Fuel Saving Tip: Auto Myths Around Austin

August 18, 2019



With high fuel prices in Austin, Texas, comes lots of gas saving advice. Some of it, like what you hear on  drive is great.  When you get one of those e-mails that's going around telling you how to save gas, try to think it through.

Does it really make sense? Does it defy the laws of physics?

Do some research on the internet or ask your Austin, Texas, service advisor at Tuffy Tire & Auto Service Center Austin.

There aren't any magic pills you can drop in your gas tank, and the government hasn't suppressed a device you can clamp on your fuel line to make your vehicle run on air. Not even in Austin!
