If you are a US driver, then you should still be counting yourself lucky. Because the amount you are spending on fuel every year is still among the cheapest by the gallon anywhere on the planet. Speaking of which, not enough drivers seem to be preoccupied with this right now, but the planet is taking quite a nasty pounding. That’s thanks to your everyday driving which, in many cases, simply cannot be helped. That’s because the truck or sedan you’re driving every day is part of your business inventory.
The car or truck you drive every day is your tool of trade. But just think what it’s all costing you when you add it all up. Think about how much you’re still spending on fuel every month, and don’t you wish you could be saving by the gallon? You can, you know. Start researching new models being released this year, and maybe next year already and measure its fuel economy against the truck you’re still driving. The big galoot you’re using is guzzling a lot, not so. And it’s not only costing you on what would have been a good fuel economy, it’s costing you in other areas too.
It’s wear and tear from everyday use. The heavier the fuel load being used, the more taxing it becomes on other areas of your vehicle, particularly your engine and its parts and components. And would you believe it; just by leaving the air conditioner on the whole time, you’re wasting fuel. Just by parking your vehicle on the side of the road in the hot sun while you’re attending to one of your many customers, you’re wasting fuel. If you want to make money for your business, this waste needs to stop.
