How can I choose an environmentally friendly car ?

One of the main causes of aggravating air pollution is cars. Choosing the right car to buy and our habit of driving plays a vital role in affecting us both short and long term. Not all people can spend for expensive cars that save gas however; we can make smart decisions with what we have. Here are some factors to consider when choosing a car to buy and be friendlier with the environment.

First is to figure out what size of car you need, you can base your decision on the number of members in your family. If you only have three family members, a bid SUV would be unnecessary. If you have a small family, you can just get a small, lightweight car that requires only half the fuel compared to SUVs.

Do not purchase a car with options that you do not need. Power steering and air conditioning features both releases harmful chlorofluorocarbons even if not in use. If you have a cold climate, air conditioning would be unnecessary and if you really need the feature, you can install devices that can recycle harmful CFC in your car.

If you do not want to spend money for air conditioning, you can just get a car with tinted or slightly colored windows. This feature is much cheaper and this will make your car capable of staying cooler even in hot weather. Regarding the car wheels, you can consider using radial tires; they are proven more cost effective and this kind of tires can improve over all miles per gallon.

Remember to think of two factors when choosing an earth-friendly car, first is the air pollution emission and fuel economy. You will see fuel emission sticker on the car’s window, it reads the gas usage in miles per gallon. You are actually getting several benefits with fuel economy cars. Besides making the nation less dependent in oil, you also save the earth by releasing less carbon dioxide. The air pollution-emission sticker is under the car’s hood, these cars cleanly burns gasoline. So, before you get a car, check for both emission and mpg-rating stickers.
