Reagan met with Brian, the service manager at Doug Smith Autoplex, in American Fork to learn a few tips that can improve your fuel economy. 

  1. Check tire pressure
    • If they are under inflated, there is more resistance. 
  2. Use proper engine oil.
    • Synthetic is the way to go. It will help your car withstand heat and the longevity is better. 
  3. Lighten the load.
    • Remove heavy objects in your car so they don’t weigh it down. 
  4. Lighten the led foot.
    • Let up on the heavy acceleration.
