Vehicle owners should be aware that there are factors within their control that can help them save money at the pump. For instance, misaligned front wheels can increase fuel consumption by 2 percent, and under inflated tires can increase fuel consumption by 5 percent. Moreover, a malfunctioning thermostat in the cooling system can increase fuel consumption by 7 percent. And, worn spark plugs and other ignition components (as well as clogged air filters) can increase fuel consumption by 11 percent. Taken together, these problems have the potential to increase fuel costs by about 25 percent. By paying attention to these matters, vehicle owners have it within their power to make their automobiles run cleaner, more smoothly, and less expensively.
