You may have noticed the changing gas prices in this changing economy that only seem to keep increasing. While it is hard to change the price of gas as you wish, there are some ways in which you can improve your miles per gallon or mpg. By enhancing your mpg, you can lower the frequency at which you visit the gas station to fill up, and in the process, you save money! We welcome you to learn more about ways to improve your mpg to make each gallon last longer!
In this month’s blog, we will be addressing your fuel economy and how you can save at the pump! The professional staff at Yorba Linda Auto Service wants you to know that you are not alone; we are all experiencing economic change, especially in gas prices. But with our expertise, we want to teach you some ways in which you can get the most out of every gallon!
The air pressure in your tires, or PSI, can affect your mpg more than you think. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, for every 1 PSI missing in your tires, you can expect to lose .1 percent of your gas mileage. Not only does this affect your mpg, but your tires can also wear out around 10 percent faster as well. We recommend having your tires inspected to ensure the PSI is right on.
Having correctly aligned tires means your car is running smoothly. This reduced your engine’s workload as it doesn’t have to excerpt more force. Like the tire pressure mentioned above, your vehicle’s alignment impacts your tires. An uneven alignment means your tires are wearing down faster, and we would not want you to spend on new tires when you have to budget more for gas. Bring your car in by Yorba Linda Auto Service for the best alignment services in the industry!
An essential part of your vehicle’s health is scheduled maintenance. The services in scheduled maintenance include oil changes, tune-ups, timing belt replacement, and inspections of your entire operating system. All of these services can be performed by trained technicians at Yorba Linda Auto Service and will benefit the life of your vehicle and performance in the mpg department.
At Yorba Linda Auto Service, we have top-of-the-line cleaning systems for your car. Utilizing BG® 3-part specialized cleaning system process, we can clean your entire fuel system. This will improve your fuel economy and save you money in the long run. We recommend this service every 30,000 miles but feel free to reach out to our professional staff to see if this service is exemplary for you!
Removing Unnecessary Weight
One tip that has less to do with your vehicle but more to do with you is your ability to remove unnecessary weight from your car. The heavier your car is, the more work your engine has to go through to move your car forward. With this said, make sure to keep an eye on your trunk for unnecessary items you can leave at home.
