Did you know that automotive repairs can help save money at the pump? Petrol isn’t cheap as it used to be, and it’s not showing any sign of falling in price, so save as much as you can. You can get more for your dollar at the pump with a full vehicle service making sure your car is performing to its full potential.

Bringing your vehicle in for regular automotive repairs will allow us to check out your basic components. With these parts and systems of your car working properly, you can save money on fuel consumption.

By bringing your car in for an automotive repairs service, we can check:

The engine.

Engine performance is crucial in fuel consumption, and by keeping yours properly tuned, you can improve distance per tank by an average of four percent.

The tyre pressure.

Under inflated tyres can drastically reduce mileage, and properly inflated tyres can make an improvement of over three percent.

The oil.

An old oil filter can have a huge effect on your vehicle’s mileage, and even the type of oil you put in your engine can improve fuel economy by up to two percent.

The air filters.

Replacing clogged air filters on older vehicles can improve fuel economy and will improve performance and acceleration on all vehicles.

The petrol cap.

Does your check engine light keep coming on but the car seems fine? Then it might be a loose or damaged petrol cap. This allows the petrol in your tank to vaporise, reducing the time between filling up.

The electronics.

Regular automotive repairs also check your electronics. Electronic components such as Power Steering can have an effect on your car’s mileage.

All these small things in your car can add up to a big difference to your bank balance. If you haven’t booked in for automotive repairs for a while, there’s probably a few things that you need looked at. We can help keep you safe on the road, while at the same time saving you money in fuel.
