As an unwilling participant of rapidly escalating fuel prices, do you find yourself cursing “Big Oil” or your current set of wheels? Well, in reality, cursing will not help the situation. Only you have the power to reduce your fuel costs. However, nothing is free in life and fuel savings is no exception. Here are two totally different approaches to improved fuel mileage and, the associated costs to realize those savings:
• Slow down …. take a chill pill: the fuel consumption penalty for driving 65 mph vs. 55 mph averages 20% … 75mph vs. 55 mph averages 30% …big savings! Your cost is the extra time in your vehicle vs. your destination. A 20-mile trip to work at 55 mph vs. 65 mph will cost you about 3 minutes and 20 seconds… your choice.
• Buy a more fuel efficient vehicle: If you drive 15,000 miles per year and currently get 24 mpg, you could save $56/month in fuel costs by purchasing a car that gets 34 mpg ($3.65/gallon). Your cost to achieve this fuel savings would be the additional costs (if any) of interest charges, sales tax, licensing fees, auto insurance and depreciation….. once again, your choice.

I was having clutch problems with my sedan and reached out to Honest Accurate for help. Jen was able to suggest a tow company for me and slot me in for repairs later in the same week. I appreciate the speedy communication (even through text!) that I had with Honest Accurate as they diagnosed the issues with my car. They even brought up some other non-urgent items to keep my eyes on. It wasn't an inexpensive repair by any means, but my car is running great! I would definitely recommend Honest Accurate!
They are literally the only mechanic shop I'll ever go to. They were amazing and threw in a rental car because it was going to take longer than what they had anticipated!? Talk about your awesome customer service. I will be recommending them to all of my friends and family! Seriously great prices, great customer service, plus great mechanics, and great everything!
