To Save Gas Around Sarasota: Keep Up with Your Scheduled Service

One topic that hits the news in Sarasota on a regular basis is the price of gas. The answer for some FL motorists is to buy a vehicle that gets better fuel economy. For those of us who don’t want to add a car payment to our monthly expenses, we need to improve our fuel economy any way we can.

Following recommended service intervals by coming into Dave’s Auto Repair is one of the best ways Sarasota motorists can keep their pickup running efficiently. That means better fuel economy. When you give it some thought, it only makes sense. Dirty oil or transmission fluid can’t lubricate or clean. That means more drag which reduces fuel economy.

Keeping up with scheduled oil changes and transmission services will save gas.

Dirty engine air filters are another efficiency pirate. They rob your pickup engine of enough air to effectively burn the fuel, so you need more gas to get the job done. Replacing a dirty air filter can pay for itself in fuel savings before the next oil change.

You can imagine what dirty fuel injectors can do to your Automobile as you drive around Sarasota. If your pickup owner’s manual recommends a fuel system cleaning, come into Dave’s Auto Repair and ask us to get it done for you.

A simple, but very effective way for motorists to save gas is to keep their tires properly inflated. Low tires can cost you up to a mile per gallon. Check your tire pressure when you gas up – or at least once a month.
