DFW-Car-Tips-Save-Money-Go-Green-At-The-Gas-PumpSummer is in full swing, and gas prices are soaring. So, if you like the sound of savings, stay tuned! Because even though we know you’re always going a mile a minute, we think you’ll have a few to spare when it comes to these eco-friendly, fuel-saving tips.

Did you know…

On average, about one in every four cars has clogged or dirty air filters, which can lower your fuel efficiency by up to 10%? When your air filters become clogged or dirty, dust, dirt and debris are sent into your engine, lowing your fuel efficiency.

When you bring your car into City Garage, our experts will check your air filters and make sure your engine is getting the fresh, clean air it needs. And to ensure the best air-to-fuel ratio for your engine, our experts recommend having your fuel injector, fuel pump and fuel filter inspected as well.

Did you know…

Nearly 17% of cars have either broken or missing gas caps, which hurts both the environment as well as your MPG?

When you bring your car into City Garage, our experts will check your gas cap, and replace it if it’s bad.

Did you know…

Poor alignment shortens the life of your tires and sends your engine into overdrive, which, in turn, decreases your gas mileage by up to 10%? When your wheels get knocked out of alignment by jumping a curb or hitting an uneven patch or pothole in the road, your car won’t handle as well, especially when it comes to steering and high-speed consistency.

When you bring your car into City Garage, our experts will adjust your alignment and rotate your tires as well as check your front and rear brakes for wear. We recommend having your tires rotated and balanced every 10,000 miles.

Did you know…

Over 25% of motorists are driving on deflated tires, and, on average, a tire underinflated by 7.5 pounds leads to a loss in fuel efficiency of 2.8% or more? Flabby, underinflated tires have a higher “rolling resistance,” the measure of ease with which your tires roll down the road, and, therefore waste more fuel than when properly inflated. In addition to lowering your fuel efficiency, driving with over or underinflated tires is not only unsafe, but shortens the life of your tires as well.

When you bring your car into City Garage, our experts will check that your tires are properly inflated to their recommended pressure level.

Did you know…

Timely tune-ups not only help keep your engine running optimally, but also can improve your gas mileage by up to 4%? Regularly serviced and maintained vehicles run better and last longer, plain and simple. And ultimately, tune-ups will save you more money than just at your next fill-up.

When you bring your car into City Garage, our experts will tune your engine and keep your car running smoothly. We recommend tuning your engine every 12 months or 12,000 miles, but make sure to check your owner’s manual for your car’s specified intervals.

Hopefully, some of these “green” gas tips will help you start seeing some more “green” in your wallet soon.

And if you’ve starting seeing your MPG gradually going down, be sure to stop in or schedule an appointment online with your neighborhood City Garage today. Our experts are here to help get you and your car back on the road again – the environmentally friendly, “green” way.
