One topic that hits the news in Boulder on a regular basis is the price of gas. The answer for some CO auto owners is to buy a vehicle that gets better fuel efficiency. For those of us who don’t want to add a car payment to our monthly expenses, we need to improve our fuel economy any way we can.
Following recommended service intervals by coming into John’s Auto Care is one of the best ways Boulder car owners can keep their truck running efficiently. That means better gas mileage. When you give it some thought, it only makes sense. Dirty oil or transmission fluid can’t lubricate or clean. That means more drag which reduces fuel economy.
Keeping up with scheduled oil changes and transmission services will save gas.
Dirty engine air filters are another efficiency pirate. They rob your family car engine of enough air to effectively burn the fuel, so you need more gas to get the job done. Replacing a dirty air filter can pay for itself in fuel savings before the next oil change.
You can imagine what dirty fuel injectors can do to your family car as you drive around Boulder. If your SUV owner’s manual recommends a fuel system cleaning, come into John’s Auto Care and ask us to get it done for you.
A simple, but very effective way for auto owners to save gas is to keep their tires properly inflated. Low tires can cost you up to a mile per gallon. Check your tire pressure when you gas up – or at least once a month.
