Fuel Saving Tip: Dirty Oil in Your Carbondale Vehicle

Posted May 23, 2017 9:59 AM



If you're a quart low in your vehicle, there isn't enough motor oil to lubricate your engine properly. The extra friction causes drag that reduces fuel economy while you're driving around the Carbondale area.

The same goes for dirty oil; it doesn't reduce friction properly. The result is you get to watch those numbers at your local Carbondale gas pump rolling higher and higher.

The transmission also needs the proper amount of clean fluid to do its work. When it's in need of service, the transmission drags your fuel economy down.

So keep it clean at The Auto Shop  and give yourself a fighting chance.
