Show the Earth some love by keeping up with regular car care maintenance in Ponchatoula and surrounding areas.
Today is officially Earth Day although a lot of us celebrated a bit early with last weekend’s Earth Day Festival and Solar Derby. Kind of makes you wonder if there’s any way left to celebrate Earth Day on Earth Day.
Well, yes, there is something you can do today and every day. You can show your car or truck some love by regular car care maintenance – from oil changes to making sure your auto air is working and isn’t leaking fluids.
“Being car care aware and performing basic vehicle maintenance go a long way toward protecting the environment and improving fuel economy,” said Rich White, executive director of the non-profit Car Care Council.
The council has three suggestions for Earth Day and every day:
- “Follow a vehicle service schedule including steps like checking engine performance, keeping tires properly inflated, replacing air filters regularly, changing oil regularly and checking your gas cap. Routine maintenance helps reduce emissions and fuel consumption, saving money at the pump.
- “Keep your current vehicle longer and limit the number of new cars you buy over the course of a lifetime. Extending vehicle life is as simple as taking care of your vehicle properly. You’ll gain years of reliable service without monthly car payments and higher insurance rates. …
- “Repower your engine when faced with serious engine trouble. A remanufactured/rebuilt engine can give your vehicle new life and make it more fuel efficient for about the cost of an average down payment on a new car.”
