Day 7 Schedule Maintenance on Your Car or Tune Up Your Bike:
Earth Day

April 16

Regular car maintenance improves your car’s performance and reduces your emissions. Keeping your tires properly inflated can save between 400-700 pounds of carbon dioxide emissions per year. Regular replacement of your air, oil and fuel filters enhances engine performance and cuts back on emissions.

The way you drive your car makes a difference, too. You can reduce more than a ton of carbon dioxide emissions per year by accelerating slowly and smoothly, driving the speed limit, maintaining a steady speed, and anticipating stops and starts.

Now that the weather is warming up, get your bike tuned up and ready to ride for those days you plan to use it to get to work or run errands.
