2017 was a volatile year for the average price of gas, and experts are predicting much of the same for 2018. All of us here at 171 Nissan want to assure that our friends and family in the greater Lake Charles community are getting the most bang for their buck every time they visit the pump. If you want to make the most of 2018 gas prices, just follow these few easy tips for increasing your vehicle’s fuel efficiency:
Unload everything you’re not using from your vehicle, whether it’s luggage, soccer bags, or fishing gear. Extra weight equals miles lost.
Maintain Proper PSI
If your tires are over- or under-inflated, you might lose a whole lot of miles per gallon. Check your owner’s manual for your car’s proper PSI and remember to check your tire pressure regularly.
Keep a Clean Engine Air Filter
Your engine is forced to work harder when it has a dirty air filter. Make sure you replace your air filter regularly, approximately every other time you get an oil change.
Don’t let 2018 gas prices get the best of you. Be proactive in your regular maintenance and you’ll start seeing the savings, no matter what the numbers say at the gas station.
