West Coast Muffler Auto Repair - Service to Improve Fuel Economy

Posted April 10, 2017 7:45 AM

Let's review some things that Ukiah residents can do to improve fuel economy. Bottom line – the better you maintain your vehicle, the less fuel you will use. It all adds up in a big way. For example, replacing your dirty engine air filter will pay for itself in fuel savings before your next oil change - and will keep saving you money after that.

A clean, well-maintained fuel system really pays big dividends for budget conscious Ukiah residents. A clogged fuel filter wastes gas. So does a dirty fuel system, grimy fuel injectors and plugged up PCV valves. A fuel system service decreases the gas you use and increases the power – so you can't go wrong with that.

Some of us Ukiah residents ignore our Check Engine light. But fixing the problem that caused the light to come on will usually save some fuel as well. It may be a bad oxygen sensor that can really rob your fuel economy .

And, it may be time for a tune-up. Tune-ups should improve your fuel economy. Don't overlook the routine maintenance items, like scheduled oil changes, transmission and cooling system service. Dirty or low fluids actually use more fuel. Just look at your manufacturer's recommended service intervals in the owner's manual, or ask your friendly and knowledgeable West Coast Muffler & Auto Repair service advisor for the schedule.

Don't forget your tires. Underinflated tires waste gas. And if your wheels are out of alignment, your tires wear out faster.

Be sure to get a new gas cap if yours leaks or is worn.

None of these things are very complicated or expensive for Ukiah residents to stay on top of. When you maintain your car properly, you save gas today and prevent repairs tomorrow.

Give us a call.
