Purchase Wisely

Your spending power is meaningful. The things you choose to purchase are a reflection of who you are, what you think, and what you value. Your vehicle is a direct representation of the type of person you show the world. That is why purchasing an automobile with environmentalism in mind is important.

To that end, when looking to buy a new car, you should search for specific markers that indicate planet-friendliness. That is the case with Mercedes-Benz’s BlueEfficiency trademark. But what is BlueEFFICIENCY

This label helps you identify their class of vehicles that offer first-rate solutions such as ways to lower power consumption, battery system sensors that aid in efficient storage, filter traps, and emission reduction systems.

Drive Efficiently

A major component of the idea behind driving for efficiency is to not be in a hurry. Drive the speed limit, of course, but do not stress about the need to speed to get somewhere quickly. Instead, give yourself extra time to get where you need to be so you will not be tempted to speed. Speeding wastes petrol and is, of course, unsafe.

Watch this video to learn some best practices for how to achieve greater fuel economy with your vehicle.

Plan Your Route

If you have a lot of small errands to run that all lie in the same general area, plan ahead and save them for the same day. With this strategy, you will not need to drive back and forth to a similar location over multiple days. This plan will save on wear and tear for your car, limit the amount of petrol you will use thus saving you money, and allow you to reserve your money for something much more exciting than fueling up your vehicle at the pump.

To stay organized, gather items for return, drop-off, etc. in one basket or location near an exit door in your home. Keep a list of errands on your phone. Take note of due dates and plan your trip. Part of the planning process is mapping your route. This is an easy task when you use your smartphone’s available tools. 

You probably already know how to get where you need to be, but go ahead and indulge this notion. Enter all of your addresses into an online map to determine where you should stop first, second, etc. You may be surprised at the suggested routes and how much quicker your errands are finished just by mapping the locations in advance.
