A scheduled service can help in the following ways:
Using the correct oil and changing it at the correct intervals
Infrequent oil changes or using the wrong type of oil can increase CO2 emissions, as well as shortening the life expectancy of your engine. We use the most fuel-efficient oil suitable for your vehicle, providing up to 3% improved fuel economy*. Of course, you may already be achieving these savings if you’re using the correct oil and changing it at the right time.
* Based on using a Ford WSS-M2C913-C, ACEA A5/B5 5W-30 oil compared with ACEA reference oil RL 191 (15W-40)
Accurate tyre pressures
Did you know that 44% of all UK cars are running with under-inflated tyres?
The tyre pressure gauges used by Ford are extremely accurate and guarantee your tyre pressures are set correctly. 25% too low tyre pressure reduces fuel efficiency by 2%†
. Having the correct tyre pressure can save you up to £37 on fuel per year**.
** Based on a customer driving 12,000 miles/yr in a vehicle achieving 34mpg at a cost of £0.969 per litre of fuel
Air filter check
During your scheduled service we check the condition of the air filter to ensure it is functioning correctly. Blocked filters cause the engine to work harder and therefore increase its CO2 emissions.
