  • The The Muffler Doctor Guide to Saving Fuel: Beware of Myths

    Sunday 20 January 2019

    There's a lot of auto advice in MO right now on how to save money on gas. Some of it is good advice. Some of it isn't. Some of it is myth. And it may well be a scam. Plain and simple. When someone offers you a product designed to save money on gas, ask yourself, “Does this sound too good to be true?” If the answer is yes, do more research.

    The internet offers us a convenient and quick way to research someone's claims about gas savings. KANSAS CITY drivers can usually find out in only minutes whether that claim is questionable or not.

    Chances are other KANSAS CITY drivers have already tried what you're being offered. If you find evidence that others feel they have been scammed, you should be wary of becoming the next victim. There aren't any pills, magic or otherwise, that you can drop into your gas tank to improve your gas mileage. Drop in enough of those pills and you can actually harm your vehicle. The last thing you need is a bunch more sediment or unknown, dissolved additives in your fuel.

    There actually are proven, sensible ways that you can maintain good gas mileage, however. Good car care and consistent preventive maintenance are the keys to good fuel economy. An oil change at The Muffler Doctor in KANSAS CITY and a new fuel filter, when needed, will keep your engine running efficiently, which will translate to good fuel economy. It may be mundane, but it's solid, proven advice.

    So be smart. Listen to advice from qualified The Muffler Doctor professionals, and stay away from unverified “magic” and conspiracy theories. Your wallet—and your vehicle—will thank you in the end.
