MPG Car Rental Encourages an Eco-Friendly Approach to Life

MPG Car Rental supports green living in Los Angeles, beginning with their hybrid rental cars

LOS ANGELES, Nov. 9, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- MPG Car Rental, located in Venice, California, is the leading provider of green rental cars in Los Angeles. The company's all-green fleet of rentals is comprised of hybrid, clean diesel, and electric cars that range from mid-sized to SUV. The company provides hybrid car rental options to a niche market that continues to grow in leaps and bounds. Global warming and rising gas prices have prompted an increasing number of Americans to consider owning or renting green vehicles. The owners and employees at MPG Car Rental take an active role in educating and encouraging their customers to make environmentally-conscious, money-saving choices, starting with the cars they choose to drive.

One of the obvious benefits of driving an eco-friendly car is the reduction in money spent on fuel. For example, the Toyota Prius C that is available through MPG Car Rental is a very lightweight car, getting 53mpg on surface streets and 46mpg on the highway. If you are renting a fuel-efficient car like the Prius C, the Honda Insight, or are interested in the highly-rated electric Chevy Volt for rental, the driver will not only conserve money on the rental itself. The customer will reduce the amount of money that he or she usually spends to keep their fossil-fuel vehicle running.

To encourage the customer's interest in not only renting but purchasing a hybrid car, MPG Car Rental offers a special test-drive program. When the customer test-drives one of the clean diesel, electric, or hybrid cars in the green fleet, the company will reimburse the first four days of rental when the driver proceeds to purchase the same car from the dealership. The customer may return to MPG Car Rental with purchase information to receive the reimbursement on his or her new Volkswagen TDi Jetta, Beetle TDi, or one of the other green autos initially test-driven at MPG Car Rental.

MPG Car Rental is always conscious of their customers' concerns during the course of the car rental process. An employee will be happy to give the customer a complimentary ride to or from the rental depot in a timely manner. The company provides new and returning customers with monthly discounts, available through the website or at the time of rental.  The customer is often pleasantly surprised by the money-saving opportunities that arise when working with an MPG Car Rental associate. One can swiftly make a reservation online or schedule a pick-up time and choose the automobile over the phone in a matter of a few minutes. Additional conveniences are provided to customers, such as the ability to recycle old cell phones and printer inkjets at the rental agency. MPG Car Rental promotes sustainability across the board through reducing carbon emissions, encouraging recycling, and saving the customer money.

For more information regarding our green fleet and the current discounts available, please visit MPG Car Rental online at www.mpgcarrental.com, or call 877.870.7821.

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...
The need for greater agility and scalability necessitated the digital transformation in the form of following equation: monolithic to microservices to serverless architecture (FaaS).

You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.
