The Pro Tech Tire & Auto Guide to Saving Fuel: Get Rid of Dirty Oil

Posted March 14, 2021 8:35 AM

A lot of us drivers are asking ourselves the same question lately: how can we save on fuel? East Greenbush area residents are all cutting back, if not in fuel consumption, then in other areas of our lives.

Preventive Maintenance

Preventive maintenance is an important way people in East Greenbush can conserve fuel by improving fuel economy. And one of the easiest and most effective ways to do that is to keep the oil in our vehicle adequate and clean.

Oil lubricates your vehicle engine and keeps it running smoothly. If you're running low, there is increased friction in your engine. Friction creates drag, which means it takes more fuel to keep the vehicle motor running. This all translates to lower fuel economy.

Check your oil to make sure the engine is getting all it needs. Your owner's manual and service advisor at Pro Tech Tire & Auto will tell you the proper weight and type of oil for your vehicle.

Responsible Car Care

Dirty oil grits up your engine, which also increases friction. So even if there's enough oil, you're still getting that extra drag that reduces your fuel economy. That's why your owner's manual recommends getting your oil changed regularly. It's good auto advice.

While you're checking your oil, you should take a quick look at your transmission fluid as well. Your transmission also needs clean, adequate fluid to work efficiently. An inefficient transmission also translates into lower fuel economy.

Your service advisor at Pro Tech Tire & Auto will be able to check your oil and other fluids, top you off or change your oil if necessary.
Your owner's manual will have recommendations on how often you should check your oil and transmission fluid. But you can also consult with the pros at Pro Tech Tire & Auto in East Greenbush. The types of roads you drive on in NY, the climate where you live and the air quality in your area can all affect how often you should change your oil.

And don't forget that this will improve our environment here in East Greenbush as well. Improved efficiency translates to fewer emissions. Changing your oil as scheduled doesn't just help your vehicle (and your pocketbook), it helps keep the air clean as well.

Called late in afternoon and explained to owner my car needed to be aligned...we discussed what was going on when driving. Asked could I bring car in tomorrow morning beteeen 8 and 9 and leave for them to work on. By 4pm was driving home, car handling fine. Very thorough in explanation of what to expect when dropped off and what was done when picked it up. I was treated as a knowledgeable adult not just a wonan as most garaged do. Very pleased!
