Fuel Saving Tip: Fuel System Cleaning Near Frankfort, Illinois
Posted in Fuel System on February 12, 2018
A lot of fuel is wasted in the Frankfort area by dirty fuel delivery systems in vehicles.
Let's start at the tank. The gas tank gathers dirt, rust and sediment over the years. That's why there's a fuel filter to clean the fuel after it leaves the tank. A dirty filter will rob the engine of the clean gas it needs to run efficiently.
The fuel intake components get coated with gum and varnish over time. This results in fuel being delivered inefficiently and some of that gunk getting into the engine. A fuel system service at Tuffy Tire & Auto Service Frankfort will leave your intake components as clean as a whistle.
The big fuel thief is dirty fuel injectors. They deliver fuel to the engine at a specified pressure and in a particular spray pattern. When they're clogged, the fuel doesn't get atomized the way it's supposed to and doesn't get burned as efficiently.
See your owner's manual or ask your Frankfort service advisor at Tuffy Tire & Auto Service Frankfort when a fuel system cleaning is recommended.
