appropriate maintenance schedule in terms of air filter replacements and
tune-ups. In addition, drivers should have any faulty or worn parts, such as
the oxygen sensor or spark plugs, replaced as soon as possible. Other steps

help vehicles burn gas less quickly. If financially possible, one may
consider replacing their conventional car with one that does not rely solely
on fossil fuels. Available options include electric vehicles that plug in
for power and hybrid vehicles that use both gas and electricity. Alternative
fuels are another option.
