Fuel Saving Tip: Dirty Oil

Drivers who are a couple quarts low on oil, don’t have enough oil to lubricate their engine properly. The extra friction causes drag that reduces fuel economy.

Same goes for dirty oil. It doesn’t reduce friction properly. The result is you get to watch those numbers at the gas pump rolling higher and higher.

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

So, it’s important to keep it clean and give yourself a fighting chance by getting a transmission service at Douglas Automotive Repair.
