HOUSTON (June 13, 2008) — Jiffy Lube International will give customers a fuel efficiency review detailing gas saving tips that can help them save money at the pump, in addition to a $10 American Express prepaid fuel card with the purchase of an oil change.
The gas card is part of Jiffy Lube's “Perfect 10” promotion.
“Finding ways to maximize fuel efficiency is without question a top priority for drivers,” said Lisa Carlson, global director of marketing at Jiffy Lube International. “Jiffy Lube can be a part of the solution for our customers.”
When performing oil changes, Jiffy Lube technicians visually inspect the engine air filter. Replacing a clogged filter is one way to improve gas mileage. Technicians also replace the motor oil with a fresh supply, and check to see if tires are properly inflated as ways to maximize gas output.
The company also recommends that drivers:
* Use cruise control and overdrive gears to maintain a consistent speed;
* Observe the speed limit;
* Avoid aggressive driving including speeding and rapid acceleration and braking;
* Lighten a vehicle's load by removing non-critical items; and
* Make the appropriate maintenance appointments.
