To Save Gas Around Charleston: Keep up with Your Scheduled Service

Posted October 10, 2017 9:56 AM


 

One topic that hits the news in WV on a regular basis is the price of gas. The answer for some WV drivers is to buy a vehicle that gets better fuel economy. For those of us in Charleston 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 Steve & Stacy's Servicenter is one of the best ways people in Charleston can keep their vehicle running efficiently. That means better fuel economy. 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 for WV drivers.

Dirty engine air filters are another efficiency pirate. They rob your 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 vehicle as you drive around Charleston. If your owner's manual recommends a fuel system cleaning, come into Steve & Stacy's Servicenter and ask us to get it done for you.

A simple, but very effective way for drivers to save gas is to keep their tires properly inflated. Low tires can cost you up to a mile per gallon/.425 kilometers per liter. Check your tire pressure when you gas up – or at least once a month.
