Fuel economy isn't far from the minds of our Albertville drivers and we hear these questions daily such as: Why can certain cars zip along at close to 40 mpg while others are lucky to get anywhere near 20? As it turns out, there are as many factors that go into how well your ride does at the pumps! Here are the 10 factors that have the greatest impact on fuel consumption that we would like to share with you. 

dash warning lights

Whether you drive a Powerstroke, Cummins, or Duramax diesel, your truck is a complex piece of equipment. Emissions systems, fuel systems, and systems you’ve probably never heard of all work together to keep your truck going strong. Sometimes, however, a warning light will pop up on your dash, and leave you wondering what’s going on. From ABS to Check Engine Lights, Brad Bearden Automotive in Albertville, AL has you covered.

tires

However, if you take care to properly maintain your vehicle and your tires, they will last much, much longer.
