Environment

We are all concerned about the environment. As drivers, we have to take our ecological responsibility seriously. Here are a few helpful tips that can reduce your vehicle's impact on the environment and save you money.

  • Keep your vehicle well-maintained, a misfiring spark plug can reduce fuel efficiency by up to 30%, follow the NAPA AUTOPRO service guidelines
  • Maintain your air conditioner and use only when necessary
  • Avoid unnecessary or sudden changes in speed
  • Shut off the engine when stopped, avoid excessive idling
  • Plan your trip for the most efficient route to your destination
  • Consolidate daily errands to minimize the use of your vehicle
  • Keep tires properly inflated
  • Replace a clogged air filter (this can improve gas mileage up to 10%)
  • Drive within the speed limit (this can reduce fuel consumption by 20%)
  • Remove unnecessary roof racks and weight from your vehicle
  • Use a vehicle technician that recycles or disposes of all used materials in an environmentally responsible manner

Canadian Winters

Canadian winters can be hard on our vehicles. Following some common sense tips, along with the instructions in your owner's manual will help your vehicle start better and stay on the road.

Our experts recommend:

  • Change your summer or all-season tires to winter/snow tires
  • Inspect your battery for wear before the start of the season
  • Use the right grade of oil, optimized for winter use
  • Use a block heater (it can ease starting in cold weather)
  • Reduce added weight by removing snow from your vehicle before driving

Ask your AUTOPRO Service Advisor how a Autopro Winter Service can optimize your car's performance in cold weather.

 

We are here to Serve You Better.
