Fuel Saving Tip: Auto Myths Around Omaha

December 9, 2018



With high fuel prices in Omaha, NE, comes lots of gas saving advice. Some of it, like what you hear on  drive is great.  When you get one of those e-mails that's going around telling you how to save gas, try to think it through.

Does it really make sense? Does it defy the laws of physics?

Do some research on the internet or ask your Omaha, NE, service advisor at Tuffy Tire & Auto Service Center Millard.

There aren't any magic pills you can drop in your gas tank, and the government hasn't suppressed a device you can clamp on your fuel line to make your vehicle run on air. Not even in Omaha!

So next time you get one of those e-mails, check it out with an automotive professional. You'll get more bang for your buck with an oil change or an engine air filter replacement.

We're here for you at Tuffy Tire & Auto Service Center Millard, so give us a call at 402-895-4274 for good honest advice about your vehicle.
