Be A Greener Driver On Earth Day

Happy Earth Day! Today is a great day to become aware of your carbon footprint and how you can help alleviate the waste you contribute to the planet. CoPilot can help you conserve fuel as well as time.

Check your tires: Properly inflated tires can improve your car’s overall fuel efficiency.

Drive less with Trip Optimization: Try bundling errands together to reduce how far you need to travel. Going back-and-forth to the same part of town on different days to run errands uses more gas than if you planned and did everything in the same area all at once.

You’ve Got Options: Walk, bike, ride the bus or carpool. CoPilot lets you change your method of travel so no matter what you can still get the same directions while being environmentally conscience.

Lessen Your Load: Don’t carry too much weight in your trunk and remove your car’s roofrack when not in use. This will decrease the amount of fuel being used.

Optimize your speed: You will consume up to 25% less fuel if you drive no more than 90 MPH. Our Speed Limit feature allows you to receive an audible warning when you reach or exceed the speed limit by whatever amount of MPH you set.

Speed Limit

Plan Ahead: Whenever possible only drive during non-peak hours.

Obey The Rules: Don’t be an aggressive driver. Studies show that fast starts, weaving in and out of traffic, and accelerating to and from a stop sign or traffic light don’t save much time, but do waste fuel.

 

These are just a few of the many ways that we can help reduce our carbon footprints as drivers. Got any more ideas? Leave them in the comments!
