Conservation Counts

You can immediately cut your own gasoline use by following these recommendations from Organic Gardening and the U. S. Department of Energy:

  • Drive sensibly (obey the speed limit and avoid rapid acceleration and braking)
  • Replace your car's air filter when it's dirty-boosts gas mileage by 10%
  • Keep tires at the recommended air inflation: 3% improvement
  • Use the recommended grade of motor oil: 1 to 2% improvement
  • Buy a more fuel-efficient vehicle. Drive less; carpool; plan car use. Take the train
talk about going green.....
