Good afternoon. My name is Tom Brintzenhofe, Certified Master Mechanic out of Reading, Pennsylvania and today I want to talk a little bit about how to save money on gas. The easiest thing to do when we are talking about our vehicle in getting the most mileage out of your gallon of gas is the first thing you want to keep in mind is that a properly maintained vehicle running its optimum performance is going to save you the most money on gas. The things you can do to make sure your vehicle is doing the best it can is have a tune up done at regular intervals. You will notice when you are driving your vehicle whether it has got a little bit of a misfire. That will give you a bad fuel economy. Other things you can do when it comes to performance of your engine is to make sure your oxygen sensors are replaced usually about every 60,000 miles. If they start to go bad you will see a drop in fuel economy. The other thing you can do, your main thing you can do to and it doesn't cost you anything to keep your fuel mileage where it needs to be is the tire pressure. Low tire pressure will really really diminish your miles per gallon but the simplest way to do is is just make sure your tire pressure is where it needs to be. Make sure your vehicle is tuned up properly and that is about all there is to it about getting the most gas mileage out of your vehicle.
