Gas prices aren't what they used to be, that's why getting the best fuel economy with your vehicle is crucial. Let's face it, we all like to save money where we can, and at the gas station is a great place to start. When you get better fuel economy, it lightens the load on other areas of your life like your work commute, getting the kids to school, or daily errands like grocery shopping. We've listed a few things that can be done to help increase your vehicle's gas mileage while dealing with high gas prices. Check out these handy tips and tricks to help get the best fuel economy from your Subaru.

  1. A little known fact is that the air in your tires affects your fuel usage. If your tires don't have enough air inside, your vehicle will need to work extra hard, using more fuel to accelerate, decelerate and go around corners. You can find the proper PSI for your tires in your Owner's Manual.  When you have your tires inflated to the correct number, you can help increase your vehicle's gas mileage by up to 4%. If you're still unclear on how much goes into your tire, come on by and one of our technicians would be happy to help.

  2. No matter how well your Subaru is engineered, simply using the wrong oil can affect your overall fuel economy. Believe it or not, when you use the proper brand of oil it can help increase the fuel economy of your vehicle by up to 2%. We always recommend genuine OEM parts and that includes genuine Subaru brand oil for your vehicle, which we use in our very own service department.

  3. Keeping your engine fine tuned can contribute greatly to improving your fuel economy. If the emissions system of your vehicle isn't functioning at its best, it can negatively affect your fuel economy by up to 4%. Making sure your oxygen sensor is performing well is another way to keep fuel economy up. If the oxygen sensor is not working properly, it can cause a loss of up to 40% from the original MPG! To prevent these issues from occurring, we recommend scheduling an appointment with our factory trained and certified service technicians to have your Subaru tuned-up. It's always a good idea to get a tune-up at each intermediate and major service interval.

  4. Having your engine fine tuned can go a long way to improving your fuel economy, not to mention helping to extend the longevity of your ride. It might seem silly to tune your engine if everything is in working order, but if your emissions system isn't functioning at 100% or as well as it should be, it can negatively affect your fuel economy by up to 4%. And if the oxygen sensor happens to be malfunctioning, this can lead to a loss of up to 40% of your vehicle's original MPG! To prevent this issue we recommend having your vehicle tuned-up at each intermediate service interval as well as each major service interval.
