EDISON - The owner of the Mobil 1 Lube Express in Edison says that if you get regular oil changes and check the air filter of your car it will prolong the amount of time gas will last in your car.
The owner, Eric Leighton, says that "a clogged air filter makes your engine work more, work harder to get air into the engine." He says regular filter changes will make for better air flow and better gas mileage. Another tip is to drive at a slow and steady pace. Leighton says that constant accelerating and then braking will burn fuel faster. He also says to keep an eye on the tire pressure.
Leighton says taking things out of your trunk will also increase your miles per gallon.
