COST SAVING TIPS

10 Minute Pre-Trip Checkup Can Pay Off

A properly maintained vehicle is safer and more dependable and will even save a few dollars at the gas pumps. Motorists should plan ahead to allow time to perform necessary maintenance themselves or at the local service facility.

Car Care Council offers three suggestions for a traveler's 10-minute pre- trip checklist:

  1. Check all fluids - There are several fluids that require attention: Engine Oil, power steering, brake and transmission fluids, and windshield washer solvent and antifreeze/coolant.

  2. Check all hoses and belts - A belt failure can affect the electrical system, air conditioning, power steering, and the cooling system. Cooling system hoses may be deteriorating from within, so old hoses and clamps in marginal condition might need to be replaced.

  3. Check the tires - Check tire inflation and inspect the tread for uneven wear, indicating the need for wheel alignment. Also look for bulges and bald spots.


Follow these tips to maximize fuel efficiency of your vehicle:

  1. Vehicle gas caps - about 17% of the vehicles on the roads have gas caps that are either damaged, loose or missing altogether, causing 147 million gallons of gas to vaporize every year.

  2. Under inflated tires - when tires aren't inflated properly it's like driving with a parking brake on. It can cost a mile or two per gallon.

  3. Worn spark plugs - A vehicle can have either four, six or eight spark plugs, which fire as many as 3 million times every 1,000 miles, resulting in electrical and chemical erosion from heat.

  4. Dirty air filters - A clogged air filter creates a "rich" mixture - the proportion of gas to air is incorrect. This wastes fuel and causes the engine to lose power. Replacing a clogged air filter can improve gas mileage by as much as 10%.

  5. Don't drive aggresively - Aggressive driving can lower gas mileage by as much as 33% on the highway and 5% on city streets.

  6. Avoid excessive idling - sitting idle gets zero miles per gallon. Letting the vehicle warm up for one to two minutes is sufficient.

  7. Drive the speed limit - Gas mileage decreases rapidly at speeds above 60 mph. Each mile driven over 60 results in an additional 10 cents per gallon. Increase fuel efficiency by using cruise control.

What People Say About Us

  • reviewicon

    Henry is the most honest and hardworking mechanic that I've ever met...After the first visit, I knew I had found my mechanic...He goes above and beyond to run tests to ensure that he fixes your car the right way the first time. He even went to bat for me with the parts manufacturer to have a faulty part covered under a warranty that had expired. I probably couldn't tell you how much time and money he has saved me. He was even nice enough to call my dad to explain the repairs as I'm not well-versed in car mechanics. Henry comes with my highest recommendation if you're looking for a skilled, friendly, and honest mechanic in the Orlando area.

    This may not sound like a big deal but they did exactly what they said they would do. Gave me an estimate. It was accurate. Gave me a time they would contact me regarding the work being complete. They had it done right when they said they would. The job they were to do was done exactly as specified. No surprises. Just honest work.

    Henry is the most honest, reliable mechanic I've ever met in my life. He has been the family mechanic for years now and I recommend all of my family, friends, and coworkers to him. I cannot say enough positive things about him or Sunstate Auto Repair!

    I can tell you from personal experience over the last 15 years using Sunstate Auto that Henry is the best and most honest mechanic you will ever find. I drive out of my way to bring my vehicles to Henry because I trust no one else he has found things that others have missed and he continually tries to look for ways to save me money while keeping me safe. Thank you Henry for all you have done!

    I am SO glad a friend recommended SunState Auto to me. Henry really makes you feel at ease and taken care of when it comes to car issues. I have finally found my honest mechanic in Orlando. I recommend you do too.

    Came in on a few occasions I run my own business that involves having to have a vehicle. He always seems really genuine and gives great advice. Best around I always travel to him no matter where I'm at. One of the best and actually cares.
