Replace the Air Filter in Your Car

Aug 17, 2007
There many ways on how you can save your money on your car. And here is one for you to know on how to save some more bucks.

Your car is running slow with lower mileage? This can be caused by the blockage in the car fuel filter. Some time the car gas comes with dusts which are filtered by the fuel filter. But you need to take good care of your fuel filter as well. Better tires can gives you better fuel consumption. So take a good care of your tires to save on your fuel consumptions.

Studies at FuelEconomy.com suggest replacing the air filter in your car on a regular basis. Replacing a clogged air filter can improve the mileage that you get with your car by up to 10 percent.

When you calculate that 10 percent into gasoline savings, you'll be saving up to 15 cents per gallon. You can ask your mechanic to replace the air filter in your car or you can do it yourself.

Studies show that not only should you be replacing the air filter in your car on a regular basis, you should also be maintaining and regularly replacing the fuel filter. The cleaner that your fuel filter is the more efficiently your vehicle is going to run, saving you more money in fuel costs. You can replace the fuel filter yourself or have it replaced when your car is in for a regular maintenance checkup.

You should be paying attention to the alignment in your car. Improper alignment will cause a certain amount of engine drag, which will increase the amount of gas that you are using. The better maintained that car is the better all around performance that you'll get. Talk to your mechanic about your next alignment servicing.

One of the ways that you can tell if your car is due for alignment is if there is a pulling on the steering wheel when you are driving.

If you are experiencing a type of pulling action it is important that you schedule an appointment to have an alignment done.

When you regularly rotate your tires and check them for uneven use and wear you will find that you are saving in both tires and gas costs.

After you have an alignment done on your car most mechanics will also rotate the tires. This doesn't by any means mean that you should wait until you need an alignment to get those tires rotated. Check your tires regularly to see how they are doing on wear and tear.

If your tires are showing signs of balding you'll want to replace them immediately since the better your tires are the better fuel consumption you'll see.

Not only should you be maintaining the engine of your car, you should also be paying attention to the tires that you are driving on.

- Purchase a tire gauge and check your car's tire pressure every month. When you are driving around on tires that are under-inflated you can reduce the fuel efficiency of your car by up to 2 percent for each pound that the tires are under-inflated.
- Under-inflated tires wear out faster, which again contributes to higher gas consumption.
- Not only will you save on gas consumption when you maintain your tires, studies show that you will also save money on the maintenance of your vehicle by up to USD 250 each year.
- The best time to check your tire pressure is when it's cool outside or in the morning after your car has been sitting for several hours without driving.
- Use appropriate tires for each season. When you put away your winter tires in the warm weather you'll be able to use them for at least two years.

Changing the car air filter is not very tough, but you can always take your car to your neighborhood garage to change it and save some more money on the fuel with regular replacement of your car air filter.

Next time when you take your car for regular checkups make sure you change the fuel filter as well. This can give you good mileage and saves you a great deal of your time and energy.

Proper alignment of you car can save your fuel expenses and this can gives you a better mileage with less pull on the steering wheel when you are driving. Check the alignment of your car properly and drive in peace. Rotating the tire can save both tires and gas cost.
