- Avoid Overfilling the Tank – The gas pump will eventually click and tell you when your tank is full of gas. Do not try to fill the tank beyond that point because doing so will create pollution.
– Driving releases a huge number of toxic chemicals into the air and damages the environment. If you can carpool, you will cut down on the amount of pollution that is created.
- Do Not Tailgate – By having to stop and then accelerate again often, you waste gas quickly.
- Get a Fuel-Efficient Car – Not only will a fuel-efficient car pollute less and use up less gas, it will save you money too.
- Inflate Your Tires
– By keeping your tires inflated, you can prevent them from wearing out as fast and increase their lifetime.
- Recycle Your Motor Oil – Every year, the United States puts about 350 million gallons of motor oil into the environment. It is possible that this oil can enter the ground and our water supply. As a result, you should always take your motor oil to a gas station to have it recycled.
- Take the Bus
– Taking public transportation helps to cut down on the number of vehicles on the road, reducing the amount of pollution that is created.
- Take the Railroad – When travelling long distances, railroads are by far the most environmentally friendly option.
