Three Easy Steps To Improved Performance

Posted: 2/14/2013

Using a fuel system cleaner can help restore your vehicle’s fuel economy
Using a fuel system cleaner can help restore your vehicle’s fuel economy.

(NAPSI)—A properly maintained vehicle can keep you on the road to safety and savings. It will run more efficiently and extend the life of your vehicle. Even if you don’t feel the results from each small improvement, several together can make a big difference. Here are three to consider:

Oil Forward Thinking

The old adage that “oil is oil” has given way to an increased use in synthetic motor oil over conventional. Conventional motor oil can break down quickly, making it harder for your engine’s internal parts to move. According to the experts at autos.com, “Any step you can do to reduce the friction in your engine will result in better gas mileage and improve fuel economy.”

Not all synthetic oils are the same. The additives that oil companies mix with their base oil determine its performance. Take premium synthetic motor oil Royal Purple, for example. It combines premium base oils with proprietary additive technologies to create high-performance motor oils that optimize engine performance, increasing fuel efficiency and protecting the engine from wear and corrosion.

If you’re concerned about the environment, you may be relieved to know that using synthetic motor oil can be part of your “green” initiative. Look for the words “Energy Conserving” or “Resource Conserving” on the API performance label. By using synthetic oil, depending on your driving habits, you can change your oil at 10,000 miles instead of the quick-oil-change standard of 3,000. This saves you money and reduces the amount of used oil put back into the environment.

Spark Matters

Spark plugs aren’t commonly thought of when it comes to vehicle maintenance, but they play a critical role in how your car works. Spark plugs ignite the compressed gas that goes into the engine cylinder. The power and efficiency in gasoline engines depends on consistently strong sparks. Spark plugs will still spark after 10,000 miles but because of the weaker spark, the fuel combustion will be incomplete, resulting in reduced power and fuel economy.

Easy Increase

One inexpensive and easy way to increase your vehicle’s performance and gas mileage is to use a fuel system cleaner every three months or 3,000 miles. For example, Royal Purple’s fuel system cleaner and stabilizer, Max-Clean, can clean the fuel injection system to reduce engine buildup and restore fuel economy.

Taking the time to care for your car can keep it running more efficiently and improve its performance for longer life on the road.
