Since fuel is necessary in order for your vehicle to run, it makes sense to try and save as much money as you can each time you fill up at the pumps. It is also important to make sure you have enough fuel in the vehicle to make it to your destination. In the winter it is recommended to keep the fuel tank at least half full. This is beneficial for if poor weather happens when you are on the road. It is also recommended to keep the tank at least half full in the spring and summer. This is so you will not have the risk of running out of fuel.
By going to regular maintenance inspections, we can identify issues with the parts of the vehicle. This can help to improve the longevity of the parts and vehicle as well. If there is an issue, we can help to advise you on what the options are to fix it. Also make sure to inspect the tires on a regular basis. By making sure the tires are at the correct air pressure, the fuel efficiency can be improved by as much as three percent. While filling up your vehicle, make sure to inspect the gas cap. If it is missing or damaged, it can allow for gas to vaporize into the air. This can lead to poor fuel efficiency.
Another way to help improve the fuel efficiency of the vehicle is to accelerate slowly, and come to a stop slowly. By accelerating slowly, it can decrease the chance of fuel being wasted. This can also help to avoid unnecessary wear and tear to parts of the vehicle. By slowly coming to a stop, you can help to avoid damage to the brake lines. This can also help to prolong the condition that they are in. If you ever notice an issue with your vehicle, make sure to bring it in so we can inspect it for you.
