The Importance of a Good Muffler
One of the components which is often ignored whenever you are going to the mechanic is the condition of your muffler. This is actually a very important part of being able to get maximum efficiency form your vehicle. The reason why it is important to have a good operating muffler is because it will help to make sure that the exhaust is able to exit your vehicle as quickly as possible. The faster it can exit, the easier it is to burn more fuel.
Check the Tires and Alignment
Driving straight down the road is not only a matter of convenience. It can also help to keep you safe and make sure that you are getting better gas mileage. If the alignment is off, you will have to turn the wheel to compensate for its drag. If you are not paying attention, it can cause you to drive into another vehicle. Of course, if you keep the wheel turned, it means one of the wheels is being dragged along. This will create a huge drag which is not fuel efficient. A simple alignment check will help to eliminate this problem. Bring the vehicle in and we can check the tires and alignment for you. If needed, we can also rotate the tires. This will help to keep them lasting as long as possible.

It is important to get these inspected before making a long trip this summer. This way, you will be able to leave home with the knowledge that you will most likely be able to get home without incident. If you are getting them checked often, you will only need to replace the pads for your vehicle which is a fairly inexpensive procedure.
