Regular Maintenance Matters for Fuel Efficiency

There are some truly basic, and affordable, ways that you can help manage your vehicle’s fuel efficiency, ensuring you get the best gas mileage for your vehicle.

  1. Regular Car Inspections. Your vehicle’s manual, or this ‘ultimate car maintenance checklist’, is great for a quick referral for what all needs to be done to your vehicle, and when. Keeping up with regular maintenance will help ensure your vehicle is running as it should, while maximizing your fuel efficiency.
  2. Paying Attention to Your Dash Warning Indicators. Because vehicles are now heavily computerized, understanding dash indicators could mean the difference between a maintenance ‘quick fix’, and a complete repair if left unchecked.

The most common indicator lights include:

  • Oil warning
  • Low tire(s)
  • Coolant
  • Service engine and Check engine light …the difference being that your service engine light is an indicator that you need to schedule your maintenance. Whereas your check engine light indicates a concern within the motor, which one of our technicians can help you solve at our auto service centre in Kelowna.
