Yukon FAQ – How to Fix Poor Fuel Efficiency

Today, our ASE-certified technicians answer a regular question we hear regarding the fuel system.

Question: My car seems to use more gas now than it did a couple months ago. Is there anything I can do to fix it?

Answer: Schedule a fuel system cleaning

We’re here to help your car become as efficient as possible! Fortunately, all your vehicle may need is a good fuel system cleaning at our auto repair shop in Yukon, OK.

Driving through the back roads, or down I-35 construction zones, dirt and particles become airborne and come into contact with our vehicles. Once inside your car, they can be very damaging. Fortunately, the essential automotive systems all have filters. The fuel system has filters around the fuel tank in order to keep contaminants out.

These filters should be routinely replaced in order to stay effective. When dirt and debris get into the system, they dirty the fuel, clog the injectors and even clog the air intake. This is how cars become less efficient. So, be sure to get those filters replaced!

A complete fuel system cleaning should be performed on your vehicle every 15,000 miles, or whenever the manufacturer dictates. You can find this information in your owner’s manual.

The professionals at Christian Brothers Automotive Yukon thoroughly check the fuel injectors and the air intake to make sure there are no obstructions and everything is clean. This could have a huge impact on your vehicle’s performance and fuel efficiency.
