Be Car Care Aware:  May was Car Care Month and I was very busy going across the country touting the virtues of why you should take care of your car and how it will save you money if you do.  Did you know that a dirty air filter can reduce your fuel economy by as much as 10% or that you should be checking your tire pressures at least one a month?  These two things can significantly impact your fuel economy and yet many of us can't be bothered, but we'll sure complain about the gas prices!  In addition to many radio, television and newspaper interviews Car Care Canada held car check events across the country.  These car check events were free to consumers and it was a 10 minute visual inspection of your vehicle by a certified technician.  After the inspection, the driver was given a report of the findings and they were free to do what they wanted afterwards.  In addition to this, I gave "mini" car care clinics at Seniors Centers which were great fun!  Here are a couple of photos from the events.  Everyone needs to take care of their car so they will be safer on the road and it will save them money in the long run.   bccaseniors1.jpg
