Summer Driving Tips

In this episode from our archives, John and Rich discuss the summer driving season, tips on keeping your car at the ready. How to increase fuel mileage and given the spike in gas prices you definitely want to listen in.

Fuel Saving Tip: Dirty oil

If you’re a quart low, there isn’t enough oil to lubricate your engine properly.  The extra friction causes drag that reduces fuel economy.

Same goes for dirty oil.  It doesn’t reduce friction properly.  The result is you get to watch those numbers at the gas pump rolling higher and higher.

The transmission also needs the proper amount of clean fluid to do its work.  When it’s in need of service, the transmission drags your fuel economy down.

So, keep it clean and give yourself a fighting chance.
