Auto Authority LLC. Service to Improve Fuel EconomyMay 30th, 2018
Let’s review some things that Oshkosh drivers 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 Oshkosh drivers. 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 Oshkosh drivers 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 car maker’s recommended service intervals in the owner’s manual or ask your Auto Authority LLC. service advisor for the schedule.
Don’t forget your tires. Under inflated tires waste gas. And if your wheels are out of alignment you won’t get the gas mileage you need.
Be sure to get a new gas cap if yours leaks or is worn.
None of these things are very complicated or expensive for Oshkosh drivers to stay on top of. When you maintain your car properly, you save gas today and prevent pricey repairs tomorrow.
