Buick Service Tasks for Improving Gas Mileage
With gas prices the way they are, if you have a long commute or have to drive the kids around a lot, you’re probably paying a fortune. The good news is that with the right Buick service, you may be able to cut your costs substantially. There are two tasks in particular that can improve your fuel economy.
You probably know that your car’s oil needs to be changed regularly to ensure that the engine is in optimal condition, but you may not know that oil has a big impact on gas mileage. Clean and fresh oil allows all of the engine’s moving parts to get the proper lubrication.
Old oil gets dirty and thick, which means those moving parts have to work harder. As a result, fuel economy drops, and the longer you wait between oil changes, the lower it will go.
Tire Pressure Checks
Another thing that affects how often you need to stop to get gas is your tire pressure. Underinflated tires hurt your gas mileage, which is why the psi (pounds per square inch) should be checked frequently.
And you don’t want to just rely on your car’s built-in sensor; it will send you an alert only if your psi drops below the 75-percent threshold.
