Is your vehicle harming the environment? Carbon emissions is a natural result of the combustion engine, but if your vehicle is spewing billowing clouds of purple smoke into the atmosphere every time you press the gas pedal, you have much bigger problems.
But not to fear! Here are three ways Dub’s Garage will help you Go Green with your vehicle to reduce the harmful effects on our environment, keep Corpus Christi clean and healthy, and ensure your family is safe as you drive on the roads.
First, have your gas cap tested. The seal inside can be come worn with time, meaning the gas cap can no longer provide a tight seal for your gas tank. On warm days, your gasoline may evaporate straight into the atmosphere! Not only is this harmful for the environment, but it costs you money. The next time you bring your vehicle into Dub’s Garage, ask us about this effect – our technicians will test your gas cap and make sure it is in good condition.
Second, check your car battery. When batteries go bad, they become swollen and corroded and can leak dangerous acid into the environment. Do not throw them away! If these batteries end up in the dumpster, they will leak acid into the soil, ground, and water supplies nearby – bad for everyone! If your car battery has gone bad, bring it into Dub’s Garage. Our technicians will ensure that it is disposed of properly and recycled to avoid this damage.
Finally, have your vehicle inspected! Preventative maintenance is important for keeping your vehicle running smoothly and cleanly. Whether it’s a problem with exhaust or a dirty air filter, our team of expert technicians will catch the problems affecting your vehicle and recommend services to fix the issue. Bring your vehicle in, and the ASE-Certified technicians at Dub’s Garage will thoroughly inspect your vehicle, recommend any needed maintenance, and help you make the right decisions for your vehicle and your family.
Having a clean, green vehicle is easier than it seems… Simply visit Dub’s Garage and ask us how!
