Chad Fadley of Fadley Auto Masters in York County gives advice on how to get the optimum fuel efficiency from your vehicle.
One of the simple things you can do is check the air in your tires. If your tires don’t have the proper air pressure, it creates more roll and resistance, using more gas.
He also recommends wheel alignment to reduce unnecessary resistance.
Reduce extra weight like unused golf clubs and other items you might be carrying in your trunk.
Make sure your air filter is clean. A clogged air filter will cause your car to work harder. Make sure your spark plugs are in good shape. Fadley also recommends checking your fuel filter. If you’re unsure whether they need replacing, check with a mechanic.
