In this article, we will provide you with important things to consider which will make the process of selling your vehicle before summer an easy one to make.

Gas Prices Will Go Up This Summer

With gas prices slowly going up to $3.00/gallon across Oregon, it’s likely that we could see the price of gas reach $4.00/gallon or more by the summer months.

Gas prices always go up anyway during the summer so if you’re thinking about junking your vehicle you should do it now since getting rid of your gas guzzler could potentially save you hundreds of dollars in fuel costs this summer.

Drive A Reliable Vehicle For Your Summer Road Trip

If you’re planning on taking a road trip this summer, you should recycle your old car, truck or van now and get a new vehicle so you can enjoy your road trip in a reliable vehicle that won’t break down on you.

Avoid Expensive Repairs

Did your mechanic tell you that your vehicle is in need of an overhaul or major repair? If so, why put off the inventible? Recycle your junk car now and save hundreds of dollars in repair costs and avoid getting gouged by mechanics who often raise their prices during the summer.

Don’t Stay Attached To Your Junk Car

With gas prices slowly reaching $3.00/gallon again, more drivers are interested in doing everything that they can to save money on gas. This is why in this article we will share with you the best things you can do to save money on gas in 2018.

Get A Tune Up

When was the last time that you had your vehicle tuned up? If your answer to this question is “I can’t remember” then you should get your vehicle tuned up soon so you can save money on gas.

Another handy thing you should do to save money on gas is to get an oil change because oil that’s not been changed every 3000 miles becomes “sludge” and makes it harder for an engine to function.

Get New Tires

Are you driving around on bald tires? If so, don’t hesitate to get those tires replaced because bald tires do affect your gas mileage and they also could prove to be potentially hazardous to your health since lack of tread on your tires can lead to a blowout and make it harder for you to stop your vehicle.

Replace Your Fuel Filter

Besides getting a tune-up, oil change, and new tires, you should also replace your vehicles fuel filter as well because having a new fuel filter will definitely lead to better fuel economy and vehicle performance.

Drive Slower

After taking the time to get your vehicle tuned up and running in peak condition you should next focus on improving your driving habits like driving slower and braking slower as well since this will lead to less gas consumption.

Change When You Buy Gas

Last of all, but most important, another handy thing you can do to save money on gas is to buy gas later in the day or earlier in the morning since this will help you to avoid getting “gouged” at the pump and ensure that you’re able to buy gas for the best price possible.
