The Mac's Tire & Auto Repair Guide to Saving Fuel: Beware of Myths

Posted November 27, 2017 3:02 AM

There's a lot of auto advice in MI right now on how to save money on gas. Some of it is good advice. Some of it isn't. Some of it is myth. And it may well be a scam. Plain and simple. When someone offers you a product designed to save money on gas, ask yourself, “Does this sound too good to be true?” If the answer is yes, do more research.

The internet offers us a convenient and quick way to research someone's claims about gas savings. Center Line drivers can usually find out in only minutes whether that claim is questionable or not.

Chances are other Center Line drivers have already tried what you're being offered. If you find evidence that others feel they have been scammed, you should be wary of becoming the next victim. There aren't any pills, magic or otherwise, that you can drop into your gas tank to improve your gas mileage. Drop in enough of those pills and you can actually harm your vehicle. The last thing you need is a bunch more sediment or unknown, dissolved additives in your fuel.

There actually are proven, sensible ways that you can maintain good gas mileage, however. Good car care and consistent preventive maintenance are the keys to good fuel economy. An oil change at Mac's Tire & Auto Repair in Center Line and a new fuel filter, when needed, will keep your engine running efficiently, which will translate to good fuel economy. It may be mundane, but it's solid, proven advice.

So be smart. Listen to advice from qualified Mac's Tire & Auto Repair professionals, and stay away from unverified “magic” and conspiracy theories. Your wallet—and your vehicle—will thank you in the end.

Testimonials

  • Honesty, What makes this place great is their honesty. I feel very comfortable taking my vehicle to Mac's knowing they aren't going to rip me off for repairs I don't need.
    -Cindy T.

  • Another great experience! I have been bringing my car here for service for some time now. Fortunately, I have a vehicle that has held up very well (209,000 miles and counting), but when something does go wrong, I know exactly where to bring it. Mac's Tire & Auto Repair has always been forthright and honest with me; they WILL NOT try to sell you something you don't need. My most recent visit required new brakes, rotors & calipers on the front end. This isn't a cheap job, no matter where you get it done, but I must say, I don't think my brakes were this good even when the car was new. Money very well spent. Keep up the good work!
    -Gary M.
