Simple Ways to Prevent Fuel Waste while Driving


Simple Ways to Prevent Fuel Waste while DrivingWith gas prices peaking, it's particularly important to make sure you're not letting fuel go to waste while you drive. At L&S MotorWerks, our local mechanics can complete auto maintenance measures for your European car that will help you get the best gas mileage possible. There are also some easy ways that you can help to prevent fuel waste as you go about your daily driving routine.

Helpful Tips for Improving Fuel-Efficiency

One simple measure to prevent fuel waste is to make sure that your tires are correctly inflated. You'll want to check your particular inflation guidelines and then inflate as specified. If your tires are underinflated, then your engine will have to exert more power to get the soft rubber to roll down the road. As a result, gas mileage could worsen. Another simple task is to make sure you aren't carrying unneeded weight. For every extra 100 pounds in your car, fuel-efficiency can worsen by 1%. Also, you should be sure that your gas cap is always tightly secured. A loose or missing gas cap can allow fuel to evaporate before it is sent to your engine.

When you come to our local Euro auto shop, we can conduct basic auto maintenance that will better enable your vehicle to get optimal fuel-efficiency. Spark plug replacement and oil changes are important tasks that can help your car get better gas mileage. It's also smart to get a new fuel filter about every 25,000 miles so that contaminants don't hurt fuel-economy and engine performance. And air filters should be replaced every 12,000 to 15,000 miles so that the correct amount of air can get to the combustion chamber. Proper airflow will prevent the engine from burning extra fuel to make up for a shortage of air.
