Save Money at The Pump at Sierra CAr CAreThe summer heat is fast approaching and so are rising gas prices.

A few simple and inexpensive vehicle maintenance steps can stretch your dollar at the pump and even help protect the environment. With 5 local, full service gas stations in the Reno and Sparks Nevada area, our advisement for gas savings may be worth reading.

What many motorists don’t realize is that fuel consumption is directly related to vehicle maintenance and can impact the amount of gasoline your vehicle uses. Gas prices can climb quickly, but the good news is that you have some control. By properly maintaining your vehicle, you can improve fuel economy while saving money.

Sierra Car Care and MST Tire Center would like to encourage motorists to be car care aware and perform regular vehicle maintenance to improve fuel economy.

  1. Gas Cap
    Damaged, loose or missing gas caps allow gas to vaporize into the air.
  2. Tune-Up
    Keep your vehicle running properly and improve gas mileage by an average of 4%.
  3. Motor Oil
    Improve gas mileage by 1 – 2% by using the grade of motor oil recommended by the manufacturer.
  4. Air Filters
    Replacing clogged air filters on older vehicles can improve fuel economy and will improve performance and acceleration on all vehicles.
  5. Tire Pressure
    Keep tires properly inflated and improve gas mileage by up to 3.3%.
  6. Fix It
    Addressing a serious maintenance problem, like a faulty oxygen sensor, can improve mileage by as much as 40 percent, according to www.fueleconomy.gov.

In addition to vehicle maintenance, modifying driving habits, such as observing the speed limit and avoiding quick stops and starts, can also increase fuel efficiency. Consolidating trips, avoiding excessive idling and removing unnecessary items from the trunk are also easy ways to lower fuel consumption.

Since 1975, Sierra Car Care and MST Tire Center’s have proudly been providing fast, friendly and reliable service along with Quality Guaranteed Auto Repair. If you would like to find out more, please visit SierraCarCare.com for more information.
