Fuel Saving Tip: Gas Caps From Here To Sussex

This fuel saving tip is so simple, no one from here to Sussex will believe it. It has to do with your gas cap.

The first thing is to make sure it’s screwed on tight. If it’s loose, gas vapor will be constantly leaking out; wasted gas.

A worn gas cap can have the same effect. If you constantly smell gas when you walk by your tank, you might need a new gas cap.

So, twist your cap until it clicks three times – that means it’s on tight. Have your Sussex area service advisor at Nelsons Automotive of Pewaukee inspect the cap to see if it needs to be replaced.

See, I told you it was simple.
