When you want a fuel-efficient vehicle, it’s crucial that your auto parts are in peak condition. According to our expert technicians at Centennial Toyota, these Toyota parts can help your fuel economy.
When your tires aren’t properly inflated or have uneven wear, they create excessive rolling resistance. This means your vehicle needs more power (and fuel) to drive. If your tires have excessive wear or don’t hold air, it’s important to replace them.
Your engine oil’s job is to keep your engine performing effectively. So, when it has become too old, your engine will struggle to perform as it should. A routine oil change can seriously help improve your fuel economy.
When your filter becomes worn or clogged, it restricts the air flowing into your engine. This also forces your engine to work harder than normal, meaning your vehicle consumes more fuel. On average, you’ll need to replace your air filter every 15,000 miles.
Mass Airflow Sensor
Your mass airflow sensor has a big impact on your gas mileage. It measures the air flowing into your engine to help regulate your transmission, fuel injection, and ignition system. When you have a faulty sensor, it can diminish your fuel efficiency and you should replace it.
Your spark plugs are an essential part of powering your vehicle. As they begin to wear down over time, they require more engine power to operate, which, of course, means a higher fuel consumption too. Typically, we recommend you replace your spark plugs around 80,000 to 100,000 miles (or sooner if they develop issues).
