One topic that hits the news in on a regular basis is the price of gas. The answer for some car owners is to buy a vehicle that gets better MPG. For those of us auto owners who don’t want to add a car payment to our monthly expenses, we need to improve our fuel economy any way we can.
Following recommended service intervals by coming into is one of the best ways drivers can keep their minivan running efficiently. That means better MPG. When you give it some thought, it only makes sense. Dirty oil or transmission fluid can’t lubricate or clean. That means more drag which reduces gas mileage.
Keeping up with scheduled oil changes and transmission services will save gas for car owners.
Dirty engine air filters are another efficiency pirate. They rob your sedan engine of enough air to effectively burn the fuel, so you need more gas to get the job done. Replacing a dirty air filter can pay for itself in fuel savings before the next oil change.
You can imagine what dirty fuel injectors can do to your as you drive around . If your pickup owner’s manual recommends a fuel system cleaning, come into and ask us to get it done for you.
A simple, but very effective way for motorists to save gas is to keep their tires properly inflated. Low tires can cost you up to a mile per gallon. Check your tire pressure when you gas up – or at least once a month.
