Even if you don’t drive a zero-emission vehicle, you can still practice environmentally friendly driving. Greener Ideal offers some tips on how to green up your commute, even with a gas-guzzler.

One piece of advice is to drive at a reasonable speed. Speeding can be fun, but it’s not exactly fuel efficient (or safe). Gradual acceleration is another way to save fuel, as is switching your car off when it’ll be stationary for more than 30 seconds.

Factors like the weight of your car load and your choice of tires also influence fuel efficiency.
