Easy Steps to Better Gas Mileage




The Car Care Council encourages motorists to be car care aware and perform these five simple steps to improve fuel economy and save money.




  1. Check Tire Pressure: Keep tires properly inflated and improve gas mileage by up to 3.3 percent.

  2. Use the Right Motor Oil: Improve gas mileage by 1 to 2 percent by using the grade of motor oil recommended by the manufacturer.
  3. Replace Clogged Air Filters: Replacing clogged air filters on older vehicles can improve fuel economy and will improve performance and acceleration on all vehicles.

  4. Check Engine Performance: Keep your engine running efficiently and improve gas mileage by an average of 4 percent.

  5. Fix It: Addressing a serious maintenance problem, like a faulty oxygen sensor, can improve mileage by as much as 40 percent, according to The US Department of Energy.


"Proactive vehicle maintenance is a motorist's best money saving tip," said Rich White, executive director, Car Care Council. "Routine auto care not only helps save on fuel costs, but it helps identify small issues so they can be serviced before they become bigger and more costly to repair."

My truck suffered a seal failure on my way to Pendleton and I was in town for only one weekday so I had to get it fixed in one day. I won the no wait lottery and Zeiglers was able to repair two seals on my truck on a Friday with no appointment. I am very pleased with the service I received and the cost was reasonable.

Absolutely 5 stars. I have been going to these guys for close to 15 years with 5 different vehicles, and have yet to have a misdiagnosis or be overcharged, and Kris is just a good, solid human being. I was nervous about buying a car brand where the nearest dealer was over an hour away, but I have learned to be confident in Ziegler's abilities to handle what I throw at them.

Chris worked overtime on my transmission to get it up to speed after putting in a rebuilt transmission. I appreciate the honesty and willingness to go the extra mile to get it taken care of. I would not hesitate to take my car there again.
