Subaru technicians can help you maximize fuel-efficiency.

An expertly trained Subaru technician has the knowledge to keep your vehicle running at an optimum performance and to help save your money. Proper maintenance maximizes fuel-efficiency, which is one of the many benefits of servicing your vehicle at your local Subaru dealership.

Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS)
Properly inflated tires are safer, last longer, and can improve mileage by 3%. Check pressure weekly and always when tires are cold. The sticker inside the driver's side door indicates proper pressure for your vehicle.

Engine Oil and Oil Filter
Along with routine oil and filter changes, using the lightest grade of oil for your climate, season and vehicle can improve fuel economy by as much as 6%.

Air Filter
A clogged air filter makes your engine work harder and use more fuel. Replacing a dirty air filter can improve mpg by as much as 10%.

Spark Plugs
A misfiring spark plug can cut fuel efficiency by as much as 30%. Replacing spark plugs according to owner's manual recommendations will help maintain maximum fuel efficiency.

Engine Diagnostics
A "Check Engine" light can signal a number of problems that impact fuel economy. Diagnosing and repairing a faulty oxygen sensor alone can improve fuel economy by up to 40%.

Improper alignment reduces gas mileage because it takes more energy (gas) to keep your vehicle riding straight down the road.

Vehicle maintenance is an important factor for proper vehicle operation. The vehicle's driver should ensure that fluid levels (engine oil, coolant, etc.) are checked frequently (i.e., each time you add fuel) in accordance with the instructions in the owner's manual.

Your Subaru vehicle (except H6 and turbocharged models) requires an initial engine oil and filter change at 7,500 miles or 7.5 months, whichever occurs first. Subaru H6 engine model vehicles will require an initial 3,000 mile/3 month oil change, as a part of its regular maintenance schedule. For all Subaru turbocharged vehicles, the recommended oil and oil filter change interval is every 3,750 miles or four months, whichever comes first. We suggest that you schedule an appointment for this service and any other necessary adjustments at your local Subaru dealer. Locate your local dealer by going to the upper right corner of and input your zip code.

The frequency of scheduled inspection and maintenance services as set forth below is minimal. However, it may be necessary that they be performed more frequently depending on road conditions, weather, atmospheric conditions, vehicle usage and individual driving habits.

Maintenance, repair or replacement of the emission control devices and systems of your car may be performed by any automotive repair establishment or individual, using any automotive part which its manufacturer has certified will not result in a failure of your car to comply with the regulations of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
