Pump Up Your Fuel Efficiency
Getting regular maintenance and checkups can help improve your vehicle’s fuel economy—and best of all, it can save you some money at the pump.
It’s time for new tires if yours have any of the following signs:
- Current tread level at the wear indicators; cuts, tears, bubbles, cracking, or uneven treadwear
- Poor ride quality; or your DOT number indicating they need replacement. Worn tires have an adverse effect on the acceleration, braking, and cornering of your vehicle. Additionally, under-inflated tires can lower gas mileage by about 0.2% for every 1 psi drop in the average pressure of all tires. So, getting new Toyota tires can drastically improve your stopping distance, ride quality, and fuel efficiency.
Not only can oil contribute to proper vehicle performance and help extend engine life, but you can also improve your gas mileage by up to 1%–2% by using the manufacturer’s recommended grade of motor oil. Genuine Toyota and Mobil 1 Motor Oils meet the specifications for your Toyota to help optimize vehicle performance, reliability, and fuel economy. To keep track of when your vehicle needs oil changes, follow the suggested vehicle service schedule in the owner’s manual.
