Save Gas this Summer in Texas With These Tips

Pack Your Car Properly for Your TripWith summer in full bloom, most of us are getting outdoors, putting down the windows, and going for car rides and vacations whenever possible. Driving down the road and feeling the wind in your hair is one of life’s greatest pleasures. However, it can be costly. Here in Texas, gas prices remain relatively stable, though they’re liable to change at any moment. Here are a few tips to save yourself money on gas this summer.

Schedule a Tune-Up

Perhaps the most significant tip we can offer you is to schedule a tune-up this summer. If you want to lower the fuel consumption of your luxury car, have it serviced. At Krause’s Automotive, we can do a lot. Cleaning the battery cables, replacing the oil filter, and ensuring the tires are properly inflated and in good condition can all help you save money on gas.

Furthermore, replacing your oil with a clean synthetic, replacing the O2 sensor, and inspecting both the suspension and chassis will help reduce fuel consumption in any model car or truck. In some cases, a single maintenance appointment can boost your fuel efficiency by as much as 30 percent!

Clean Your Vehicle

It might sound like a gimmick, but cleaning your vehicle—both inside and out—can directly help with your fuel costs. Finding loose change can help you pay for gas (it adds up!), and a clean interior can help reduce the weight of your vehicle.

Also be sure to clean the exterior and get rid of the dirt and grime buildup, which is surely weighing down your car and ruining the aerodynamics.

Schedule a luxury car tune-up with Krause’s Automotive this summer and enjoy the sunshine a little more knowing you’ll save money. Give us a call at 972-221-8743!
