Your Eco-Friendly Auto Experts
We believe every motorist and mechanic should do their part to protect their environment. While vehicles are bound to emit a certain level of pollutants, we believe that all emissions should be kept to an absolute minimum. While remedying the issues that lead to excessive emissions might be difficult for some, we know how to optimize any vehicle that enters our shop.
Some of the ways we can improve your vehicle's emissions include the following:
Switch to Premium Fuel
The fuel that goes into your vehicle matters as much as the food that goes into your body. Premium fuels contain cleaning agents that can remove dirt from your vehicle's engine. With less dirt blocking fuel lines, emissions will likely decrease.
Book an Oil Change
An oil change can do wonders for any vehicle. Engine oil cools, cleans, and lubricates your vehicle's components. The more often you change the oil, the more efficiently it will do these things.
Change the Air Filters
Many motorists may neglect to think of the air filters in a vehicle, but these components are vital to the performance of your engine. When an air filter becomes clogged and caked with dust, engine airflow reduces dramatically. When an engine has a reduction in airflow, pollutants and harmful deposits build up.
