Make the pinch at the pump less painful and enjoy driving

(ARA) — With the price of $4 a gallon for regular gasoline becoming a common occurrence across America, relief is miles away. The U.S. Energy Information Administration is predicting that the national average price for a gallon during the summer driving season will rise to $3.81, up $1.05 from last year’s $2.76 price tag. Americans’ wallets are hurting. Even with tighter budgets, millions of drivers are hitting the roads for a summer road trip with a desire to make every dollar count. For motorists, now is the time to make sure their vehicle performs at full strength, to save at the pump. Here’s a simple checklist of tips motorists should perform to help keep their vehicles running safer, longer and more cost-effectively during the warm summer months: * Check that tread: Motorists must take a few minutes to inspect their tires, or to visit a local tire and service outlet for a check-up. The price of gasoline provides even more incentive to check tire conditions and air pressure before heading off on summer trips. Advances in tire technology are helping deliver a new generation of moderately priced tires that offer the all-season traction and long tread wear consumers have come to expect, but with enhanced rolling resistance to help save money on gas. For example, Goodyear’s Assurance Fuel Max tires, now available for passenger cars, SUVs and CUVs, fit 80 percent of consumer vehicles and help save up to 2,600 miles worth of gas over the life of a set of tires. How do the tires help save gas? Advanced polymers reduce friction as the tires roll, reducing energy loss, which results in improved fuel efficiency ... and that 2,600 miles translates into driving from New York City to the Las Vegas Strip for free. Driving experts across the country have even chosen Fuel Max to help break fuel economy world records. Reigning fuel efficiency champs, Helen and John Taylor, chose Fuel Max to help shatter the 48 Contiguous U.S. States Fuel Economy Guinness World Record, setting it at a whopping 67.9 mpg over 9,505 miles. * Don’t overload: Vehicle overloading can occur when trying to jam too many extra items for an extended vacation. Check the owner’s manual for the maximum recommended load details. An extra 100 pounds in the trunk reduces a typical car’s fuel economy by 1 to 2 percent. * Watch for inflation: Proper tire inflation is essential for increased automotive safety, optimum driving performance and significant cost savings, including better fuel mileage. Tires should be inflated to the vehicle manufacturer recommendations printed on the vehicle door placard or in the glove box and should be checked monthly. Over-inflation can lead to premature or irregular tire wear and under-inflation reduces a vehicle’s fuel efficiency by an average of 3.3 percent. Easy-to-find maintenance advice is offered at www.goodyear.com. * Get tuned in: Before taking that long trip, visit a trusted automotive outlet and make sure your car is properly tuned. Regular vehicle maintenance can improve gas mileage by an average of 4.1 percent, according to the U.S. Department of Energy. * Wear a cap: Vehicle gas caps must be tight and undamaged. Approximately 17 percent of the vehicles on U.S. highways have either misused or missing gas caps, causing millions of gallons of gas to vaporize into the atmosphere. * Be smooth: Aggressive driving wastes gas and can reduce your fuel mileage by 33 percent on the highway and 5 percent in the city. Observe the speed limit. * Get up in the gears: The higher the gear you drive in, the lower your engine speed is, which can improve fuel efficiency. So change up a gear whenever you can. This can dramatically impact fuel efficiency. * Cruisin’ U.S.A.: Using cruise control on the highway helps you maintain a constant speed and, in most cases, will prevent stressful engine acceleration.

Help keep your car from early retirement Easy tips to help you get the most out of your vehicle (ARA) — Many Americans are trying to get the full value out of their vehicle, as evidenced by the recent findings that the average age of a vehicle on the road has reached over 10 years old, according to an R.L. Polk & Co. study. In order to make sure that their vehicles remain durable, it is important that motorists look for ways to help keep their vehicles running smoothly, longer. “The engine in a vehicle is much like the heart in our bodies: In order for the heart to be fit and strong, we need to take care of it,” says Jeff Hsu, technology manager for the Quaker State brand, who wants to help drivers take the steps that can help extend the life of their vehicles. “Proper and regular maintenance of a vehicle can help save money on repairs down the road, especially for vehicles that have reached milestones in age and mileage.” There are many ways to help increase your vehicle’s longevity and keep your peace of mind intact. Here are a few tips to help you get the most out of one of your largest investments. Make it your routine Just as regular check-ups with your doctor are important for your own health, heeding regularly scheduled maintenance intervals as determined by the vehicle manufacturer is also an essential step to help keep your vehicle healthy. Taking your vehicle in and having it regularly maintained helps to make sure your vehicle has what it needs to keep it running. Of the overall maintenance regimen, one of the most frequently missed maintenance tasks is the oil change. By chang-

ing your oil as recommended by the vehicle manufacturer, you can help maintain the performance of your engine. Regular maintenance and recommended intervals are typically outlined in a vehicle’s owner’s manual. Take it easy To make sure your vehicle can stand the course of time, it is important to avoid unnecessary strain on the engine. “A vehicle that has been sitting for an extended period of time will have next to no oil left on the moving parts of the engine, as it has accumulated in the oil pan,” says Hsu. “Allowing your engine to warm up by easing into acceleration will help the oil flow quicker and decrease the amount of wear and friction-related damage that may occur.” Maybe even more important than taking it easy on startup is making sure to not overexert your vehicle. Constant, high RPMs, short braking, high-speed driving and other severe types of driving can lead to accelerated engine and transmission wear and potentially more substantial issues. Keep it clean “When trying to keep a vehicle running and to extend its life, it is important to not overlook the body of the vehicle,” says Hsu. Consumers’ vehicles likely take a beating throughout the year with the months of harsh winter conditions and corrosive elements. High temperatures, bird droppings, tree sap and UV rays in the warmer months can also cause damage to the interior and exterior of a vehicle. Keeping vehicles clean can help protect them from the chemicals and dirt that may attack the car’s finish and undercarriage. Make sure it’s covered Having your vehicle covered for any issues that may arise is important, and extended warranty

programs are becoming more and more prevalent. Last year alone, Americans bought 250 million extended warranties, according to the Service Contract Industry Council. There are also different types of aftermarket warranties available to consumers through the products they use; but there is only one program that offers motorists a full warranty and the possibility to receive a cash reward. Quaker State has recently updated one of the longest running, easiest to use and most comprehensive motor oil warranties available to motorists, the Quaker State Lubrication Limited Warranty. The Quaker State Lubrication Limited Warranty, which is free to qualifying consumers who use Quaker State products, protects 15 engine parts from lubri-

cant-related failure and provides motorists’ vehicles with coverage for up to 10 years or 300,000 miles, whichever comes first. In addition, if your vehicle does end up making it to the 300,000mile marker under the Quaker State Lubrication Limited Warranty program, you can receive the cash value of your vehicle as part of the Quaker State Cash Back Bonus; a program designed to not only reward those motorists who view their vehicle’s mileage as a badge of honor but also incentivizes them to keep their high-mileage vehicles and maintain them. Following these simple tips can help promote a long life for your vehicle. For more information about the limited warranty program, visit www.quakerstate.com.

Keep your engine cool when temps heat up (ARA) — You’ve waited so long for summer vacation, and now you’re ready for that family getaway or road trip. Whether you’re cruising down the open road or taking the kids to summer camp, the last thing you want is a vehicle problem that leaves you stranded on the side of the road. Cooling system issues are the leading cause of roadside breakdowns, according to the U.S. Department of Transportation. To make matters worse, an estimated 23 million people are operating their vehicles with the wrong kind of coolant. During the hot months of summer, it’s just as important to hydrate your car as it is your body. Using the wrong coolant for your car could result in radiator and pump damage. Not sure which coolant is right for your car? Check the label under your hood or your owner’s manual. If you are buying coolant for your vehicle, make sure to read the label to confirm the product is made for your vehicle’s make and model. An excellent method of preventative maintenance for your cooling system is to have it

flushed. Refer to your owner’s manual for recommendations. The frequency of how many times a year you have it done depends on the vehicle you drive and the conditions you drive it in. If you’re in a state that has sweltering summers, you may need to change your coolant twice a year or just before summer and winter. If your weather is moderate, an annual cooling system flush will be sufficient. Other checks are simple. Make sure your hoses are attached properly and that they do not have leaks and are not cracked or brittle. Look for signs of corrosion on your radiator and check to see if the radiator cap fits tightly. Are the coolant levels correct? Is your coolant clean and free of oil and sediment? Incorrect coolant levels and dirty coolant could also lead to your engine overheating. If you’re just running water through your radiator, consider using an anti-freeze. It may seem a strange product to use during the heat of summer, but antifreeze contains corrosion inhibitors that have a higher boiling point than water. When having your cooling system flushed, ask the mechanic to check the ther-

mostat. If for some reason your thermostat is stuck, an incorrect reading could lead to your engine overheating. Another way to prevent your engine from overheating is to use a radiator coolant additive like Royal Purple’s Purple Ice. Purple Ice is a high-performance, synthetic radiator coolant additive that reduces engine heat in gasoline or diesel engines by optimizing coolant flow and lubricating water pump seals. “Purple Ice not only helped cool my engine, but it also made a noticeable improvement in its daily performance,” says Leo Nelson of Beaumont, Texas. Purple Ice also reduces engine heat in vehicles that are towing campers and boats. Although gas prices at the pump are higher than last summer, Americans are still relying on their cars to travel to their destinations whether it is for work or vacation. Taking the time to make sure your car is ready for the summer drive will keep you on the road instead of stuck on the side of it.
