Automotive engineers know a few things that you don't 1
  • Frequent oil changes are unnecessary. Oil change intervals of 25,000 miles are sufficient.
  • New cars need no additives- ever.
  • Regular unleaded fuel is adequate for all but the highest performance cars- and even then regular unleaded fuel will do in normal driving.
  • Brake fluid is hygroscopic- so if it isn’t changed the brake system in a car will be the first thing to go bad.
  • Tire pressure is critical to the comfort of the ride, handling and safety. Always use the tire pressure that is recommended in the owner’s manual- even if it is different than the pressure stamped on the tire.
  • Modifications to cars are useless. If some device was necessary-say to get you 60 miles per gallon of gas- it would have been put on at the factory.
