Auto Advice For Calgary Consumers

Here are some tips to make your engine as efficient as possible.
Don't Overload the Roof

At highway speeds, up to 50% of engine power is used to overcome aerodynamic drag. Things like bike racks, cargo boxes, and loaded roof rails can significantly increase air resistance. You can limit this issue if you store items inside your vehicle. 

Slow Down

The faster you go, the less efficient your car gets. Acceleration can hurt fuel economy, and hard braking can waste the energy you spent getting up to speed. Using cruise control on the highway can help minimize gas use. 

Perform Regular Maintenance

Dirty spark plugs, blocked air filters, and contaminated motor oil can all hurt fuel economy. Follow your vehicle's maintenance schedule, and keep appointments at your service centre. These regular tune-ups can also increase the lifespan of your auto.

A car with a longer wheelbase has extra interior space. This connection might seem obvious, but the vehicle may also display less evident traits. For example, it will be more stable and offer a smoother ride. This is why SUVs and luxury cars often have lengthier dimensions. 

On the other hand, autos with shorter wheelbases offer better handling. For this reason, many sports cars have less distance between their front and back tires. 

Towing vehicles, such as pickup trucks like the Ram 1500, benefit from very long wheelbases because it makes it harder for them to lose control when pulling heavy loads. 

Whether you are interested in sports cars with shorter wheelbase measurements or lengthier sedans or trucks, contact our Calgary dealership today to inquire about our current offerings.
