Gas Saving Auto Repair Tips

As your auto repair shop in Peoria, we thought you might like to save a bit of cash this holiday season.  And what costs a lot, even with recent price drops?  Why gasoline of course.

First off, as we covered in a previous article, never let your low fuel light come on.  You can potentially cause a lot of damage to your fuel pump.  But back to saving gas. With that in mind, here are some more gas saving tips from ASE.COM:

“Observe speed limits. Speeding decreases your miles per gallon.

Drive gently. Sudden accelerations guzzle gas. Anticipate traffic patterns ahead and adjust your speed gradually.

Use windows and air conditioning wisely. Your mileage should improve if you keep the windows closed at highway speeds, since air drag is reduced. This is true even with the air conditioning on-assuming that the system is in good working order. But turn the air conditioning off in stop-and-go traffic to save fuel.

Keep your engine “tuned up.” A well-maintained engine operates at peak efficiency, maximizing gas mileage. Follow the service schedules listed in the owner’s manual. Replace filters and fluids as recommended; have engine performance problems (rough idling, poor acceleration, etc.) corrected at a repair facility. Given today’s high-tech engines, it’s wise to have this type of work done by auto technicians who are ASE certified in engine performance.

These conservation tips will not only save gasoline, they’ll help extend the life of your vehicle. Win-win, indeed.” [READ SOURCE]

This holiday season, we also want to advise you to use caution.   People get distracted and are often in a hurry.  As a result, there are a lot of traffic accidents on the road this time of year. Stay safe for yourself and for your loved ones.  On the issue of safety, there is a repair that you should consider doing at certain mile marks

Brake Repair and Your Car

You want to make sure you get your brakes looked at every 5,000 miles or so.  You do not want to wear your brakes down to the point that they are grinding, because what could have been a $99 brake job may end up costing you  several hundred dollars in repair costs, and down time for your car.

So remember stay safe and be smart.  Get your car serviced per your owner’s manual.  And from your auto repair shop in Peoria, have a save and happy holiday season.
