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."

    What a great experience! Knowledgeable and professional! The turbo went up on my Acura RDX. The dealer pronounced my car DOA. They gave me an inflated estimate and insisted I was better off getting a new car. A close friend of mine recommended that I take my car to Mickey. I did just that and Mickey and his top notch team of Car Docs went to work on the patient. They were able to resuscitate her and save her life for a fraction of what the dealer wanted. Mickey kept me informed throughout the process. Even sending me video of the surgery! The turnaround was quick and I was back on the road in no time. Seriously, whether it's an oil change, or a major repair, Mickey and his team are equipped to do the job. You can expect an honest diagnosis, fair price, and outstanding workmanship. Mickey stands behind his work. I highly recommend Mickey's Car E.R. I was completely satisfied with my experience.

    Great job all around, was a pleasure to do business with James and Mickey. Very professional and a clean waiting room. We felt very comfortable with our young 1 1/2 year old there inside waiting on an inspection. Thanks Mickeys!

    It is so hard to find a mechanic you can trust these days! I highly recommend Mickeys Car repair shop. I was treated with respect, quoted a fair price on getting my tire repaired and it was fixed really fast. Mickey owns the place and you can tell he's a man of integrity who runs a business committed to providing excellent service.
