Behold the power of a tune-up! In this two part series, MotoIQ discusses 10 things to improve a car's engine performance and fuel economy.

 

Part 1 - Vehicle Interior: Fresh Plugs & Filters, Fluid Change

Part 2 - Vehicle Exterior: Tires & Wheels, LED Lighting

Gas mileage gains resulting from part 1 are revealed before delving into the next 5 steps: New tires, brake pads and rotors, interior and exterior lighting upgrades.
