Deep Clean Your Fuel System at Tuffy Clinton Township

April 29, 2018

Having trouble with your fuel system? Bring your vehicle into Tuffy Clinton Township for a check up.

In today's Tuffy Clinton Township auto post, we're talking about fuel system cleaning. The first thing to know is how important it is to have a clean fuel system. Clinton Township residents need fuel to go, and the cleaner the fuel system, the more efficiently the fuel will burn. That means more power and better mileage .

A clean fuel system saves money for Clinton Township drivers at Michigan gas stations. We guess you could say it all starts and ends at the pump. One of the most important things Clinton Township residents can do to keep their vehicle fuel system clean is to buy good quality gas. Major brands have detergents that keep gum and varnish from rapidly building up in the fuel system.

So buying cheaper gas in Michigan can actually be more expensive for Clinton Township drivers in the long run. Now, most cars on Michigan roads are more than five or six years old. That means they've had time for some dirt and rust to start accumulating in the fuel tank. This junk needs to be filtered out of the fuel before it hits your vehicle engine. That's the fuel filter's job.

When the fuel filter is clogged, the dirty fuel will bypass the filter and go on up to the engine where it can clog fuel injectors and get into the cylinders. So Clinton Township residents should have their fuel filter changed when recommended. Check your owner's manual or ask your friendly and knowledgeable Tuffy Clinton Township service advisor if your fuel filter is due for replacement.
