Fuel Saving Tip: Fuel System Cleaning Near Sturgis, Michigan
Posted in Fuel System on April 19, 2020
A lot of fuel is wasted in the Sturgis area by dirty fuel delivery systems in vehicles.
Let's start at the tank. The gas tank gathers dirt, rust and sediment over the years. That's why there's a fuel filter to clean the fuel after it leaves the tank. A dirty filter will rob the engine of the clean gas it needs to run efficiently.
The fuel intake components get coated with gum and varnish over time. This results in fuel being delivered inefficiently and some of that gunk getting into the engine. A fuel system service at Tuffy Sturgis will leave your intake components as clean as a whistle.
The big fuel thief is dirty fuel injectors. They deliver fuel to the engine at a specified pressure and in a particular spray pattern. When they're clogged, the fuel doesn't get atomized the way it's supposed to and doesn't get burned as efficiently.
See your owner's manual or ask your Sturgis service advisor at Tuffy Sturgis when a fuel system cleaning is recommended.
