Go Green --- Drive Smart

As gasoline prices rise, the advantages of using fuel efficiently increase. Here are some tips to help you go green:

  • Inflate your tires to recommended air pressure. If your tires are not fully inflated, your vehicle's engine must consume more fuel to travel at the same speed.
  • Maintain steady driving speeds, ease off the gas pedal in anticipation of the need to slow or stop, and minimize rapid accelerations.
  • Follow the speed limit on the highway. At higher speeds, it takes more fuel to overcome wind resistance and road friction.
  • Close your windows and use internal vents to reduce wind resistance on the highway.
  • Avoid idling during warm weather and minimize idling during cold weather.

Of course, one of the best ways to reduce your fuel consumption is to leave the driving to us. Boston Chauffeur is committed to going green, and conserving fuel and energy.
