The Fuel System

The fuel system is comprised of naturally fuel (gas) plus the tank, pump, filters, hoses, injectors or carburetor. A lot of gas is wasted by Bedford PA vehicles with dirty fuel systems. Let’s start at the tank. The gas tank gathers tiny amounts of dirt, rust and sediment over the years of driving. That’s why there’s a fuel filter to clean the fuel after it leaves the tank. A dirty filter will rob the engine of the clean gas it needs to run efficiently.

What Causes Loss of Fuel Efficiency ?

The fuel system intake components get coated with gum and varnish over time. This results in fuel being delivered inefficiently and some of that gunk getting into the engine. To help correct this problem our ASE Master Certified mechanics can perform a fuel system service that will leave your internal fuel components clean as a whistle.

The big fuel thief is dirty fuel injectors. They deliver fuel to the engine at a specified pressure and in a particular spray pattern. When they’re clogged, the fuel doesn’t get atomized the way it’s supposed to and doesn’t get burned as efficiently.

Exhaust Components Working Together

Part of the gas delivery is actually part of the exhaust system. These work in concert to make the car burn all the fuel in the system. The gas system failure could actually be an exhaust component like the EGR valve, O2 Sensor, Catalytic Converter, carbon buildup and more.

We recommend a good review of your gas components ever 30,000 miles or if you see a check engine light coming on. Low efficiency due to poor gas, EPA inclusion of corn by-products into the mix plus the imbalance of summer and winter gasoline can really take a toll on your wallet. proper upkeep and preventative maintenance can truly help keep gas in your talk, and cash in your wallet.
