We offer routine auto service in Charlotte that can ensure your car stays in tip-top condition AND gives you the best fuel efficiency possible. On top of that, our techs have additional tips that can bump up those MPGs to help save you some money! Let’s get started!
Use oil changes to improve your fuel efficiency!
Tip number one: GET OIL CHANGES! You should be scheduling routine oil changes in Charlotte anyway if you don’t want your engine to seize up; however, they do help bump up your fuel efficiency by ensuring that your engine is running as smoothly as it gets. You should also ensure you use the right type of motor oil! Check your owner’s manual or ask one of our Charlotte Toyota Service techs to point you in the right direction – they can help you choose the right grade of motor oil to put in your car.
Make sure you change your air filter! A dirty or clogged air filter can have a significant impact on your car’s fuel efficiency; our Charlotte Toyota Service Center can unclog it and get you back on the road with a fresh, clean air filter and upped fuel efficiency in no time!
Keep your car tuned up if it’s an older model! Things like spark plugs and wires can actually have an effect on how fuel efficient your car is, so ensure you use quality parts and that you maintain them with regular Toyota service in Charlotte. Our techs can let you know when you’re due for a replacement!
Use the right type of fuel. Our Toyota Service techs noted that using premium fuel in a car that doesn’t need it won’t have much of an effect on performance, but if your car REQUIRES premium fuel, you definitely need to use it for maximum performance!
Make sure your tires are in good shape! If your tires are underinflated, it can have a seriously drastic (and negative) effect on your ride’s fuel efficiency! Keep your tires in good condition and get them refilled whenever they’re low on air – our Charlotte Toyota Service techs can check the PSI for you and make sure they’re full enough.
