Car Care for the Clueless – “Yes, you can: Saving money at the pump”

This week on Car Care for the Clueless, host Pam Oakes is focusing in on how the consumer can actually save money at the gas pump. First, she talks with Sandy regarding her Lexus and its fuel issue. Pam explains how Sandy could have prevented premature fuel pump failure in her luxury vehicle and save fuel costs at the same time.
Our featured email question of the week comes from the keyboard of Carol, from Washington (state). She wants to know if it’s ok to pump 87 octane into a vehicle that requires 92 octane. Pam explains that performance and miles per gallon is based on the quality, not the quantity. Listen in and see how your vehicle and wallet can benefit from her advice.
Pam caught up with our gadget guru Peter Sudak at the National Automotive Distribution Network, in Las Vegas. They discuss how simple it is for the consumer to keep their fuel economy up and fuel costs down. Listen in and learn.
This week’s cheap car tip concentrates, again, on saving you money on fuel. Tune in and see how saving pennies at the pump will turn into dollars in your pocket.
