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.
