FAIRFIELD, CA – With high gas prices leading to higher operating costs, Vaca Valley Auto Parts decided to take action. The Fairfield, Calif.-based company has added four Prius C Hybrids to its delivery fleet, resulting in immediate savings.

“With the cost of fuel these days, we decided to take steps to reduce our delivery costs,” said Jack Martin, president and founder of Vaca Valley Auto Parts. “Finally, we took the leap, purchasing four Prius c Hybrids and putting them into service. We have seen a big reduction in fuel costs and expect the payback to come in two years.”

As part of introducing its new Prius c Hybrid delivery vehicles, Trevor Martin, vice president and general manager of Vaca Valley, designed a “Vaca Valley Goes Green” promotion for its customers. To celebrate, Vaca Valley gave every customer with an invoice more than $100 a Lotto Scratcher ticket for a chance to win some extra “green.”  In addition, those customers who did not have a winning lottery ticket were eligible for a second-chance bonus drawing to win such prizes as an iPad, LCD television, and a Federated Racing hospitality package at Infineon Raceway in Sonoma.

Vaca Valley Auto Parts was formed in 1974. The Vaca Valley Auto Parts staff of ASE-certified professional counterpeople serves a variety of customers, including professional installers, fleet, and industrial and marine customers.
