Gas is expensive, so you don’t want your car wasting it due to poor performance. However, there are some simple things you can do to improve your fuel economy. Meanwhile, other things are a waste of time and money. Here are some of the best and worst ways to improve your fuel economy. Then we will discuss how an extended auto warranty can protect your fuel delivery system.
Important Fuel Savers
If you want to pay less at the pump, there are two things you need to do for sure:
- Keep your tires inflated – If your tire pressure is low, you can lose as much as 3% of your fuel economy. Most gas stations give this to you for free, so it’s a cheap fix.
- Change your air filter – A dirty air filter can kill up to 10% of your gas mileage. It only costs about $20 to have the filter swapped out while you get your oil changed. It’s even cheaper if you can do this simple swap out yourself.
Avoid These Money Wasters
There are also a few things that you shouldn’t ever need unless some part of your fuel delivery system is in need of repairs. Some of these include:
- Injection cleaning
- Oil additives
- Gas savers
