Use these easy tips to make your driving habits a little better for the environment.

Drive steadily. 
By maintaining a steady speed, your fuel efficiency will improve and your fuel consumption will decrease. Optimal speeds vary depending on location, type of vehicle, and etc., but maintaining a steady pace on highways will help with your efficiency.

Use cruise control.
Cruise control makes your life easier, and helps with fuel efficiency. Why not put it to use? Make sure you’re safe about it, so don’t use it when you’re on hills or in traffic, but this will help keep your driving speeds steady and save fuel in the long run.

Keep your tires properly inflated. 
You should make sure you’re checking your tires at least once per month. When you do, use your own tire gauge to keep results consistent. If your tire isn’t inflated properly, your fuel consumption can increase by as much as 6{74c5008ee1278570d9464b108df5dc5ed25133ae48a4e67a1ea7c99dbdea486d}.

Reduce your idle time. 
Avoid idling for long periods of time. If you think you’ll be stopped for more than a minute or so, it’s best to turn off the engine, rather than remaining idle. Restarting your car after turning it off actually uses less fuel than letting it idle for more than a minute.

Maintain your car’s efficiency.
Make sure you’re servicing your car regularly. A poor engine can use up to 50{74c5008ee1278570d9464b108df5dc5ed25133ae48a4e67a1ea7c99dbdea486d} more fuel and emissions. Getting your car checked on a regular basis will ensure that you’re traveling in the most efficient way possible.

Keep a tight gas cap.
After you fill up (with Strive Fuel of course 😉 ), be sure to twist your cap until you hear the second click. Gas can evaporate as a vapor if you don’t, wasting fuel and increasing emissions.
