How Do You Save Gas in PEQUANNOCK, NJ?

No one in PEQUANNOCK, NJ, likes to spend a chunk of change at the gas pump. Rising NJ fuel prices, however, have spurred PEQUANNOCK drivers to focus on how to improve their fuel economy. North Americans literally drive billions of miles/kilometers less each month during times of high fuel prices. But we still need to drive (we love our vehicles, after all!), so it makes sense to try and increase our fuel economy however we can.Let's look at a real life example. This man has one of those really big SUVs. Lots of kids and horses to haul around, you know. His family was planning a four day camping trip. Here's what he did to cut his fuel costs:First, he installed a new, high flow engine air filter. Then he had his service center change his oil, flush his cooling system and service his front and rear differentials along with the transfer case. He also had a fuel system cleaning, replaced his PCV valve and breather element. He also made sure his tires were ... read more

Fuel Saving Tip: Dirty Oil in Your PEQUANNOCK Vehicle

If you're a quart low in your vehicle, there isn't enough motor oil to lubricate your engine properly. The extra friction causes drag that reduces fuel economy while you're driving around the PEQUANNOCK area.The same goes for dirty oil; it doesn't reduce friction properly. The result is you get to watch those numbers at your local PEQUANNOCK gas pump rolling higher and higher.The transmission also needs the proper amount of clean fluid to do its work. When it's in need of service, the transmission drags your fuel economy down.So keep it clean at BOCK AUTOMOTIVE  and give yourself a fighting chance.

Fuel Saving Tip: Slow Down Around PEQUANNOCK

There's not much we can do about the price of gas in PEQUANNOCK, NJ, but we do quite a bit about how much we use as we're driving on our PEQUANNOCK streets.Our driving habits can dramatically affect our fuel economy.The first thing we can do is watch the 'go-pedal.' Hard acceleration just sucks the gas. Gently leave stop lights and plan lane changes so you don't need to floor it. That can save you hundreds of dollars a year.Go a little slower on the freeway. Once you're going more than 65 miles an hour (105 kilometers per hour), your fuel economy starts to drop dramatically. Leave early so you don't need to rush to be on time. And cruise control is your friend – steady speed uses less gas.Plan errands ahead. Make fewer trips by combining errands.Hey at current gas prices, a lead-foot might as well be a gold foot.

Higher Mileage Service Intervals for PEQUANNOCK

PEQUANNOCK drivers have probably noticed that the government mandates a lot of equipment on cars: emission devices and control computers, safety equipment like airbags and crash worthiness requirements. All of this is great for the motoring public in the PEQUANNOCK area, but it does add quite a bit to the price of a new car.Because new cars are more expensive, PEQUANNOCK residents are driving their old cars longer. The average car is now over nine years old. 68% of vehicles on the road have more than 75,000 miles/120,000 kilometers.
