You can save gas by watching how you drive and by making sure your car is in top shape. The auto care and repair specialists at Tracy’s Automotive on Maple Street and its two other service centers can help you with that!
The kids are nagging you for a trip to Exploration Place and, honestly, you’d like to go too so you could see the movie about Australia. But, with gas prices skyrocketing, you’re hesitant to make any unnecessary trips. Deciding to drive fewer miles will certainly help save on gas. But that’s not the only way to save on gas – watching how you drive and making sure your car is correctly tuned and running at peak performance will also help, according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
The EPA offers these tips to improve your driving efficiency: drive sensibly, not aggressively; stay within the speed limit; don’t haul items on the roof; remove excess weight; don’t idle; and use cruise control if you have it.
The EPA offers these tips for keeping your car in shape: Make sure your engine is properly tuned and repairs; keep your tires properly inflated; and use the recommended grade of oil. If your air filter is clogged, changing it will improve your car’s performance but has no effect on miles per gallon.
The EPA says, “Fixing a car that is noticeably out of tune or has failed an emissions test can improve its gas mileage by an average of 4 percent, though results vary based on the kind of repair and how well it is done. Fixing a serious maintenance problem, such as a faulty oxygen sensor, can improve your mileage by as much as 40 percent.”
