Tune Up, Slow Down and Unpack to Squeeze Extra MPG

My Certified Service Better Fuel Economy Fonted Package

Prices at the pump are on the rise. And although today's cars are engineered with more efficient, fuel-saving technologies there are still steps you can take to squeeze more miles out of a gallon. Industry experts say there are ways drivers can improve their own fuel economy by making some very minor changes. To start, a properly tuned engine can increase fuel efficiency by about 4 percent and fixing a serious issue like a faulty oxygen sensor can boost mileage up to 40 percent. You can also save by slowing down. Gas mileage usually decreases rapidly at speeds above 60 mph, making every 5 mph over 60 mph like adding an additional 24 cents per gallon for gas.
