Follow These Tips for Fuel-Efficient Driving from Murphy Ford in Chester, Pennsylvania!

Fuel-efficient driving not only helps you save money at the gas pump but also helps to keep you and your loved ones safe and helps you take better care of your vehicle. Our first bit of advice is to avoid aggressive driving. Statistics show that aggressive acceleration and hard braking decrease your fuel efficiency by 40%. Fuel-efficient driving means you accelerate and brake at a smooth and reasonable rate. Another key component to driving efficiently is to ensure you have properly inflated tires. Under-inflated tires greatly increase fuel consumption. Be sure to check your tire pressure at least once a month according to your owners manual and stop by a gas station to add air.

A final note for fuel efficient driving is to service your vehicle regularly from trained technicians who know your vehicle inside and out. When engines are poorly tuned they can consume up to 50% more fuel than a well-maintained vehicle.

Check Out These Car Washing Myths from Murphy Ford in Chester, PA!

One car washing myth many fall victim to is the idea that dishwashing detergent from your kitchen is safe to use on your vehicle. The opposite is true! Dishwashing detergent is extremely effective in removing the particles from the surface it’s cleaning. Therefore, it can be damaging to the polymers in your paint. Instead, you should look for soap specified for vehicles.

Another car washing myth many fall victim to is the idea that any old rag, t-shirt or diapers are good items to dry your vehicle. However, the fabric with which these items are made of do a terrible job absorbing water and dirt particles. As a result, old t-shirts just smear the remaining dirt on your vehicle and can even scratch the surface. Instead, you should use microfiber towels or the like that are made to absorb particles.

From sales within our new vehicle inventory and used vehicle inventory to automotive care and even financing, there’s no other place to go than Murphy Ford in Chester, Pennsylvania! We’ll see you soon!
