How to Transport Thanksgiving Dishes

ThanksgivingIf you’ve been asked to bring green bean casserole or cherry pie to a holiday dinner in the past, you probably already know that it’s a little tricky to transport Thanksgiving dishes in one piece. Follow these tips to keep your food intact during the car ride to dinner.

Buy Travel Dishes

If you plan to transport food with some frequency, you may just want to bypass the hacks and go straight for the travel dishes. There are plenty of travel dishes available with secure lids, and even sets that include insulated travel bags.

Pack with Towels

If you don’t have an insulated bag, packing a warm dish with towels can help keep warmth in too. Cover your dish tightly with plastic wrap and foil and make a little nest with the towels. This can be done inside of a cardboard box for extra security.

Place Items on Floor

Buckling in the gravy might sound like a good idea, but the slant and the cushion of car seats do not offer stability. Place dishes on the floor behind the seats or in the trunk instead. Use a grippy shelf liner beneath the dish to help prevent it from sliding around on the drive.

From your friends at Avery Greene Honda, here’s wishing you a happy, healthy, and filling Thanksgiving.

Fuel Efficiency Tips

Fuel EfficiencyIt’s no secret that Honda vehicles are some of the most efficient options out there. But even if you have a car that sips that gas, you might be able to increase the fuel efficiency even more with these fuel efficiency tips.

Keep it Light

The more a vehicle weighs, the more gas it must use to push itself forward. Thus, if you’re carrying heavy cargo in the trunk or your car or pulling an empty trailer with your SUV you’re using more gas than you need to.

Brake Sparingly

The more you brake and accelerate, the more gas your car uses. Learn how to come to gradual stops and get in the habit of accelerating slowly to make the most out of each tank of gas.

Inflate the Tires

If you’re driving on under-inflated tires, then you’re not getting the maximum fuel efficiency. Keep your vehicle’s tires inflated to the recommended PSI for the best efficiency and traction.

Service Regularly

Having regular service done to your Honda, like getting oil changes and replacing air filters, is one sure way to be certain your car is delivering its best fuel economy.

Don’t Idle

If your car will be running for longer than 30-60 seconds in an idle, turn it off. You’ll use up less gas restarting than you would leaving it on.

If you could use a more fuel-efficient vehicle, today’s lineup of Honda vehicles — available at Avery Greene Honda — are among the most efficient you’ll find.
