Check Your Spark Plugs Regularly

  • To keep your engine running at its peak performance, be sure to check your spark plugs regularly. A good time for this is during an oil change. 

  • A misfiring spark plug can reduce your fuel efficiency by as much as 30%! 

  • Keeping your engine tuned will help you get the best gas mileage and will also decrease the amount of pollution it creates!

  • Be sure to keep up on car care with oil changes and tune-ups as recommended in the manual to reduce the possibility of more expensive repairs later on.

It is Important to Inspect Your Tires Regularly

  • Check that your tires are properly inflated and aligned to get you the best miles per gallon and keep your car running smooth.

  • Tires that are not properly inflated will force your engine to work even harder, running up your cost of gas and wearing out your engine more quickly.

  • If your tires are out of alignment your vehicle will be working harder and your tires will wear much quicker, putting you in a potentially unsafe driving situation.

Avoid Aggressive Driving to Increase Your Vehicle's Longevity

  • When driving, avoid speeding and sudden accelerations.

  • Erratic accelerations are huge gas guzzling habits that will also put significant wear-and-tear on your engine, transmission, steering and the suspension system.

  • Developing better driving habits will also allow your brakes to last longer as well.

Remove Excess Items From Your Vehicle for Better Gas Mileage

  • Try to remove any unnecessary items from your vehicle.

  • The less extra weight your vehicle is towing around, the better gas mileage you will receive.

  • Keep your vehicle as aerodynamic as possible by removing any roof-top carriers when not in use.

Regular car care and better driving habits will get you the best gas mileage possible for your vehicle and will keep your car running smooth longer.
