Easy ways to save a bit of money on taxes are always relevant – and one surprising way to do so is keeping your car clean. Having a smooth, freshly-waxed car creates less air resistance, meaning your car works less hard, and therefore burns a smaller amount of fuel: so you pay less in fuel tax. Keeping the clutter out of your car reduces the weight and has the same effect.
For those who are thinking about their environmental footprint, reducing the amount of fuel you use through improving your fuel efficiency is one step to making your car travel more environmentally friendly. But it’s also important to consider how you are cleaning your car in aid of this – what method you choose and the cleaning products you opt for also have environmental consequences.
Why is it important to keep your car clean and shiny? You may think that the only real reason is to have a good-looking car, but taxes and safety also play a role. In fact, the fuel efficiency of a clean car is greater than a dirty one. Washing your vehicle would lower your fuel tax.
The yearly revenue of the car wash industry is $5.8 billion. You may wonder why this number is so high, but there are several important reasons for keeping your car clean. Keep reading to learn more about why you should wash your car.
Fuel tax and environmental taxes
If you want to have a smaller tax to pay in terms of your fuel or the gas guzzler tax, you will definitely want to wash your car and keep it spotless. A clean car will have better miles per gallon. Additionally, a waxed or clean car will allow air to flow more quickly across its surface, which will reduce any resistance. That will give it greater miles per gallon and make your car more fuel efficient.
