Paul-Richard GM Center

Whether you're in the market for a new car or need to find a way to put more mileage on your current vehicle, there are ways to improve and maintain your fuel efficiency. While gas prices rise, you won't have to worry about conserving gas with the following tips. Consider the following options and let Paul-Richard GM Center give you a hand with your fuel economy today!

Change Your Oil

Regular oil changes are important for overall vehicle health. When you want to improve fuel efficiency, we recommend using the manufacturer's oil in your car. You can improve fuel efficiency by 1 to 2 percent and protect your internal engine components with regular oil changes at Paul-Richard GM Center!

Maintain Your Tires

Your four tires make constant contact with the road, helping you get to your next destination when you climb into the driver's seat. Properly maintained tires, like correct inflation, can have a big impact on your vehicle's fuel consumption. You may not know this, but for every 1 pound per square inch decrease in air pressure, your fuel economy decreases by 0.2-percent. Properly inflated tires can improve your gas mileage by up to 3 percent!

Check Your Air Flow

A healthy engine requires consistent airflow to work properly. When the air filter becomes dirty or clogged, your engine doesn't get the airflow it needs, leading to a decrease in performance and efficiency. While replacing the air filter is a smaller repair, you can save yourself the stress and expensive repairs with regular replacements. Our service team can check your air filter today!

Schedule a

New vehicles must pass an emissions test before hitting the road. However, years and miles can add up quickly. If you want to ensure your engine is correctly using fuel, a good way is to get a proper tune-up. An internal combustion engine needs fuel to perform, whether it uses spark plugs or ignition coils. Our Paul-Richard GM Center service experts can inspect your engine's parts and help your vehicle achieve peak performance level.

Ease Off the Accelerator

When the light turns green, you may want to hit the gas pedal and get going – don't do this! When you put the pedal to the floor, you open your throttle to burn more fuel than is necessary. While getting to your next destination is important, we encourage you to try a gentler touch to preserve fuel. Small things like this can add up to more savings down the road.
