Quick fixes can add up

Did you know millions of gallons of gasoline evaporate every year? This can be improved by something as simple as making sure you have a tight fitting gas cap. Tip: replace the gas cap every three or four years.

In this video, mechanic David Rogers shows how a few easy mechanical tune ups can help your car get better gas mileage. Another quick tip he has: make sure your air filters are clean. Filthy filters make your car work harder to get air, which makes it burn more gas per mile. Change the air filter every other oil change. The gas filter also should be clean. Guarantee that it is by replacing it once a year! Last tip for the road: corroded spark plugs will not burn gasoline efficiently, so keep those spark plugs up to snuff too!
