Get Your Car Summer-Ready

Duxler Complete Auto Care offers tips on how to get your car summer-ready, and save money on gas!

With the summer road-tripping season at our feet, it's important to make sure your car is prepared to make that long journey. Duxler strives to educate their customers on maintenance procedures, such as checking tire pressure, refilling fluids, etc. There is no stupid question at Duxler - and they will gladly take the time to answer it for you, unlike others who get you in and out as fast as they can.

Routine procedures like these may sometimes seem small and unimportant, but can ultimately help your car maintain great gas mileage and help you to stay safe behind the wheel.

It's no secret that Chicago gas prices are at an all-time high. Duxler Auto Care is offering a service that can improve your gas mileage by up to 4 miles per gallon! Below is a firsthand account on the virtues of the “Throttle Body Fuel Injection Service” (TBFI):

"Well, last week the Yusim Family 1999 Lexus RX 300 with 118,000 miles had the TBFI service and we are now getting almost 4 more miles per gallon!  My husband, a.k.a. the Greatest Skeptic of All Time, was floored when on our drive to Hoffman Estates for a water polo game the MPG display showed 19.3 mpg, whereas it had been down to 15.5 mpg before the service! Wow, right?"

Why it works: Gunky deposits in your throttle body and fuel injectors can lead to increased emissions and reduced fuel economy. A multi-part fuel system cleaning will get rid of these deposits, helping you get a few extra miles out of each tank of fuel in the process. A fuel system cleaning generally consists of three stages. The first stage cleans and removes carbon deposits in the throttle body. The second stage is usually added directly to the fuel tank. This helps clean the rest of your fuel system, anything that fuel touches. It also cleans the insides of your fuel injectors. In combination, these two stages create a third stage, which cleans the fuel injector tips. There is usually one fuel injector for each cylinder in your vehicle’s engine, and it is very important that these are kept clean. A fuel injector that is even partially clogged can waste fuel and money.
