Easy Steps to Better Gas Mileage | Lujack's Used Car Center, Davenport IA

Gas prices are finally dropping. But as we know, they can spike at any time. Prices have been dipping below two dollars per gallon for the first time 2009, and many motorists have been seeing a real savings at the pump. Putting some of that savings toward basic auto care can lead to even more miles per gallon and in-turn your gas mileage.

Here are 5 easy steps to help you get better gas mileage:


  • Monday 9:00am - 8:00pm
  • Tuesday 9:00am - 6:00pm
  • Wednesday 9:00am - 6:00pm
  • Thursday 9:00am - 8:00pm
  • Friday 9:00am - 6:00pm
  • Saturday 9:00am - 6:00pm
  • Sunday Closed

·        Check Tire Pressure: Keep tires properly inflated and improve gas mileage by up to 3.3 percent.

·        Use the Right Motor Oil: Improve gas mileage by 1 to 2 percent by using the grade of motor oil recommended by the manufacturer.

·        Make sure Gas Cap is on Tight: Damaged, loose, or missing gas caps allow gas to escape and vaporize.

·        Replace Clogged Air Filters: Replacing clogged air filters on older vehicles can improve fuel economy and will improve performance and acceleration on all vehicles.

·        Check Engine Performance: Keep your engine running efficiently and improve gas mileage by an average of 4 percent.

·        Fix It: Addressing a serious maintenance problem, like a faulty oxygen sensor, can improve mileage by as much as 40 percent
