Common Myths About Vehicle Maintenance


Myth - Premium gas will increase your car's miles per gallon.


Mostly False – For over 95% of the vehicles on the road today, this is false. Only certain vehicles, such as some high performance sports cars (think Ferrari, Porsche) are designed to take advantage of higher octane fuel. Stick with what is recommended by your owner’s manual and don’t spend the extra money.

Save $$ - With current gas prices at $4.00 plus per gallon, the average driver can save a couple hundred dollars per year by using regular unleaded fuel.
