Maintenance

Maintenance. Regular maintenance is the single most important thing you can do to maximize the efficiency, longevity and value of your vehicle. Let us help you keep your ride in top condition. Follow instructions in your owner's manual for minimum maintenance, or ask us for recommendations for maximum efficiency and longevity based upon our experience with your vehicle type and driving patterns.

Low maintenance doesn't mean *no* maintenance. Feel free to ask us about anything related to your vehicle, it's our job to keep you on the road, running safely and efficiently!

Fuel. Use fuel with the minimum octane required for your vehicle, extra octane won't make it run any better. If it says 87 octane in your owners manual, use 87 octane, not 89 or 91, it's a waste of your money, and you won't produce more power (perhaps less, though) unless your engine is in a poor state of tune or you're just using bad fuel. Engine misfire, poor fuel economy, or rough running are often indicators of fouled injectors, clogged fuel filter, or a failing oxygen sensor; bad or stale fuel may be the root cause. One last recommendation: don't use blended fuels unless you buy your fuel at a station that sells lots of fuel. Blended fuels undergo phase separation and end up contaminated with water (and the rust from the underground fuel tank) if they are not freshened regularly, that gunk can end up in your fuel system.
