Make your Car a Green Car


Hybrid Gas Vehicle          Green cars are the way of the future. Green or environmentally friendly cars are cars that do not pollute the environment that much. Green cars can range from electric vehicles, to hybrid gas electric vehicles, to gas powered vehicles that are very fuel efficient. There are ways to make your car greener and lessen the pollution on the environment by raising fuel economy. Follow the steps below to make your car more green.

Step 1

Replace your catalytic converters every 100,000 miles or sooner if any repair is needed. Catalytic converters are the main environmental control system of your vehicle. They reduce your car’s total pollution by converting harmful chemical gases such as carbon monoxide and nitric oxide to water and carbon dioxide. The more efficient your catalytic converter is the more green your car will be.

Step 2

Keep your car tuned up with fresh spark plugs, wires, and ignition coils. Inefficient old electrical components will reduce your green car’s ability to combust fuel which means that your gas mileage goes down and you burn more fuel than you should.

Step 3

Increase your fuel economy by having your fuel injectors flushed out or replaced if you car has over 100,000 miles on it. Also have your fuel filter changed. Any clogged component of your car’s fuel system will greatly decrease its green rating.

Step 4

Reduce the time your car idles in place. This includes when you let the car warm up in the morning before driving, or when you are stuck idling in traffic. Idling wastes precious fuel that pollutes the environment. A green car reduces the total amount of gases released into the environment at all times.

Step 5

Consider replacing your vehicle with a green car such as a full electric vehicle or a hybrid car. Hybrid cars are significantly more fuel efficient than regular cars. In fact some hybrids can get gas mileage of up to 40 or 50 miles per gallon. A full electric vehicle is the ultimate green car. It solely relies on electricity for its operation.
