Keep Your Hanover Park Car Breathing Free: Engine Air Filter

Hey Hanover Park car owners – this is something really amazing: For every gallon of gas your pickup burns, it uses 12,000 gallons of air. All of that air has to be filtered to keep your engine clean. That's like a hundred gallons of air every block! The engine air filter is just another example of a very important but inexpensive part that has to do a tremendous amount of work. And when it works, everything goes well. But, when it doesn't, well, it can lead to costly problems. Of course, your auto maker recommends how often to change your air filter.

Fuel Saving Tip: Tire Pressure Saves Fuel In Palatine

Under-inflated tires waste gas for lots of folks in the Palatine area. Think how hard it is to walk in sand – you just have to work harder because of the resistance. When your tires don't have enough air in them, their rolling resistance is dramatically increased and it simply takes more gas to get from Hanover Park to Palatine. Always check your tire pressure when you gas up at one of our local Palatine service stations. If they're low – even just a little bit – bring them up to proper pressure. There's a sticker on the inside of your driver's door that gives the manufacturer's recommended tire pressure. And don't rely on your tire pressure monitoring system to alert you to when you need more air. The TPMS system is set to warn you when pressure drops twenty percent below recommendations. That's severely under inflated and you needed more air a long time ago. And if you have a slow leak – get it fixed right away at ... read more
