Tips and Tricks 

Driving a vehicle is good for it. If you let a vehicle sit for too long, it can cause problems. Moisture can get into the fuel tank and make your vehicle work harder to start. Driving a vehicle for a few minutes a day, reaching 50 miles per hour is a good idea. You can also do this a few times a week as well. Warming up the vehicle for a few minutes a day won’t cut it. 

Disinfect your Vehicle 

Before going for a ride to the grocery store, you should disinfect your vehicle. You should use a wash cloth or disinfectant wipes on surfaces that are touched often. These spots are the steering wheel, dashboard, door handles, gear shift and sound system. Although you should be careful with disinfecting the sound system to preserve the electronic capabilities.
