Specific vehicle maintenance tasks are essential for fuel economy to ensure maximum efficiency. Regular oil changes, tire rotations, and other tune-ups can help your car run more efficiently and cost less at the pump. It is also essential to keep up with scheduled maintenance recommended by your vehicle manufacturer.

Oil changes should be completed every 3,000 miles or as the manufacturer recommends. When oil becomes thick and sludgy, it does not flow easily through the engine and has to work harder than necessary to provide lubrication. This extra effort leads to higher fuel consumption rates since your engine will use more energy to do its job because of increased friction from dirty oil.

Tire pressure plays a vital role in fuel economy as well. Low tire pressure can lead to reduced efficiency due to increased friction when the tires hit the roads of Greensboro, NC, resulting in more energy being used for travel and, therefore, higher fuel consumption. It is essential to check your tire pressure regularly and fill up all four tires with air if needed.
