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've been taking my two family cars to this shop for the last three years and have always had good service. Jeff is an excellent mechanic and is honest, thorough and reliable in everything he does, which is the most important part for me. I've even had an instance where the repair went bad and he fixed everything at no charge and apologized for the inconvenience. I always receive a call when the car is ready; and, since the gas station is open late, I can pick up the car at just about any time. Labor rate and parts costs are about average for the area, and its no problem if you want to bring your own parts to them. Highly recommended.

The best in car care! Honest, trustworthy, thorough, very professional, friendly, reliable...I cannot say enough to capture the best service and people in car care service! Thank you, Jeff, Gus, et al.
