Get Around Green Tips
• Use regular gasoline unless your owner’s manual says otherwise. Unless your car requires premium, high-octane fuels improve neither fuel economy nor performance and will just waste your money.
Here are some tips we've come across. Feel free to add your own:
• Keep your tires properly inflated. Tires should be inflated to the pressure recommended for your vehicle; usually you can find this number inside the door frame or in your owner’s manual. For every three pounds below recommended pressure, fuel economy goes down by about 1 percent. Tires can lose a pound of pressure a month, so check pressure regularly, and especially before going on a long trip or carrying heavy loads. Also: Don’t buy “aggressive” tread tires if you don’t need them.
For those times when you've just gotta drive your own car, here are some tips to help keep you fuel-efficient.
If you live or work in Concord, take advantage of PATH. The Program for Alternative Transportation and Health is a service offered by the Central New Hampshire Regional Planning Commission. The goal: to reduce the number of single-occupancy vehicle trips in and around the Concord area by promoting alternatives to driving alone.
We all need to get around, and in much of New Hampshire, there aren’t as many public transportation options as you’d find in a big city.
