Maintaining the Vehicle is Important
A well maintained vehicle will help to save you money over time. This is because a vehicle that is working properly will use less fuel than a vehicle that is poorly maintained. Regular maintenance with the vehicle also helps to ensure that you are getting the best mileage that your vehicle can provide. Besides saving money at the pumps, you can save money on any unexpected repair bills. By maintaining the vehicle, you can notice when a part is staring to show signs of wear and tear. This will reduce the chance that the vehicle breaks down unexpectedly when you least expect it. Proper maintenance will help you to have a safe and reliable ride.
Check the Engine Air Filter
An air filter that is blocked can make the engine work harder in the long run. It will also cost you more in miles per gallon. If you are not sure about the air filter, make sure to contact us. We can set up an appointment to inspect the air filter, and change it if necessary.
Check the Tire Pressure Regularly
The tires should be inspected on a regular basis to ensure they are properly inflated. Under inflated tires are harder to turn, so the engine needs to work harder to go the same distance. Over inflated tires will wear quickly and end up needing to be replaced sooner than they typically should. Make sure the ties are inflated to the proper pressure. This can be found in the vehicle owner’s manual or inside the driver’s door. You can also bring the vehicle in and we can inspect the tires for you. Also remember to drive at the posted speed limit. Driving even ten miles per hour over the speed limit can result in spending more at the pumps. Driving at the posted speed limit can help give you up to ten percent better gas mileage when you travel.
