Five Simple Steps to Better Fuel Economy
Check Tire Pressure: Check the sticker on driver’s door for the correct amount of pressure.
Use the Right Motor Oil: Use the oil recommended by the manufacturer. Check your owners manual if you’re unsure. This is really important to help keep your car around for a long time.
Replace Clogged Air Filters: Clean air filters not only improve fuel economy, but your car will run better. And the air you breathe is better for you. You’ll be amazed at how much this helps!
Check Engine Performance: Tune-ups should be completed every 1000,000 miles and any engine concerns fixed as needed.
Fix It: Address a serious maintenance problem right away
“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.”
