CARING FOR YOUR CAR Environmental Awareness Your choice of vehicle can go a long way toward protecting the environment and so can how well you maintain and drive your car. Routine tune-ups, properly inflated tires, regular oil changes and air filter replacement, cooling system maintenance and checking the condition of the gas cap can maximize fuel economy and minimize the amount of pollutants from your car. It is also important to properly dispose of used fluids and components. HOW DO I DO MY PART? Drive Green: Driving technique has a lot to do with your fuel economy.

Also, drive wise and minimize unnecessary miles by doing errands in one trip, getting good directions, and calling ahead. Tune-Ups: Regular tune-ups, maintenance, and having clean air filters will help you burn less gas, pollute less, and prevent car trouble down the line. See pages 11-12 for details on tune-ups.
