How to Improve Your Car’s Gas Mileage Here are some of the things you can do to ensure improved gas mileage for your car: Driving Habits Keep your car clean. Mud on the undercarriage can weigh a significant amount and slow you down. Consolidate your daily trips and errands. This will also save you the cost of restarting your engine, which uses a lot of gas. Avoid air conditioning when possible.

Help! My Honda’s Check Engine Light Is On!

There is always a certain sense of dread that overcomes one when the check engine light (or malfunction indicator light or service engine soon) comes on. That is sometimes followed by confusion and denial after all your Honda seems to be running just fine. That feeling can be exacerbated if, after driving for a while the light goes off only to come back on again later. Honda’s are some of the most reliable cars in the world so the assumption is that whatever is wrong must be something serious. What Your Check Engine Light Means Your check engine light is design to monitor and turn on when it detects a fault with your Honda’s emissions system. While the light says “check engine” the reality is that it could be 100 different things that are triggering the fault causing the light to go on. Some of these issues are serious, others are not so serious. One of the most common “not so serious” causes of a check engine light is a loose gas cap. If you fill ... read more
