Volvo Service Tips Just For Your Volvo!
Servicing Your Volvo
- Have the spark plugs on your Volvo replaced at the prescribed interval. This way, the air and fuel mixture will be burn more completely.
- Reduce friction. Use only high-quality or synthetic motor oil in your Volvo.
- Check your oil! Low oil makes your Volvo’s engine work harder.
- Change your filters. Dirty filters on your Volvo can sometimes increase the amount of fuel your vehicle is using by 10 percent.
- Keep the tires on your Volvo properly inflated and aligned.
- Get regular engine tune-ups and maintenance checks on your Volvo. Worn spark plugs or transmission problems can also contribute to poor gas mileage.
- Consolidate your daily trips and errands. This will also save you the cost of restarting the engine on your Volvo, which uses a lot of gas.
- Avoid air conditioning when possible. When driving at higher speeds, having the windows open in your Volvo also creates drag.
- Don’t throttle the gas or brake! Sudden starts or stops use more gas than gradual changes of speed.
- Don’t idle for too long. Turn your Volvo off and limit car warm-ups in winter
- Clear out the trunk. More weight, more drag.
- Avoid high speeds. We know this is almost impossible to resist but you can improve your gas mileage about 15 percent by driving at 55 mph rather than 65 mph.
