Maintenance for Fuel Efficiency

Improve Fuel Efficiency with Regular Maintenance at Clark Chevrolet

With gas prices on the rise, many drivers have fuel efficiency on their minds. How can you get the most out of every mile? One of the best ways to ensure that your vehicle gets more out of every mile is to treat it to routine maintenance, particularly the services that focus most on helping your car perform more efficiently. Which services should you be paying the most attention to if you're looking to improve fuel economy? Here's a quick look at some of the top services that can help you get more from every drop of fuel.

Oil Change

Regular oil changes help to improve your car's overall health, but they're especially important when it comes to fuel efficiency. Oil keeps your engine lubricated, which allows it to work smoothly and efficiently without creating excess friction. Oil eventually breaks down and needs to be replaced in order to keep things running properly under the hood, so keeping up with oil changes is a critical part of maintaining efficiency.

Engine Air Filter Replacement

Another key element to your engine's success is air. Your engine air filter helps to ensure that the air that flows to your engine is clean. If your engine air filter is dirty, airflow to your engine weakens, which makes it more difficult for your engine to do its job. Checking your engine air filter regularly and changing it when it gets dirty or clogged can help you avoid a lot of engine problems.

Tire Check

Your tires need adequate tread and proper air pressure to help your vehicle perform at its best. We recommend checking your tires at least once a month to make sure they're properly inflated and in good shape. We can also inspect your tires and perform services like tire rotations and wheel alignments to keep them in good condition.

Engine Tune-Up

Our team can inspect your engine and make sure that all its various components are in great shape. If it needs any new parts, such as ignition coils or spark plugs, we can make repairs to help your engine stay at the top of its game.

Go Easy on the Accelerator

This isn't a service, but it's a good tip! Ease into accelerating instead of putting the pedal to the metal when you jump out of a standstill. Easing up on the accelerator can help you save fuel.

Schedule service today, and our team will be happy to help you keep your car running as efficiently as possible!
