Ouch, it’s no fun heading to the gas station today. What can you do to save on gas and help you keep a little more money in your pocket? It’s simple, don’t drive your car. But that is not really a viable option for most of us, so what can you do? Consolidate some of your trips like grocery shopping. Do you really need that one thing, or could you wait and combine it with a trip to the hardware store and to town? Combine a few needs into one trip and it could save you a gallon or two of gas. Most vehicles out there are in need of some sort of maintenance that can improve fuel mileage, like making sure your tires are properly inflated, a new air filter or spark plugs.
One of the most overlooked items is the fuel system. Injectors and the fuel system can develop build-up over time just like us and our arteries. But for our car, we can flush the fuel system with solvents to break up these deposits and restore proper fuel mileage. I have seen fuel mileage increase by over 5 MPG just by flushing the fuel system and the injectors. There are services for intake manifold cleaning which can also develop build up, effecting gas mileage over time. We use BG products because of their proven ability to clean. You can visit their website for more information about the benefits of keeping your vehicles fluids regularly serviced at bgprod.com. Be sure to give us a call to see what services are recommended for your vehicle and optimize your fuel mileage to save next time you fill up your tank.
