Advantages of Regular Vehicle Maintenance

Regular Vehicle Servicing/ Maintenance Is Important!!!

Keep your vehicle well-maintained with regular servicing to keep it operating at peak efficiency. An inefficient engine with fouled spark plugs, for example, won't make optimum use of fuel. Be sure the air filter and the fuel filter are clean. Put in new ones if they're not. A new oxygen sensor alone can improve gas mileage by as much as 15 percent.

Don't forget little things like the air in your tires. Having tires inflated to the automaker's maximum recommended pressure can improve gas mileage by as much as 6 percent, while periodic wheel alignments can help improve fuel economy up to 10 percent, according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

Clean out that trunk, cargo area or pickup bed. Take out unneeded items that only add weight to your vehicle. Extra weight decreases gas mileage. Every 200 pounds of unnecessary weight shaves one mile per gallon off your fuel mileage.
