With fuel prices skyrocketing, who can afford to waste fuel?
Many vehicle owners are spending more than they need on petrol or diesel because their vehicle’s engine is not running efficiently.
A fuel efficiency and emissions test can help tell you if your vehicle is running as efficiently as possible and identify potential savings. With the current price of fuel, can you afford to hope that your vehicle is operating at maximum efficiency or would you rather be sure of it?
In as little as ten minutes, we can test and analyse your vehicle's exhaust emissions and let you know how your vehicle is performing.
Engines that are using excessive amounts of fuel are also in danger of wearing out prematurely and requiring costly repairs. This happens because the excess fuel that is not used during the combustion process clings to the cylinder walls and “washes” the lubricating oil off the cylinder. This in turn increases friction and subsequently wears out the engine ahead of time. In extreme cases this can take place in just a few thousand kilometres.
You can easily find out whether your vehicle is running efficiently by getting a fuel efficiency and emissions test.
Even if you are not worried about oil supplies, air pollution or global warming, you should have your vehicle’s exhaust emissions tested. If your car is producing high emissions it is costing you money. It’s that simple.
Petrol engines producing high levels of hydrocarbons and carbon monoxide, or diesel engines producing large quantities of small particles of soot, are wasting fuel and wearing themselves out prematurely. Each week these vehicles take a few more of their owners precious dollars and one day they are likely to need expensive repairs.
When an engine is producing high levels of emissions, its fuel economy can drop by up to 25%. An emissions test is a simple procedure that usually takes less than 15 minutes to complete and costs less than a Warrant of Fitness inspection. It’s a good thing to do when you have your vehicle serviced.
You don’t have to be a ‘Greenie’ to be worried about vehicle emissions. You just have to want to save money.
