Tips for Better Gas Mileage

Your gas mileage mostly depends on what kind of car you drive; engine displacement and vehicle weight are the largest determining factors on gas mileage, and there’s not much you can do to change either of those. That doesn’t mean attempting to improve your fuel economy is a completely hopeless endeavor, however. With these tips from Griffis Automotive Repair, Inc in Orlando, you might be surprised how much your fuel mileage can be improved.

We at Griffis Automotive Repair, Inc in Orlando have prepared some tips for you, to help you better understand what it means to winterize a car, and how to prepare for the months ahead.
