More often than not, traffic lights in suburban and city areas will control how quickly you get somewhere, not how fast you accelerate.

  1.    Carpool to work and social events

Carpooling is a great way to save gas and keep one less car off the road. If your coworkers live near by, it may be beneficial to all of you if your carpool. It’s also fun to travel to events with your friends, rather just meeting them there.

  1.    Plan errands into one outing

If you have multiple errands to run, try to plan them in the same outing and as close together as possible. Separating them out will cause you to drive back home repeatedly, which uses up more gas.
