Easy Steps to Better Gas Mileage

Easy Steps to Better Gas Mileage




The Car Care Council encourages motorists to be car care aware and perform these five simple steps to improve fuel economy and save money.




  1. Check Tire Pressure: Keep tires properly inflated and improve gas mileage by up to 3.3 percent.

  2. Use the Right Motor Oil: Improve gas mileage by 1 to 2 percent by using the grade of motor oil recommended by the manufacturer.
  3. Replace Clogged Air Filters: Replacing clogged air filters on older vehicles can improve fuel economy and will improve performance and acceleration on all vehicles.

  4. Check Engine Performance: Keep your engine running efficiently and improve gas mileage by an average of 4 percent.

  5. Fix It: Addressing a serious maintenance problem, like a faulty oxygen sensor, can improve mileage by as much as 40 percent, according to The US Department of Energy.


"Proactive vehicle maintenance is a motorist's best money saving tip," said Rich White, executive director, Car Care Council. "Routine auto care not only helps save on fuel costs, but it helps identify small issues so they can be serviced before they become bigger and more costly to repair."

This shop is top-tier. The services rendered, over the course of 6 years for my family and I have always been exceptional and thus far without mistake or slack. Always professional and down to earth, and desiring to be helpful and informative. And clear. And, importantly--HONEST! I'm a transplant from NJ and we had a similar great neighborhood auto mechanic business (shoutout Bill's Ineffable Automotive Rehabilitation in Metuchen) but that's neither here nor there. Fletcher Car Care is worth trying out!
