Gas saving Chicago

Fuel Saving Tips January 26, 2015

The team at Triangle Auto Service in Chicago and Illinois car owners are all talking gas mileage right now. Better gas mileage. Fewer emissions. Chicago drivers want to save the environment and their pocketbooks.
And we all knowóor should knowóthat preventive maintenance will help maximize fuel economy. But is there something more Chicago motorists can do? After all, some of us Chicago folks canít cut back on our driving, and others would like to do more to economize.
Weight is one major enemy of fuel economy. The more you lug around in your vehicle, the more fuel you have to burn driving around town.  And that means buying more gas in Chicago and producing more emissions.
Of course, your cars weight isnít negotiable. And you canít do much about the weight of your passengers. And this isnít an article about diet and exercise.
But look around your car. Are you hauling a bunch of unnecessary weight around Illinois? Do you really need your golf clubs every time you leave your Chicago home? Store sports equipment in the garage. Load it when you need it and store it when you donít. Who knows? The extra exercise just might reduce the other type of weight in your vehicle.
The same goes for anything else in your car: make-up kits, music collections, extra electronics, spare clothing; whatever your particular extras may be. Pack it when you need it; store it when you donít.
Clean out your car. Youíd be surprised how much weight youíre lugging around Chicago in plain old junk. Toss old papers, leftover food, and regular old dirt. Even if itís not a lot of weight, youíll feel better when you get into your car. A good cleaning is also part of good car care.
Now, donít toss stuff you really do need. You do need that spare tireóthe one in your trunk. And a kit of emergency essentials is not a bad idea. But just carry around the day-to-day essentials. You can pack a more extensive kit and store it in your garage, then toss it in your car when you go on a longer trip, but you donít have to lug it around all the time. After all, are you a driver? Or are you a junk chauffeur?    Ask for Bryan or Paul.  Triangle Auto Service 4060 N. Elston Chicago, Illinois 60618 773-539-5858,
