Steve Schmitt of Litchfield Helps You

Improve Your Car's Fuel-Efficiency

Your car has been there for you through all the ups and downs. Instead of searching for the next new thing, you can make your vehicle shine. Let Steve Schmitt of Litchfield help you discover ways to keep your current vehicle while maintaining or improving its fuel efficiency.

Maintenance to Improve or Maintain Your Vehicle's Fuel-Efficiency

Regardless of if you drive a car, truck, or SUV, there are things you can do to help keep your vehicle performing at the top of its game. If you're unsure how to perform the below maintenance, don't fret. Let the experts at Steve Schmitt of Litchfield help.

  • Choose Your Oil Wiseley - The right oil makes a big difference in your engine performance. Contact our service experts and let us help you locate the oil that will best suit your vehicle.
  • Check Your Engine's Air Intakes - Your engine requires air to breathe. It decreases power output and wastes fuel when it doesn't get enough air due to clogged air intake.
  • Keep an Eye on Your Gas Cap - A broken or cracked gas cap allows gas or diesel to evaporate. This can also happen if your gas cap isn't seated properly.
  • Check Your Tire Pressure - Improperly inflated tires cause greater friction, thereby causing your engine to perform harder. The harder your engine works, the more fuel it uses.
  • Is it Cheaper to Own a Gasoline Vehicle or EV?

    With rising gas prices and the push to go electric, you may wonder if switching to an EV is cheaper. According to Car & Driver, on average, it's more expensive to purchase and drive an EV than a traditional gasoline engine. Contact Steve Schmitt of Litchfield if you have any questions about the benefits of keeping your gas-fueled vehicle or making the switch to EV. We'll be happy to help.
