The holiday season is almost upon us. Most people drive more during the holidays, whether it is from gift shopping, running extra errands, or heading to holiday parties. With gas prices as high as they, do all that you can do to keep your car in shape and increase gas mileage, get a tune-up. But a car tune-up also helps get your car ready for winter. Now is the time to make the appointment.

Cars are expensive, in both maintenance and gas. There is no way around paying for gas. But there are ways to improve gas mileage and you can prevent more costly car repair bills with regular car maintenance and changing the oil.

Don’t neglect regular car maintenance.  Get a tune up. A tune up will not only increase your gas mileage, in fact, after your car tune-up, you may see the best gas mileage that you have seen in some time, if not ever.

Reliable Transmission Service recommends scheduled maintenance every 30,000 miles. Because when you get a tune up the mechanic is checking your spark plugs, timing, and adjusting the gas and airflow through the carburetor or fuel injectors.

For example, your car could misfire which increases gas use all because of poor spark plug wires. If your car has a bad oxygen sensor, replacing this could actually increase your gas mileage by 40%. That is almost a half of a tank of gas! Replacing a dirty air filter can increase gas mileage up to 10%.

If you're looking for better gas mileage or you want to extend the life of your car, get a tune up. Contact Reliable Transmission Service.
