While you’re stuck in traffic your mileage doesn’t increase, but your engine is still running,
CAUSING ADDITIONAL WEAR AND TEAR.
If you drive in congested conditions regularly:
- Your engine actually travels twice the distance your car does
- You spend the equivalent of an extra 17 full days on the road over a working year* – in low-speed, stop-start traffic that is murder on your engine.
By changing your oil, air and fuel filters regularly between services, you dramatically improve fuel efficiency and slow engine wear and tear.
