TODAY’S TIP: Stay on top of preventive maintenance. Systematic PM saves you money in the long run by reducing the chances of equipment failure on the road and reducing time lost to repairs. It also helps reduce the severity of failures if they do occur. A properly maintained engine will last much longer and use less fuel.
