Everyone knows about gas mileage with their own vehicles, however you can take it a step further with the way you treat your vehicle over its lifetime. The extra money you can save with the right strategies can be used for vehicle repair or your own personal gain. At #FormulaHondaOntario, our technicians always promote a regular maintenance schedule for your Honda vehicle.

Rich White, the executive director of Car Care Council states, “Proactive vehicle maintenance is a motorist’s best money saving tip. 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.” With this information, you should make it a priority to make vehicle care a top priority in your life.”

Five Ways To Increase Gas Mileage

  1. Checking Tire Pressure: Keeping your Honda’s tires properly inflated improves its gas mileage by up to 3.3 percent.
  2. Using the Right Motor Oil: Utilizing the correct grade of motor oil recommended by Honda can improve gas mileage by 1 to 2 percent.
  3. Replacing Clogged Air Filters: Air filters become dirty and clogged over time, reducing efficiency in fuel economy. Replacing them improves fuel economy, performance and acceleration.
  4. Checking Engine Performance: Check if your engine is running efficiently by bringing your Honda in for a checkup at our dealership to perform a routine maintenance check. If there are fixes to be made, you can improve gas mileage by up to 4 percent.
  5. Fixing It: Fixing big maintenance issues is extremely important, such as a faulty oxygen sensor. If there are major issues, you can improve gas mileage by up to 40 percent!
