Go Green With a Small Car and Save Money

Updated on January 29, 2011

Go Green With a Small Car and Save Money

You can go green and save money by driving a small car. There are many companies that build small, fuel-efficient vehicles. Most companies have web sites from which you can check out styles, pricing, availability, and even read reviews from industry professionals and consumers.

Save Gas with a Small Car

Smaller vehicles use less fuel. Whether your car fills up with diesel or gasoline, you'll use less of it by switching to a compact, subcompact, or microscopic car. A car like the Smart For2 has a much lower frontal area, thereby decreasing the wind resistance as it moves down the road.

Decrease Your Carbon Footprint

The smaller the car, the less impact it has on the environment. It's cheaper to build because it requires less materials and labor to assemble. It requires less fuel to transport it to the automobile dealer. A train car full of Honda Fits weights less than a train car full of Cadillacs.

When the vehicle reaches the end of its' useful life, there is less material to leave in a landfill. Some of it can be recycled; the plastic and metal components can be processed into other products, but there are always some left-over items that are thrown away.

      There's something wrong with this stoopid hub. It has 15 visits since it was published on 07/19/09 and it's *still* not been indexed by Google.
