You don’t have to buy a new, fuel-efficient car to get great fuel efficiency. No one wants to trade a fuel bill for a car payment, so take a look at our top 5 ways to save on fuel and you may just be able to pocket a little extra money at the end of the month.
1. Change Your Driving Style - If you’re the kind of person who enjoys the rush of hard acceleration, typically runs 10 mph over the speed limit and brakes abruptly, we’ve got bad news: you’re hurting your vehicle’s fuel economy, and your wallet, in a big way. Depending on the kind of vehicle you drive and just how extreme you are with the throttle and brake, tempering your driving style can up your vehicle’s fuel economy by more than 5 mpg. That’s a serious bump. Scaling back the speed by just 5 mph means you’ll also see an increase in fuel economy.
Your bumper covers are always in danger. Between other drivers, obstacles in the road, flash floods, or any other hazard you may encounter, at some point it’s likely your bumper covers will accrue some damage. At D & E Service Center in Andover, NJ, we can fix that.
Increasingly, technology in automobiles is becoming more sophisticated, and more and more systems have become reliant on electronic control modules to operate.

Whether you drive a Ford, Chevy, or Ram diesel pickup, it’s especially important that you always seek high-quality repair and maintenance from qualified professionals. At D & E Service Center in Andover, NJ, we specialize in diesel vehicles and the ins and outs of diesel servicing. There are plenty of shops out there that can replace a part or perform a job, but it’s important that the technicians doing the work know what they’re doing, why they’re doing it, and are doing it right.
Exhaust systems are one of the most neglected aspects of most vehicles. Exhaust pipes, catalytic converters, and mufflers are exposed to heat, emissions, and road damage. While your exhaust system is fairly simple and straightforward, these conditions mean it is inherently prone to rust and damage. As a result, this system is often one of the first systems you will have trouble with on your car.
If you drive a diesel vehicle, it’s because you know that quality matters. At D & E Service Center in Andover, NJ, we built our reputation on quality. We chose to work on quality products because it’s something that we ourselves believe in, and strive for daily.
