How Regular Service Helps with Fuel Economy

June 20th, 2022 by

Looking to improve your fuel efficiency? You may be surprised to realize that Lexus service can truly affect your fuel economy. Make sure you schedule routine maintenance at Lexus of North Miami to make your next tank of gas last.

Engine Oil Change

Your engine oil flows through your engine, keeping its parts from rubbing together and helping to limit dust and debris. As it ages, it starts to thicken in consistency and struggles to move without restriction. This makes your engine less efficient, which will make your vehicle less fuel efficient too.

Tire Inflation and Rotation

When your tire pressure’s low, that will increase drag and rolling resistance. This means your engine will exert more energy than necessary and consume more fuel. In the same instance, regular tire rotations help keep your tires from wearing unevenly. Uneven wear can also diminish your gas mileage since your tires won’t roll effectively.

Spark Plug Replacement

Your spark plugs play a crucial role in your vehicle’s performance. They ignite the air/fuel mixture in your engine’s combustion chamber. However, as they age, they won’t work as well. On average, we recommend drivers replace their spark plugs every 60,000 miles to keep your vehicle running efficiently.

Air Filter Replacement

Your air filter also keeps your engine clean and protected from particles. However, the more contaminants it collects, the dirtier it gets. This restricts your engine from getting proper airflow, which can also affect your engine’s performance. Any time your engine has to work harder than necessary, your gas mileage will suffer.
