17 ways to increase your Fuel Economy from Nissan of LaGrange

Some simple tips can help increase your fuel economy. Even slight
increases in fuel economy can provide significant savings over time.

  1.  Accelerate slowly and smoothly. Maintain cruising speeds with
    a constant accelerator position.
  2.  Drive at moderate speeds on the highway. Driving at high speed
    lowers fuel economy.
  3.  Avoid unnecessary stopping and braking. Maintain a safe distance
    behind other vehicles.
  4.  Use a proper gear range which suits road conditions. On level
    roads, shift into high gear as soon as possible.
  5. Avoid unnecessary engine idling.
  6.  Keep your engine tuned up.
  7.  Follow the recommended periodic maintenance schedule.
  8.  Keep the tires inflated to the correct pressure. Low tire pressure
    increases tire wear and lowers fuel economy.
  9.  Keep the wheels in correct alignment. Improper alignment
    increases tire wear and lowers fuel economy.
  10. Use the air conditioner only when necessary. Air conditioner
    operation lowers fuel economy.
  11.  Use your vehicle’s Eco mode setting (if equipped).
  12.  Maintain speed when climbing hills, instead of trying to accelerate.
  13.  Remove excess cargo from your vehicle, especially heavy items.
  14.  Use cruise control on the highway.
  15.  Use the Nissan-recommended grade of motor oil.
  16.  Combine short errands or trips.
  17.  Carry cargo in the trunk or cargo area whenever possible,

How Often Should the Brake Fluid be Replaced in My Nissan?

Nissan recommends replacing your brake fluid every 20,000 miles under normal operating conditions. This service is similar to a blood transfusion as the old brake fluid is removed and replaced with new Nissan Brake Fluid.

According to our Nissan factory-trained technicians there are two main reasons to replace the fluid.

Brake fluid can break down just like any other automotive fluid and needs to be periodically replaced to maintain effectiveness.

Brake fluid is among the worst automotive fluid in attracting moisture. Moisture in your brake lines can result in corrosion occuring in the brake system that can lead to expensive repairs down the road. Also, moisture (water) in the brake lines can reduce the effectiveness of your Nissan’s braking system when stopping, especially under extreme conditions.

Stop by Nissan of LaGrange today and let us replace your brake fluid with Nissan Genuine Brake Fluid. You’ll also get the experience and knowledge of factory-trained Nissan technicians. You can even become a member of our Nissan of LaGrange Family Rewards Program and get 5% of the cost of the brake service to spend on future service needs.

4 Most Common Tire Wear Problems

Today’s Nissan cars, trucks, and SUVs are fitted with advanced safety systems. Yet the four small contact points of rubber on the road remain among the most important safety features — and are perhaps the easiest to overlook. Tires also affect vehicle performance, ride comfort, and fuel economy.

Tires should be checked for inflation pressure and tread wear periodically. A tire with incorrect pressure or worn tread has diminished road-holding capability and can be a hazard. Certain types of tread wear also can indicate serious vehicle problems that should be corrected immediately.

We asked our Nissan Factory Technicians what causes most tire wear issues. The following  are the four more common problems and their tread wear warning signals.

Over/Under Inflation

An over-inflated tire prevents the sidewalls from flexing, resulting in rapid wear at the center of the tread. An under-inflated tire allows the sidewalls to flex excessively, resulting in rapid wear at the edges of the tread. This issue is usually corrected by inflating the tires to the proper tire pressure. If you drive with the incorrect pressure too long you may need to replace the tires much earlier than you planned.

Excessive Toe-In or Toe-Out

Excessive toe-in or toe-out causes a tire to be dragged at a slight angle as it rolls forward. This will wear the entire tread to one side, as well as diminish performance and fuel economy. Excessive toe-in or toe-out is usually corrected by adjusting the steering or suspension system with an alignment

Excessive Camber

Excessive positive or negative camber will wear a tire’s tread more rapidly on one side or the other. Excessive camber is usually corrected by adjusting the suspension system with an alignment.

Unbalanced Wheels

When a wheel is not properly balanced, the driver will experience vibrations in the vehicle while driving. This occurs when the wheel and tire is heavier on one side than the other. As the wheel spins, the heavy side will cause it to bounce. In extreme cases the tire will actually lose contact with the pavement as it bounces up and down. Unbalanced wheels can usually be corrected by having them balanced and then road tested for driving comfort.
