Since the state of Kansas doesn’t require emissions testing, it’s a good idea to take the initiative and save on gas while helping the environment at the same time! The ASE-certified technicians at Christian Brothers Automotive Olathe have 5 tips that you can easily implement today.
Take care of your tires
Most drivers (especially new drivers) don’t understand the importance of good tires. These brave pieces of rubber are what separate your car from the road. Keeping them properly inflated and changing them whenever the tread goes is very important to achieving your maximum gas mileage. Well-maintained tires have less contact with the ground and create less friction. With good tires, you’ll fly down the road!
Brave your commute with a friend
Yes, we’ve heard it many times before, but carpooling is simply one of the most effective ways to cut down on gas and harmful exhaust. It may not always be convenient, but think of all the money you’ll save! It may be worth a little inconvenience. Let’s face it; your daily commute isn’t fun. It would be more bearable with a friend of coworker in the passenger seat.
Follow the speed limit
Flooring it once the light turns green is a good way to waste gas. So is driving 10 or more miles over the speed limit. In suburban areas, traffic lights more or less how quickly you get from point A to point B. Not to mention, it’s also safer to drive the limit. So let off the pedal, and save some gas!
Fuel Induction Service
Over time, you might notice that your car isn’t getting the gas mileage it used to. It’s normal for this to happen as a car ages. However, part of this loss in fuel efficiency is because fuel and air deposits that build up in the engine. We can remove those deposits with our fuel induction service so your engine doesn’t have to work as hard.
Get the oil changed and check the air filters
Some people don’t have any work done on their cars until they hear some horrible noise one day. That’s not a good way to protect your investment and keep your car running efficiently. Changing your oil, cleaning the air filters and other regular maintenance (as laid out by your owner’s manual) can make a huge difference in how your car runs and how much gas it takes to get you going.
