Fast Action Body Repair, Jamaica New York


Truck Care tips

Fast Action Truck Repair is happy to help you with all of your truck repair and maintenance services- but we also know that it isn’t convenient to have your truck in the shop. You need your truck to get through your busy day! And with diesel prices constantly changing, the last thing you need is an extra expense.

That’s why our experienced service technicians have come up with some truck care tips to help improve your diesel mileage, save money at the pump, and keep your truck running smoothly. Fast Action Truck Repair will always be there for you when you need our truck repair or maintenance services, but it’s important for you to take care of your commercial vehicle.

Truck Driving Habits

  • Keep your truck clean.

  • Mud on the undercarriage can weight a significant amount and slow you down.

  • Consolidate your daily trips and errands. This will also save you the cost of restarting your diesel engine, which uses a lot of diesel.

  • Avoid air conditioning when possible. However, when driving at higher speeds, having your windows open also creates drag.

  • Don’t throttle the diesel or brake pedal!

  • Sudden starts or stops use more diesel than gradual changes in speed.

  • Don’t idle for too long. Turn off the engine if you anticipate a lengthy wait.

  • Limit truck warm-ups in winter.

  • Avoid high speeds. We know this is almost impossible to resist but you can improve your diesel mileage by up to 15 percent driving at 55 mph rather than 65 mph.

  • Use overdrive. If your truck is equipped with overdrive gearing use it as soon as your speed is high enough.

  • Use cruise control. Maintaining a constant speed is ideal for improving your diesel mileage.

Servicing Your Commercial Vehicle

  • Clean your diesel fuel injectors in your engine regularly. This way, the air and fuel mixture will burn cleaner and more efficiently.

  • Improve the intake/output system. By allowing diesel to get in and exhaust to get out of your vehicle you will improve the vehicle’s overall performance and diesel mileage.

  • Reduce friction. Use high-quality or synthetic motor oil.

  • Check your oil! Low oil makes your engine work harder.

  • Change your filters. Dirty truck filters can sometimes increase the amount of fuel your vehicle uses by as much as 10 percent.

  • Keep your truck tires properly inflated and aligned. Check regularly to ensure your truck tires are fully inflated and your alignment is good.

  • Get regular diesel engine maintenance checks. A lot can go wrong with a truck.

  • Damaged transmission problems can also contribute to poor diesel mileage.
