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.
If you are beyond “behavior modification” and are worried you may be “spending dollars to save pennies”, give your
BEST, MOST TRUSTWORTHY MECHANICS IN COLORADO! If you’re looking for a place to take your car, THIS is your sign to trust honest accurate auto service. Jen and Eric were soooo nice, explained everything so thoroughly, lent me a rental car to use while they had mine in the shop, cleaned the outside of my car, and were so fast and efficient with their work. They communicated with me regarding every step. I will never take my car anywhere else! This is how you run a business!!
Amazing service! I called Honest Accurate on a Monday mid afternoon, thinking I just needed a quick battery replacement (I needed it quickly since I’m a driver as my occupation), I spoke with Austin and he said to go ahead and bring my car in and they’d check it out. Long story short it ended up being my alternator, and even with not having an appointment, the extra work and getting parts - he made it happen to get all that done, get me rides and get my car back to me the next morning since he knew I needed it back by then! I’ve taken my car to Honest Accurate for years and always been happy but this was a whole new level of customer service! Seriously, Honest Accurate is a great place to trust your car work to! Thanks again!!
