Achieve Better Fuel Economy with Preventative Maintenance in Surrey

The cost of fuel is like nothing we have ever seen here in BC. And with it comes the desire for many auto owners to figure out ways to achieve a more fuel efficient vehicle, which CJ Auto can help with through preventative maintenance in Surrey.

Ways to Achieve Better Fuel Economy

There are a variety of ways to achieve better fuel economy.

One way is to have your oil changed regularly. Although most newer model vehicles have a maintenance reminder for oil changes; your driving habits will also determine how frequently your vehicle should undergo an oil change.

It is truly one of the most effective and cost-efficient ways of improving your vehicle’s lifespan, safeguard the engine, and maximize fuel efficiency. It is your oil that provides lubrication and forms a seal between your pistons, rings and cylinder walls to keep your engine cool. So without regular oil changes, your engine will be working much harder than it needs to.

Our Lube/Oil/Filter service includes a visual check of the following items:

  • Engine air filter
  • Brake fluid
  • Power steering fluid
  • Automatic transmission fluid
  • Coolant/antifreeze

Other simple but effective ways to gain better gas mileage include:

  • Checking your tire pressure
  • Using cruise control on long stretches of highway
  • Having an engine check conducted
  • Ensuring your air filter doesn’t need replacing
  • Removing added, unnecessary weight from your vehicle
  • Getting a suspension check done

CJ Auto can help with all of the above through our preventative maintenance in Surrey.
