Going green means conserving resources that are worthwhile saving, such as the following:
- Petroleum fuels
- Recyclable materials
- Efficient transportation
Conserving Petroleum Fuels
Articles have been written that show all of the ways that you can save gasoline. For example, such articles give tips like leaving the engine in neutral when idle in traffic.
A more dramatic way to save gas is to use a special type of catalyst pill that you drop into your gas tank every time you fill up. This pill is NOT to be confused with simple detergent pills which merely clean combustion surfaces. Due to increased engine efficiency of the catalyst pill, the following advantages result:
- Reduces exhaust emissions – a handy fix for passing inspection with an old car!
- Increases horsepower
- Saves gasoline – this is more worthwhile than ever due to ever-increasing gasoline costs; savings are a whopping 20% on each tankful of gas! Savings of 7% are possible even on diesel engines.
Even saving money alone makes the pill worthwhile. The pill only costs 3.2% of a tankful of gas, yet the tankful of gas will take you 20% further, for a net gain of 16.8%.
The chart below shows a comparison of the savings achieved for different cars:
To learn more about these pills and how to order them, I recommend you visit www.gassaverpills.yolasite.com.
Run the water slowly when manually washing dishes.
Run your washing machine on the quick wash cycle.
Wash your car using a bucket of water; hose down your car for rinsing off soap only.
Set up a drip watering system for your plants, shrubs, and trees as necessary.
Maximizing Food Production and Minimizing Waste
If you have some yard space, or even a balcony, you can grow some space efficient hydroponic growers. Hydroponics is the process of growing plants without soil in a nutrient-rich solution. The main advantage is that you can grow large amounts of food in a small space.
Determine how much you will eat before the food spoils, and only purchase that amount.
Recycling Used Materials
Many cities now have recycling centers for plastic bottles or used paper. There are still certain varieties of plastic and glass bottles that can be returned for money. Most recently, there are even containers that cities are providing to collect compost.
I use small plastic bags from the grocery store to put in wastebaskets around the home.
Use Green Transportation
Use a regular or electric bicycle to get around your hometown. Use your car only when the weather is inclement. Prices of electric bicycles have become quite competitive now that a market has been established. Bags and baskets can be placed on the bicycle to carry groceries. I’ve even seen three-wheeled bicycles around my hometown.
Putting a bike rack on your car is a good idea when visiting major cities. You can park just outside of the city and ride your bike to save time, gas, and parking expenses. Some cities even provide bicycles that you can rent by the hour or by the day.
At present, it does NOT appear feasible to purchase hybrid cars as they are not only substantially more expensive than non-hybrid cars, they require very expensive battery replacements from time to time.
An interesting commuter car being developed in France runs on air! Like compressed air tools, these experimental cars run off compressed air tanks and are good for daily commuting between nearby cities. The tanks are being specially designed to become safe even when involved in car crashes. The design of the engine is the same as the standard internal combustion engine! The “air” car is ideal for future ground transportation, especially for commuters. A recent article outlining the 117 mpg car is here: http://tinyurl.com/b7n7jpf.
