You may not be able to make your engine more fuel-efficient, but good driving habits and overall vehicle maintenance can increase your gas mileage. Here’s how:
- Keep tires inflated to proper level at all times.
- Fill your gas tank at the coolest part of the day to reduce expansion of the tank and get a true fill-up.
- Keep your oil changed on time. Clean oil is related to emissions—dirty oil can cause a failure at the emissions station. Poor emissions and poor air-fuel mixture result in reduced gas mileage and increased pollution.
- Make sure your engine air filter is clean and replace when needed.
- Vehicle interior cabin air filters are for your personal environment. We are surprised at how soon these filters become restricted. The restriction of these filters can contribute to the reduced flow of cool air, making your condenser work harder, and using more gas. Change these filters for the air that you breathe. Please note not all vehicles are equipped with cabin air filters.
