Do just one thing

Sherbrooke Record - - LOCAL SPORTS - By Danny Seo

If you're go­ing to the mall this week­end, make the ef­fort to park your car in a shaded spot un­der a tree or in­side a park­ing garage. Shade helps keep your car cooler, which means you won't need as much air con­di­tion­ing to cool down the car when you re­turn. Keep­ing your car as cool as pos­si­ble nat­u­rally also helps to re­duce the evap­o­ra­tion of gaso­line in your gas tank. Gaso­line evap­o­rates all year long, re­gard­less of what sea­son it is, but the hot sum­mer months are the worst for gas loss. So even if there is a spot right at the en­trance to the mall in the bright, hot sun, park fur­ther away in the shade -- and you'll save gas, money and get a lit­tle ex­er­cise, too.
