A Guide to Save Money on Gas: Beware of Myths

Be wary of which offer quick and easy ways to save fuel

To Save Money On Gas, Do Your Research

There’s a lot of auto advice in Nevada right now on how to save money on gas. Some of it is good advice. Some of it isn’t. Some of it is the 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. Reno drivers can usually find out in only minutes whether that claim is questionable or not.

Chances are other Reno drivers have already tried what you’re considering. If you find evidence that others report a scam, 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 harm your vehicle. The last thing you need is a bunch more sediment or unknown, dissolved additives in your fuel.

There are proven, sensible ways that you can maintain good gas mileage, however. Proper car care and consistent preventive maintenance are the keys to save money on gas. An oil change at Wayne’s Automotive Center in Sparks 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 proven advice.

So be smart. Listen to advice from qualified Wayne’s Automotive Center professionals, and stay away from unverified “magic” and conspiracy theories. Your wallet—and your vehicle—will thank you in the end.
