After meeting with Greta Thunberg, Arnold Schwarzenegger has made his car more environmentally friendly. His $100,000 Pinzgauer has been fixed up to include a low-displacement engine instead of the diesel guzzling previous one.

The Pinzgauer is known to have gas mileage of 20-30 miles per gallon. The new engine, from S-Tec, will improve the mileage. The upgrades took place at S-Tec in Hamburg, which caused the actor and former governor to fly back and forth to Germany several times.

Schwarzenegger met Thunberg and wrote of their meeting on Instagram, “It was fantastic to see my friend and one of my heroes @gretathunberg last week and go on a bike ride around Santa Monica together and I was so pumped to introduce her to my daughter Christina. Keep inspiring, Greta!”

Schwarzenegger said of his environmental lifestyle, “I am on a crusade worldwide to reduce greenhouse gases and not have seven million people die a year from Pollution.” Both Schwarzenegger and Thunberg have also switched to a vegan diet for environmental reasons. In addition to going vegan, Thunberg shared some amazing tips on the Ellen DeGeneres Show for those looking to live a more sustainable lifestyle.
