Chances are that if your minivan oxygen sensor is kaput your check engine light will come on. Now, there’s any number of things that could cause your check engine light to come on besides oxygen sensor problems.

Here’s an easy one for busy SC drivers: Inflate your tires to the recommended pressure. That could save you three percent or eleven cents a gallon. Even a little drop in pressure will cost you at the Greer pump so check your minivan tires every week.
Your vehicle manufacturer has recommended a specific weight of motor oil. The recommendation is based on your minivan engine design and will give you the best protection. Using a heavier weight could cost one to two percent in reduced fuel economy, or up to seven cents a gallon.
Here are some free gas saving tips: Don’t drive aggressively, drive within the Greer speed limit and remove excess weight (junk in the trunk) from your vehicle. These can add up to a dollar or more per gallon.
