It’s no secret that the price of gas goes up in the summer time, and there are a couple of culprits that we can blame this on. The first reason is demand. More traveling means that more people need to buy gas. The other reason is that gas can evaporate more quickly in the heat. In order to cope with the heat, the gas needs to be denser in the summertime, and therefore more expensive. The good news is that you don’t have to let the high gas prices get you down. Follow these maintenance tips from our Asian auto repair experts in Las Vegas on how to make the most out of your gas money:
Tires- Under-inflated tires could cause your gas mileage to suffer by an estimated 10-15 percent. If your tires are under-inflated, you are doing more than just wasting gas, you are setting yourself up for having to replace your tires a lot sooner than if they were properly inflated.
Air Filters- Neglecting your air filter is a mistake that many car owners ... read more
