Protect Yourself from 2018 Gas Prices

Protect Yourself from 2018 Gas Prices

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:

Drive Light

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. If you have further questions about how to keep your beloved ride operating at peak efficiency, call 171 Nissan today to speak with one of our experienced staff members.

Ideas for New Year’s Resolution Goals

New Year's Celebration | DeRidder, LA

Achieving your New Year’s resolution is something to be proud of, no matter how time-consuming or difficult it may (or may not) be. There are plenty of goals to choose from, which makes it hard to pick just one. Then again, nothing is stopping you from attempting to achieve multiple goals throughout 2017! Here are some New Year’s resolution goals to challenge yourself with.

  • Lose Weight – One of the most common resolutions people have is to lose weight. Some set specific goals while others decide that any amount of weight loss will do. Fortunately, since there are so many people with the same goal, it’s relatively easy to find a workout buddy to keep your motivated throughout the year.
  • Kick Soda – Soda isn’t good for you, plain and simple. Large amounts of High Fructose Corn Syrup, sugar, chemicals, and other ingredients can do serious harm to your body. Kicking soda to the curb is one way to both detox and lose weight.
  • Learn a Language – Widen your horizons and get ingrained in a new culture by learning a new language. Whether you plan on traveling or not, a new language has a number of additional benefits, including getting to say you’re bilingual. You could even advance in the workplace thanks to your newfound skill!
