Fuel and energy is that food that makes your vehicle go. To keep your vehicle healthy and running smooth, KNOW WHAT YOU EAT. It matters! We check the health of your digestive system.
General Maintenance Timelines
Rule of thumb for maintenance and fluid/filter replacements:
HOT CARS and HOT BODIES… They are alike in Soooo many ways!
Hot human bodies need oxygen (think heavy breathing) and food to keep going in the same way cars need fuel and oxygen for combustion. In a car, the starter motor kicks over the engine before oxygen consuming fuels can take over. This happens in a way that is freakishly similar to how anaerobic energy is processed in the human body. Both of these systems also require stored energy to be replaced.
In 2016, about 143.37 billion gallons (or about 3.41 billion barrels) of finished motor gasoline were consumed.
In the United States, a daily average of about 391.73 million gallons (or about 9.33 million barrels per day).
Estimate of repair time: About 45 mins
This was the largest amount of annual motor gasoline consumption on record. The average American consumes approximately 500 gallons of motor gasoline per year. If the price of Gasoline is at $2.87 that’s $1,435.00 in one year.
DIYHow to calculate your MPG
- Filling the vehicle’s gas tank completely and writing down the vehicle’s odometer reading (mileage).
- When it’s time to refuel, filling the tank completely and writing down the number of gallons it took to fill the tank and the vehicle’s new odometer reading. Once two odometer readings are taken, MPG can be caculated.
- Caculating the distance driven by subtracting the previous odometer reading from the new one.
- Dividing the number of miles driven by the number of gallons it took to fill the tank. The results is the vehicle’s MPG for that driving period.
- Filling the vehicle’s gas tank completely and resetting the trip odometer.
- When it’s time to re-fuel
- Filling the tank completely
- Writing down the number of gallons it took to fill the tank
- Writing down the mileage on the trip odometer
- Resetting the trip odometer
- Dividing the number of miles driven by the number of gallons it took to fill the tank.
