Getting the Most Out of Your Gas

March 6, 2019 2:54 pm Published by

With gas prices constantly going up and down, it has never been more important to get the most out of your gas. There are a few things that you can do as a driver to get better gas mileage like keeping your RPM at a nominal level and keeping your acceleration low. Certain cars even have gauges to let you know how efficiently you are driving at any given time. So how can you make sure that the gas that you are buying is going as far as it possibly can? You can start by visiting your local U Pull & Pay and getting all the parts you need to keep your car running smoothly and cleanly.

Change Your Oil Filter

Oil that goes unchanged for a long period of time can become thick and viscous. That thick oil spreads throughout your engine and clogs up the inner workings of your car. If you think about your engine like the heart of your car, thick oil acts like fatty plaque that greatly hinders your car’s ability to perform and can greatly affect your overall gas mileage. The best way to avoid this issue is by changing your oil and oil filter regularly. Make sure that you get the correct oil filter for your particular car, as certain cars have very different filters. You can find a great selection of oil filters right here at U Pull & Pay.

Avoid the Tanker

It may seem counterintuitive, but if you pull up to the gas station and the tanker truck is there filling up the underground gas reservoir, you should turn around and head to the next station. You might think that if the tanker is there that you will be getting the “Freshest gas,” but the reality is that you are getting the total opposite. When the tanker truck is filling up the underground tank, the moving gas stirs up deposited sediment that usually sits at the bottom of the tank. These sediments can actively clog up your engine and cause deposits in your gas tank and engine. If you have a favorite gas station that you have to go to but the tanker is there, try waiting for a few hours before you fill up your car. After a few hours, the sediment will resettle in the underground tank and the gas will be ready to use again.

Trust Your Gas Provider

Not all gas is filtered to the same standards. You have probably heard the different names gas companies give their premium products but don’t quite understand the science behind it. Smaller gas companies that offer cheap deals on gas sound appealing, but you should always buy your gas from a trusted provider.

If you are trying to get the most out of your gas, you need to make sure that your oil filter and the rest of your engine is running smoothly. Come into your local U Pull & Pay today to find unbeatable prices on all the car parts you are looking for.
