PIB TIP: PERFORM REGULAR PM. Preventive maintenance ensures your truck is running efficiently. Check your current miles per gallon at each fill, and if it falls off, determine the reason. Check often enough to catch low oil, a dirty air filter or an air compressor leak. Don’t use a higher-viscosity oil than you need.
