Improve Fuel Economy in West Des MoinesOct 13th, 2015
The US government has a website dedicated to helping West Des Moines drivers use less fuel. It presents the cost savings in a way we can all relate to, no matter what kind of vehicle we drive. Here's an example:
Having your engine properly tuned, can save up to 4%. If you're paying $1.50 for a litre of gas in West Des Moines, you could save six cents a litre.
Replacing a faulty oxygen sensor can improve by up to 40 percent. That's a whopping savings per litre.
Chances are that if your oxygen sensor is kaput, your Check Engine light will come on. Now, any number of things could cause your Check Engine light to come on besides oxygen sensor problems. But if it's on, it's wise to get it checked out as soon as you can. Talk to your friendly and knowledgeable All Pro Servicenter .
Here's an easy one. Inflate your tires to the recommended pressure. That could save West Des Moines three percent on a litre. Even a little drop in pressure will hurt so check your tires every week.
Your vehicle manufacturer has recommended a specific weight of motor oil. The recommendation is based on engine design and will give you the best protection. Using a heavier weight could cost one to two percent in reduced fuel economy, or up to six cents a litre.
Here are some free gas saving tips from All Pro Servicenter in West Des Moines: Don't drive aggressively, drive within the Iowa speed limit and remove excess weight (junk in the trunk) from your vehicle. These can add up to quite a bit per litre.
