Preventative Maintenance: How to Improve Your Fuel Economy in 2023

Preventative maintenance can offer a lot of benefits. Not only in ensuring your vehicle isn’t susceptible to unexpected emergency repairs, but – along with improving the lifespan of your vehicle, regular maintenance can also improve your fuel economy. Which is likely music to EVERYONE’S ears – and CJ Auto is here to help!

How to Improve Your Fuel Economy in 2023

A few things you can do to improve your fuel economy in 2023 include:

  1. Keep your vehicle well-maintained: Regularly check and replace air filters, spark plugs, and other engine components to ensure your vehicle is running efficiently.
  • Keep your Tires Inflated: Underinflated Tires can lower your fuel efficiency.
  • Reduce extra weight: And we don’t mean exercise! Although, perhaps that’s motivation too. Rather, by removing unnecessary items from your vehicle you can increase your fuel economy ever so slightly – and it all adds up.
  • Avoid excessive idling: Idling can waste fuel and produce unnecessary emissions.
  • Use the recommended grade of oil: Using the recommended grade of oil for your vehicle can help improve your fuel economy.

Use apps such as the Carbon App to help you better understand your emissions. As well, use Google maps to find the most efficient route for minimal travel time. Here in BC – there are multiple expectations in regards to emission worth understanding – as described here.
