Everyone knows when you take a trip, you want to make sure your vehicle is up and running. Not just running, but running well! So, I was really excited when Jiffy Lube agreed to participate in our 30th Anniversary in Branson Event! My husband takes care of the vehicles on a regular basis. He checks tires, fluids, lights, and brakes, before any trip. So, as we left for Branson he mentioned we would need an oil and lube before our trip was over. In steps Jiffy Lube. We really like to use Jiffy Lube on a regular basis because it is a name you can trust.
So, as we prepared to head back to children and home, we stopped in at a Jiffy Lube to have the oil and lube taken care of. Jiffy Lube had our vehicle in and out within about 15-20 minutes. Now, I realize sometimes you can run into a longer wait, but they were very efficient. And of course when they finish up they let you know if you have any other problems they noticed. We need to replace a wiper blade. The employee who waited on us was very polite and actually walked out to our vehicle as we left. Not just a thank you, here's your keys, next please!
Below I am going to share some tips from Jiffy Lube:
Fuel Efficiency Tips from Jiffy Lube for a Worry-Free Summer Road Trip Experience
ü Oil Grade: Using the recommended grade of oil for your vehicle can help save money. According to the Federal Government, using your vehicle manufacturer’s recommended oil grade (found in your owner’s manual) can improve gas mileage 1 to 2%**.
ü Tire Pressure: Improve your gas mileage by up to 3.3% by maintaining the proper tire pressure**. Tire pressure is vehicle-specific and typically found on a decal in the door jamb or in the owner’s manual. Check it regularly to ensure the correct levels and don’t forget your spare!
ü Observe the Speed Limit: Gas mileage usually decreases rapidly at speeds above 50 mph. It pays to obey the law: every 5 mph over 50 mph can mean paying an extra $0.24 per gallon for gas**.
ü Avoid Aggressive Driving: Speeding, rapid acceleration and braking can lower your gas mileage by 33% at highway speeds and by 5% when driving around town**. Sensible driving isn’t just safe, it’ll also help you save.
ü Use Cruise Control & Overdrive Gears: Using both for highway trips can help save gas, and steer you toward greater savings.
ü Lighten Your Load: Keep it simple and pack light to maximize gas savings. Extra weight means more strain on your vehicle and more fuel burn: vehicle drag can decrease your vehicle’s fuel efficiency by 2%**.
**According to the Federal Government. Gas-saving percentages are from the Department of Energy http://www.fueleconomy.gov. Drivers can also visit www.JiffyLube.com for more information.
