While gas prices have been more consistent, and in some areas they have even gone down, it is still painful to fill your gas tank. As we drive more and more transporting kids, running errands, holiday shopping and working, we can almost watch the gas gauge go down. And, if you like to drive to a winter get-away on the weekends, gas mileage is very important.

You can improve gas mileage. Many car owners neglect some regular car maintenance.  If it has been awhile since you have had a tune up on your car, schedule one! Be sure to keep up on your car’s regular maintenance. Regularly maintained cars get the best gas mileage. You will be pleasantly surprised.

Reliable Transmission Service recommends scheduled maintenance regularly and would like to see your car get a tune up at 30,000, 60,000 and 90,000 mile intervals. Why? A tune up means the spark plugs, the timing, the gas and airflow through the carburetor and the fuel injectors are all getting checked out.

Bad spark plug wires can cause and increase in gas usage. Replacing a faulty oxygen sensor could increase gas mileage up to 40%. Replacing a dirty air filter can increase gas mileage up to 10%. At Reliable Transmission Service we can help you save money at the pump; contact us.
