How we can help
At Auto Super Shoppes we have state of the art emission testing equipment, so we can tell you whether your car is running at maximum efficiency. Our emission testing will tell us if you are using the wrong fuel for your vehicle, or too much fuel for your car. This could lead to blockages in the exhaust system and a loss of performance.
Exhaust leaks can be a danger to your passengers, carbon monoxide from the engine is poisonous and it can cause loss of consciousness and critical health risks.
Our team are also well trained in compliance testing for modified vehicles and decibel limits for big bore exhausts.
Minimising your carbon footprint, by getting your car tested for emissions shows your care for the environment.
Did You Know
Did you know that finding and repairing serious faults, for example, an oxygen sensor malfunction, can improve your fuel consumption by as much as 40%!
A change in your driving habits can also dramatically affect your fuel economy.
Watch your speed. At 80Kms, 50% of your fuel is being using to overcome wind resistance.
Avoid aggressive driving. Rapid acceleration and deceleration dramatically increases fuel use.
Drive at a steady speed, allow enough following distance, stopping the need to jam on the brakes.
Properly inflate your tyres.
Under-inflation puts strain on your engine, in addition to reducing the safety of your vehicle.
Have your engine tuned regularly. A well maintained engine is at least 4% more efficient.
- Keep your windows up when driving at higher speeds. The increased turbulence caused by the windows being down will mean you use more fuel.
