Jones Tire Country Service to Improve Fuel Economy

Let's review some things that residents can do to improve fuel economy. Bottom line – the better you maintain your vehicle, the less fuel you will use. It all adds up in a big way. For example, replacing your dirty engine air filter will pay for itself in fuel savings before your next oil change - and will keep saving you money after that.

A clean, well-maintained fuel system really pays big dividends for the budget conscious resident. A clogged fuel filter wastes gas. So does a dirty fuel system, grimy fuel injectors, and plugged up PCV valves. A fuel system service decreases the gas you use, and increases the power – so you can't go wrong with that.

Some of us residents ignore our check engine light. But fixing the problem that caused the light to come on will usually save some fuel as well. It may be a bad oxygen sensor that can really rob you.

And, it may be time for a tune-up. Tune-ups should improve your fuel economy. Don't overlook the routine maintenance items, like scheduled oil changes, transmission and cooling system service. Dirty or low fluids actually use more fuel. Just look at your recommended service intervals in the owner's manual, or ask your friendly and knowledgeable Jones Tire Country service advisor for the schedule.

Don't forget your tires. Underinflated tires waste gas. And if your wheels are out of alignment you won't get the gas mileage you need.

Be sure to get a new gas cap if your cap leaks or is worn.

None of these things are very complicated or expensive for residents to stay on top of. When you maintain your car properly, you save gas today and prevent repairs tomorrow.

Give us a call.
