Spring Driving Series: Earth Day

April 22 is Earth Day.  This is always a good time of year to review what you are all doing to reduce your ecological footprint.

At Jake's Auto & Truck Repair, we do what we can to be environmentally aware.  Some of the steps we take are as follows:
  • Recycle all of the used fluid
  • Return batteries to factory
  • Recycle scrap metal
  • Recycle parts (i.e. send cores back to manufacturer)
  • Promote vehicle maintenance
  • Use environmentally friendly cleaning solvents
If you are looking for some ways that you too can be more environmentally minded when it comes to your vehicle, try the following:
  • Reduce weight.  Take out the extra junk.
  • Use the recommended fuel.
  • Avoid sudden starts and stops.
  • Check your tire pressure.
  • Park in the shade, and use a/c only when needed.
  • Get regular tune-ups
This is a group effort.  If we all work together, we can save our planet for future generations.
