Gas prices are up. Does that mean taking a road trip has become too expensive to consider? The short answer is “no,” but let’s walk through why that’s the case. City driving and highway driving are not equivalent. Most vehicles get better mileage on the highway than in the city, where speeds are lower, the RPMs are higher and you are more likely to spend time idling. The difference is likely to be at least 5 mpg.
Having a Tunex mechanic check out the condition of a vehicle you want to buy or sell is a smart move.
If you are selling, you may not realize the car needs expensive work to be done (especially since Utah no longer requires annual safety inspections for most cars). Even if the car is in great shape, though, it’s one thing to say there’s no work needed. It’s another to back up your claim with an actual report from an engine expert.
Tunex is a great place to go for emissions and safety testing. Our prices are fair, and we would love to help you. Even though the State of Utah hasn’t required general safety testing since Jan. 1, 2018, there’s no law saying you can’t hire someone to check your car regularly.
Part of taking care of your car involves keeping tire pressure within the correct range to prevent an increased risk for flat tires, premature wear and poor vehicle performance. The wrong pressure wears out your tires too fast. Also, your vehicle will be less safe and harder to drive.
