Car Care Tips

Basic Tips

There's a lot you can do to maximize the life of your car:

  1. Keep your tires inflated at the correct pressure. Under inflation causes tire wear and wastes fuel.
  2. Don't carry unneeded weight in your vehicle. Excess weight puts a heavier load on the engine, causing greater fuel consumption.
  3. Accelerate slowly and smoothly. Avoid jackrabbit starts. Get into a higher gear as quickly as possible.
  4. Avoid long engine idling. If you have to wait for a long period of time, it is better to turn off the engine and start again later.
  5. Avoid engine lag or over-revving. Use a gear position suitable for the type of road you're traveling.
  6. Avoid stop-and-go driving. Stop-and-go driving wastes fuel.
  7. Don't rest your foot on the clutch or brake pedal. This causes needless wear, overheating and poor fuel economy.
  8. Keep all wheels in proper alignment. Improper alignment not only causes faster tire wear but also puts an extra load on the engine.
  9. Keep your vehicle tuned up and in top shape.
  10. Getting better mileage is actually simple. Just take it easy while driving. It will also make your vehicle last longer.
  11. Take to the shade rather than keep the air conditioner running.
  12. It's a good idea to do a safety check before starting out on a trip. A visit to your mechanic can help ensure safe and pleasant driving.


Fuel Saving Tips

What's good for the environment is good for your wallet as well.

  1. After starting the engine, it is best to drive off immediately. Idling causes pollution and excessive fuel consumption.
  2. Depress the accelerator gently to drive away and change to a higher gear in time.
  3. Do not approach traffic lights at full speed. If it is clear that you will have to stop, begin slowing down well in advance.
  4. Driving at high speed (over 50 mph and especially over 60 mph) uses more fuel and causes more pollution.
  5. Avoid drag. Where possible keep all windows closed and ensure that the doors, hood, and trunk are securely fastened.
  6. Maintain a sufficient distance between your car and the vehicle ahead. This way there is less need to react suddenly, and you can brake and accelerate more smoothly.
  7. On curves, reduce speed in time and accelerate smoothly when you are halfway through a turn. Late, heavy braking before a curve followed by rapid acceleration leads to excessive fuel consumption.
  8. If you watch the road ahead and anticipate any likely problems, your driving style will become smoother and better controlled.
  9. Tires in good condition and at the right pressure improve both safety and fuel consumption. Be sure to check your tires regularly.
  10. Ensure your car is properly and regularly maintained. Poor engine lubrication, wheel alignment and poorly adjusted brakes can increase fuel consumption.
