How can I make my Yamaha Zuma Scooter/Moped more environmentally friendly?
posted by dpollitt to Travel & Transportation (10 answers total)
I have a 2005 2 stroke 49cc Yamaha Zuma scooter. I drive this for a variety of reasons, but have really come to appreciate the gas efficiency as of this past year. Many people have told me that scooters/mopeds actually pollute and emit more toxins then an average car. I was unable to find much info about this online, but still want to find out if I can improve on this at all.
I am not an expert in cars, but would using a full synthetic oil help or hurt how environmentally friendly this engine is? What other options would I have, even if I have to modify parts like the exhaust?
Any websites about scooters and the environment, or helpful forum links are appreciated.
