How do I get better fuel mileage?

We know the prices at the pump are hard to see and we know you are feeling it at the pump, we are too. We have a few tips to assist you with getting the best fuel mileage from your vehicle.

Make sure your tires have the correct air pressure. On the off chance that they are short on air, it will cause additional drag. Additional drag means less fuel mileage.

Air filter - if your air filter is dirty, it will make your engine work harder, the harder it works the more fuel it uses.

Fuel filter - this concerns mostly larger vehicles like pickups and larger SUVs. They have a fuel filter on the frame rail or engine. These need to be changed regularly. If they are not then it will restrict fuel and the engine will have to work harder causes it to use more fuel.

Engine oil - your engine oil is one of the most important parts of your vehicle. When your engine oil is older it gets contaminated with fuel due to the ignition cycle. This will also affect your drive train and cause your engine to use more fuel. 



Spark Plugs - depending on the manufacturer your engine will need spark plugs between 30,000 and 100,000 miles. This depends on your engine. Over the course to those miles the spark plugs wear out due to the spark plug gap increases due to the spark created to fire your engine. 

A fuel additive may help increase your mileage by cleaning out deposits in your engine. It will also help your fuel burn cleaner and creates less deposits to be cleaned out later. 

We know fuel prices are high, and we want to help you save money where you can. Give us a call and let us take care of you.
