Easy Steps to Better Gas Mileage

Easy Steps to Better Gas Mileage




The Car Care Council encourages motorists to be car care aware and perform these five simple steps to improve fuel economy and save money.




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

  2. Use the Right Motor Oil: Improve gas mileage by 1 to 2 percent by using the grade of motor oil recommended by the manufacturer.
  3. Replace Clogged Air Filters: Replacing clogged air filters on older vehicles can improve fuel economy and will improve performance and acceleration on all vehicles.

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

  5. Fix It: Addressing a serious maintenance problem, like a faulty oxygen sensor, can improve mileage by as much as 40 percent, according to The US Department of Energy.


"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."

I just had them complete some more work on my car and I am so pleased with the time they got it done and the quality of the work. For me it seems like you're not just a customer but someone that they care to do good work for and be proud of. In my eyes they have succeeded. Their prices are fair. I will continue to have all my car needs done at their garage.
