Do Fuel Additives Work?

With gas prices on the rise, getting the most miles out of a gallon of gasoline is high on the priority list of drivers. With each mile we drive and use gasoline in our combustion engines, however, dirt and grime can build up and that can bring down your miles per gallon. The auto service centers at Pine Belt Chevrolet, Pine Belt Subaru and Pine Belt Chrysler-Jeep are top notch in Lakewood, NJ and we want to help answer the question, “do fuel additives improve your miles per gallon?”

Fuel Additives

Some gasolines have fuel additives already in them with the aim of improving the gasoline’s efficiency. These additives are shown in the octane rating on the pump. These higher octane gasolines run hotter or work to lubricate the engine. Both result in your engine running better.

What About the Ones You Buy?

Additives you purchase at the gas station or auto parts stores say they will scrub your engine and eliminate the dirt and grime, thus boosting your fuel efficiency back to the level when your vehicle was new. Extensive testing of fuel additives have shown that they do not increase your miles per gallon but they may have other benefits. A fuel injector on a vehicle is an expensive part to replace. Fuel additives will clean out the fuel injector and extend its life. A very important benefit.

Let Us Extend the Life of Your Car

The best thing you can do to maximize the life of your vehicle and improve your gas mileage is to let the auto service centers at Pine Belt Chevrolet, Pine Belt Subaru and Pine Belt Chrysler-Jeep perform regular maintenance. Our dealerships are the greatest dealerships in NJ and number one of Lakewood car dealers. We want your vehicle to be on the road for as long as you own it. Find out how you can make an appointment to service your vehicle on our websites, www.pinebeltchevrolet.com, www.pinebeltsubaru.com, www.pinebeltchryslerjeep.com.

A Car to Love – 2017 Chevrolet Malibu

The 2017 Chevrolet Malibu is so thoughtfully engineered, it is a car to love, not just like. You can find the 2017 Chevrolet Malibu at Pine Belt Chevrolet, your number 1 Chevy dealer in NJ.

Impressive Safety

The 2017 Chevy Malibu loaded with the available Driver Confidence Package gets the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety’s Top Safety Pick+ award. This is the top award given by the IIHS. The Driver Confidence Package includes really high powered safety features for you and your family.

Front Braking

Low Speed Front Automatic Braking puts on the brakes if the system determines that a front end collision is unavoidable. This reduces the severity of the collision should one occur. Likewise, the system will brake if it determines there is a pedestrian at the front of the vehicle.

IntelliBeam Headlights

IntelliBeam headlights will switch automatically between high and low beams for you depending on the traffic conditions. When travelling more than 40 miles per hour, the Chevy Malibu uses a small sensor in the upper middle of the windshield to detect taillights or headlights on other vehicles when driving at night.

Front and Rear Park Assist

Front and Rear Park Assist will help you park your 2017 Chevrolet Malibu and avoid hitting any nearby objects while moving in and out of a space.

Side Blind Zone Alert with Lane Change Alert

Side Blind Zone Alert with Lane Change Alert detects vehicles in the adjacent lane coming up into the blind zone while your are driving. Lane Change Assist detects fast approaching vehicles in the adjoining lanes when you turn on your blinker to change lanes. These alerts appear in the outside mirrors.

Rear Cross-Traffic Alert

Backing up is a lot safer when your vehicle lets you know that an object or pedestrians are behind your vehicle.

All Together

The 2017 Chevrolet Malibu with an available Driver Assist Package is the way to keep you and your passengers safe while on the road. Combined with your own observations and safety awareness, these assistance guides make the 2017 Chevrolet Malibu and Pine Belt Chevrolet, topping the list of Lakewood car dealers, your besties on the road.

Does Color Really Matter On Our Automobiles?

When you are driving on the highway, do you ever notice the colors on the vehicles around you, or wonder why people select that car color? Research by color expert PPG says that almost 60 percent of car buyers say that color is a major factor in their buying decision. Thirty-nine percent of buyers will actually change the brand of automobile they buy if they can’t find the color they want. So, it does matter to dealers like Lakewood New Jersey’s Pine Belt Chevrolet, Pine Belt Subaru and Pine Belt Chrysler-Jeep, premier of car dealerships in NJ, what colors they select for the vehicles on their lots.

What Colors Do Buyers Buy?

Right now in every vehicle segment except for trucks, vans and SUVs (where white leads the pack), silver is the most popular color. Kelley Blue Book says this reflects our affinity toward technology.

Why Does It Matter?

The color of the vehicle you buy can have an affect on the resale value of your vehicle. If your car color is among the most popular, you will have an easier time selling it and get a better price for it. Purple and bright colors can actually accelerate depreciation on your vehicle.

The color red on a vehicle is interesting. You won’t pay more to insure it, but you will pay more for a red vehicle. Red and other bright colors are more expensive to make and require a special finish to keep them from fading. Manufacturers are forced to pass that cost on to the consumer. And, you are not more likely to get a ticket in a red car as per popular myth. Actually, white cars get pulled over more often.

Take the Plunge

If you ask us at Pine Belt Chevrolet, Pine Belt Subaru or Pine Belt Chrysler-Jeep, top lots among Lakewood car dealers, we think you are the best judge of what color to choose on your vehicle. If you want to stand out, pick a bold color. If you want to be practical, go silver. You drive it. What’s your color?
