Pine Belt Auto: 10 Steps to Better Your MPG.

1) Maintain Your Vehicle. A car in poor condition may use more gas than one that has been well maintained and tuned up. Incorrect fuel ratio, bad spark plugs and incorrect spark timing can have a big effect on gas mileage. Spark Plugs in poor condition can reduce gas mileage up to 12%

2) Check Your Air Filter. Almost 25% of cars are running on a dirty air filter. Changing a dirty filter can improve gas mileage by as much as 10-20%!

3) Make Sure Your Tires are Properly Inflated. Under inflated tires can adversely affect a car’s mileage and lead to uneven and/or premature wear. Properly inflating problem tires is like knocking 11 cents off a gallon of gas!

4) Observe the Speed Limit. Although each vechicle reaches its optimal fuel economy at different ranges of speed, gas mileage decreases rapidly at speeds over 60 mph. Put it in perspective: Driving over 60 mph is like paying an extra $0.28 per gallon for gas. Not to mention that observing the speed limit is also safer!

5) Use Cruise Control. Using cruise control on the highway can help you maintain a constant speed and will help you save on gas.

6) Don’t Idle. One of the easiest ways to save gas is to turn off a car’s engine while waiting at a curb or sitting at an extended stoplight for more than 30 seconds.

7) Go Easy on The Brakes & Gas Pedal. Avoid “jackrabbit” starts by accelerating gradually whenever possible. The smoother you accelerate and decelerate, the better your gas mileage, with potential gas savings of 33 percent on the highway and five percent around town. This will not only increase your gas mileage, but also prolong the life of your brakes!

8 ) Remove Excess Weight. Avoid keeping any unnecessary items in your vehicle, especially those that are heavy. Reducing the vehicle’s weight is the easiest way to improve your fuel economy. Carrying an additional 100 pounds around can increase a vehicle’s energy consumption by 1-2%. For every 100 pounds unloaded, you’re saving about 6 cents per gallon!

9) Reduce Drag. Around half of your vehicles energy is expended overcoming air resistance, with the other half expending in acceleration. Reduce your car’s workload by removing anything that may cause drag, such as luggage, bike or ski racks. Also keep your windows closed whenever possible, as open windows actually reduce gas mileage compared to using the air conditioning.

10) Combine Errands into One Trip. Consolidate your trips and errands to destinations that are near one another. Once you arrive, park and walk between destinations. Try to save errands for one afternoon and plan your out your trip. You will save gas and reduce wear and tear on your vehicle!

Another Happy Customer Leaves Pine Belt Nissan in Toms River

Pine Belt Nissan’s #1 concern is treating each and every customer as if they were our own family member. Here is another happy customer that left Pine Belt Nissan in Toms River!!

Went to Pine Belt while shopping around for a new car, from the moment I stepped into the dealership and was met by Jim Ansbach I almost immediately felt at ease, his introduction and no pressure manner made for a terrific experiance, even though I told him i was “just Looking” he never treated as a person wasting his time like I felt at some other dealerships in Toms River, he showed my options and different styles of cars and really gave me all of my options and before I knew it we were shaking hands on a deal, I love my new Rogue and got what I felt was a really fair price. I would reccommend Pine Belt and namely Jim to anyone and everyone I know. Thanks Jim for your advise, humor and patience with me, you are a credit to your employers and I hope they know that, If not tell me to ask your customers.

Happy 20th to the Nissan Altima

Ladies and gentlemen, to celebrate its the 20th anniversary of the Nissan Altima and its 3.6 million units distributed the world over, Nissan is introducing a package aptly called…the 20th Anniversary Package. We know, we’re in awe of the marketing effort to come up with such a title, too. But for $950 on top of the 2012 Nissan Altima’s base $21,170 base price, including $760 for destination and handling, it’s not a bad deal in the humble opinion of our staff.

In the Altima 20th Anniversary Package, Nissan offers 16-inch aluminum wheels, fog lights, a rear spoiler, automatic headlights, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, Bluetooth connectivity, a universal garage door opener, and additional touches here and there. Nissan will take orders for cars equipped with the package beginning Nov. 18 with orders coming to dealerships the second half of the month at the earliest.

But that’s not all!

We’ve just tackled two paragraphs of a three-page press release. Surely, there’s more to this noble endeavor than just an options list addition. Of course there is!

Nissan took time to share its Rocky-like climb to the top, fending off first-world problems like pronunciation problems with its name (yes, this is seriously in the press release). Nissan originally sold the Altima alongside the forgotten Nissan Stanza midsizer and when the changeover began to the new model, the company called it the Altima Stanza. Nissan’s done this before with the Datsun-Nissan name back in the 1980s before taking on its Japanese moniker and with the Pathfinder Armada SUV before shortening the name to simply Armada.

Nissan says it was designed to battle the Honda Accord and Toyota Camry, which were the top-selling midsize sedans in 1992. We’re not Ford apologists, but a certain car called the Taurus appears to be missing from Nissan’s literature, especially since it was the best-selling car in the U.S. in 1992. That could also have something to do with the animosity those two brands have in the hotly contested minivan-to-taxi market they’re both vying for with the Nissan NV200 and Ford Transit Connect.

Then Nissan talks about its ascent to where it is today with the second-best selling midsize sedan in the U.S. with its “Cure for the common sedan” campaign back in 2002. It concludes its epic press release with a quote from Nissan’s North American vice president Al Castignetti: “What’s most encouraging, of course, is that Altima still has nothing in common with the common sedan and stands out as a cut above the ordinary for people who want more style, power, comfort, and value. It’s innovation that lasts, innovation for all.”

We can only imagine him yelling that into a microphone a la Rocky III from atop Nissan’s Smyrna, Tenn. headquarters around a crowd of Nissan converts. In fact, we’d pay to see that.
