It’s finally the year 2012, and although the Mayan apocalyptic prediction has yet to come to fruition, there’s no need to push the envelope. It’s time to clean up your act and save the environment from your gas-powered vehicle.
If this altruistic view isn’t appealing, then consider the growingly exorbitant financial burdens associated with filling up your gas-guzzler. That feeling in your gut every time you dispense your hard-earned dough at the pump isn’t going anywhere; it’s time to fight back by downscaling your monster truck ambitions, and joining the shift to clean fuel vehicles.
What better time to make the change than in preparation of a potential summer road trip? As the heat turns up, tone down your gasoline budget; the Nissan Leaf offers 106 City MPG, an astounding number considering the car is a midsize, four door vehicle. If midsize isn’t big enough for your needs, Ford has produced an all-American SUV that combines power and utility with clean fuel efficiency in its Escape Hybrid. Regardless of your specific needs, it is time to bring eco-friendly vehicles into your consumer radar.
