Smart Living car care tips from Silva Ford

Tip #1 Fuel Economy
Did you know it takes nearly 20 percent more fuel to accelerate fro a full stop than from 5 miles-per-hour? Take routes with synchronized signal lights. Every 5 miles-per-hour over 60 miles-per-hour is equal to paying an extra 20 center per gallon of gas! So pace yourself.

Tip #2 Winterize your vehicle
Our winter months through a lot at us each year -- fog, rain, frost, and hail. Be sure to winterize your vehicle. Check tire pressure, wiper blades, engine coolant, and brakes. It will not only protect the life of your vehicle, but it will keep you safe.

Tip #3 Plan ahead for traveling
When traveling this season, plan ahead. Consider the safest route and give yourself enough time to get to your destination so you don't feel the need to speed. Be prepared for emergencies. All drivers should prepare an emergency road kit and store it in the trunk of their vehicle.

Tip #4 Summerize your vehicle
With our Valley heat, it's important to summerize your ride. Make sure you have proper coolant, fresh oil and air filters, seasonal tire pressure, clean brakes, and a tune-up. All this will not only contribute to better fuel economy, but will also help keep you from sitting along side of the road with a breakdown.
