D & D Service Center Fuel Saving Tip: Myths

With high fuel prices comes lots of gas-saving advice.  Some of it, like what you hear on AutoNetTV, is great.  Some are myths.  And some are just designed to prey on people desperate to save some money on gas.

When you get one of those e-mails that are going around telling you how to save gas, try to think it through.  Does it really make sense?  Does it defy the laws of physics?  Do some research on the internet or ask your service advisor.

There aren’t any magic pills you can drop in your gas tank and the government hasn’t suppressed a device you can clamp on your fuel line to make your car run on air.

So next time you get one of those e-mails, check it out with an automotive professional.  You’ll get more bang for your buck with an oil change or an engine air filter replacement.
