So what can be done to ensure your car is eco-friendly?
Let’s take a look at a few products and services that will let you do just that:

It works by the common rail principle, which basically means the brains of your computer, or engine control unit (ECU) is being told exactly how much fuel to inject for optimum efficiency and power.
Mobile Installation Service
Mobile installation service basically involves the introduction of automotive technology to your car, from hands-free kits to GPS systems and everything in between. Such technology is eco-friendly for all sorts of reasons; Sat Nav systems save you time, money and reduce fuel emissions, charging systems conserve electricity, and there are tones of eco-friendly, driving-interactive smartphone apps for your mobile which, when connected to your car, can assess how your driving habits affect your fuel economy. One great computer system for your car is the Parrot Asteroid Smart, which has full capability of connecting to the Internet while fitting neatly into the dashboard and also comes with a complete navigation system that can control your steering wheel functioning.
Synthetic Motor Oil
Apparently, making the switch to synthetic motor oil can make your oil last up to three times longer than petroleum-based oil, and can save 15 to 24 quarts of oil per year. There are plenty of articles singing its praises, as g-oil in particular is non-toxic, biodegradable and renewable. Better yet, why not also get a micro green oil filter? This will extend your oil consumption by up to thirty thousand miles, meaning less oil and fewer filters, saving you a considerable amount of money.
Heatshot is a fantastic product that releases heated fluid from your windscreen washer for those icy, hazy mornings. It uses less water, unfreezes your washer nozzles, enhances cleaning performance and extends the life of your wiper blades, meaning a reduction in waste.
