Money Saving Driving Tips

If you are like most people, you are always looking for ways to spend less and save more. You’ve probably considered cutting your utility costs, entertainment costs, and cut back on shopping. But have you ever thought about how much money you spend on driving? The gas that you put in your tank, wear and tear on your vehicle and tires, car insurance, and car notes add up fast. The good news is that there are some easy ways to spend less on driving, including keeping up with your maintenance appointments at York Tire & Auto Service in Red Lion, PA.

Find the cheapest gas prices

Have you ever sat down to think about how much you spend on gas each week? It may not seem like much when you run to a gas station to top off your tank or get enough to get you to and from work that day, but when you look at how much you spend in a week, you would be surprised. Instead of making a last-minute stop at the closest station, use an app like GasBuddy, GasGuru, or Waze to find the cheapest gas in your area.

Keep an eye on your windshield

It has happened to all of us. You are driving down the road, minding your own business and a pebble gets kicked up into your windshield. That little ding may not look like much, but it can quickly spread or spiderweb causing you to need a full-on windshield replacement.

We recommend handling that little ding immediately so it doesn’t turn into an expensive replacement. The cheapest option is to keep a windshield repair kit in your glovebox for these situations. If you find yourself without one, the other option is to call a company like Safelite to come out and repair it wherever you are.

Cut back on the A/C

Running your vehicle’s air conditioner uses extra gas which means more frequent fill-ups. On the days when it isn’t too terribly hot, consider rolling your windows down and enjoying the warm breeze. Doing this will increase your MPG and decrease your spending.

Stay on top of vehicle maintenance

This is a big one. Keeping up with oil changes and other preventive maintenance is a game-changer when it comes to your auto repair bills. During a maintenance appointment, your mechanic will be able to inspect your vehicle to locate and repair any minor issues before they turn in to costly repairs.

When you choose York Tire & Auto Services for your vehicle maintenance and repairs, you can always trust that you are leaving your car in the hands of the top local experts. Call us today to schedule your next appointment.
