Save even more at the pump with Halsey's Auto Center

Save Money

As gas prices continue to drop, motorists should take advantage of their savings at the pump and invest it back into their vehicles. By spending a little now to increase fuel efficiency, drivers can multiply fuel savings and save more money at the pump.

The national average of the cost of a gallon of gas has been above $3 since 2010 but is expected to dip below that mark this year, according to a recent forecast by energy information service GasBuddy.com.

A small investment in simple and inexpensive auto care will add up to better fuel economy and even more savings.

The non-profit Car Care Council encourages motorists to be car care aware and perform simple steps to improve fuel efficiency and save money.

  • Engine Performance: Keep your car properly tuned to improve gas mileage by an average of 4 percent.
  • Tire Pressure: Keep tires properly inflated and improve gas mileage by up to 3.3 percent.
  • Motor Oil: Improve gas mileage by 1 to 2 percent by using the grade of motor oil recommended by the manufacturer.
  • Air Filters: Replacing clogged air filters on older vehicles can improve fuel economy and will improve performance and acceleration on all vehicles.
  • Gas Cap: Damaged, loose or missing gas caps allow gas to vaporize into the air.
  • Fix It: Addressing a serious maintenance problem, like a faulty oxygen sensor, can improve mileage by as much as 40 percent, according to fueleconomy.gov.
