Are You Getting the Best Gas Mileage Possible?

Check our checklist now!

A little thought toward basic auto care can lead to more miles per gallon and, in turn, more savings for you! Be car care aware and perform these five simple steps to improve fuel economy and save money.

Use the Right Motor Oil: Improve gas mileage by 1 to 2 percent by using the grade of motor oil recommended by the manufacturer.

Fix It: Addressing a serious maintenance problem, like a faulty oxygen sensor, can improve mileage by as much as 40 percent, according to www.fueleconomy.gov.

Replace Clogged Air Filters: Replacing clogged air filters on older vehicles can improve fuel economy and will improve performance and acceleration on all vehicles.

Check Tire Pressure: Keep tires properly inflated and improve gas mileage by up to 3.3 percent.

Check Engine Performance: Keep your engine running efficiently and improve gas mileage by an average of 4 percent.

“Proactive vehicle maintenance is a motorist’s best money saving tip,” said Rich White, executive director, Car Care Council. “Routine auto care not only helps save on fuel costs, but it helps identify small issues so they can be serviced before they become bigger and more costly to repair.”
