Fuel Saving Tip: Alignment For Your Centennial Truck

Imagine you’ve left Centennial and you’re up in the arctic on a dog sled.

Your dog team is pulling straight and true. You can cover a lot of ground quickly. Now imagine what would happen if one or two of the dogs wanted to go their own way and were pulling off to the side.

That would slow you down. You would have to work harder to keep the sled going where you wanted it. The dogs are all working as hard as before, but you’re covering less ground with the same effort.

You’re wasting kibble.

The same is true of your truck when the wheels are out of alignment. That wheel that’s pulling to the side is dragging down the rest of the vehicle; so you push a little harder on the gas pedal to keep up your speed. You’re wasting gas.

Sometimes we all bump a curb or hit a pothole and knock our wheels out of alignment (and let’s be honest – it’s always pothole season around Denver, with our weather changing up at random!) An accident can take the wheels out of alignment as well.

Denver area auto owners need to make sure they’re tracking straight. You’ll get better fuel economy and your tires will last longer. Now, mush!
