Having a basic understanding of how your car functions can help to make you a better car owner by aiding you in recognizing minor problems before they become major issues. You can also get the most of your car by understanding how to make it work more efficiently.

Keeping your tires properly inflated has plenty of immediate benefits and can also help you to save gas. Cars have to work harder to propel a car down the road when the tires are under-inflated. Consult your owner's manual regarding what grade of motor oil is recommended, as this can extend your gas mileage.

You can also avoid carrying around excess weight in your trunk or by using a rooftop cargo box. Every 100 pounds of weight you carry uses an extra one percent of your fuel. Using your cruise control on a long trip can also save you using extra gas. Stop by prestige Lexus of Middletown if you have any concerns about your vehicle's fuel efficiency.
