A Few Ways to Improve Your Gas Mileage

When you take off in your new Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep brand vehicle, or Ram, it's important to get the most bang for your buck by driving as efficiently as possible. Here are a few ways that Grand Rapids drivers can boost their vehicle's fuel efficiency:

  • Smooth out your drive: Leave space between you and the car ahead. That way you won't need to consistently slam on the brakes and then waste gas reaccelerating. More following distance gives you the opportunity to coast down to the right speed.
  • Under pressure: Make sure your tires are kept up to the right pressure. When your tires get low, it takes more energy for them to support your vehicle. That increased energy comes from an increased use of gas.
  • Routine oil changes: Changing your oil every 3,000 to 5,000 miles (depending on your model) is a great way to help your engine run more efficiently. It prevents dirt and debris from building up in your engine, and reduces friction.

If you need help with an oil change, visit our MOPAR Grand Rapids Service and Repair Center. Our certified technicians will be glad to quickly and accurately perform routine maintenance like oil and filter changes.
