As an amateur motorist who had just got his new car, I treated it with utmost care, like the last bit of my Cornetto ice cream. In spite of this, I had a below average mileage on my car compared to what the automobile company portrayed. This was driving me nuts.
So I reached out to my friend and asked him for any tips for improvement (considering my friend to be a motorhead, I believed he might have more experience). Apparently not, his mileage ratio in comparison to the standard mileage depicted by the company was off the grid.This was what made me think do we actually have a problem here.
The three part car maintenance problem
Now most of you must be thinking: “Easy! Just refer the internet for mileage improvement hacks and follow them”. It’s easier said than done .Yea, you can read them and learn about it, but it’s quite difficult to keep it in mind and execute it. So I questioned myself, what would be required to keep my car in top condition at all times:
#1. “How do I improve my mileage?”
#2. “How do I know if my Engine is in good condition?”
#3. “What is my contribution to Global Warming?”
Though the last one might be contradicting to the title, as it’s not going to benefit only your car, but the society as well, and it is indeed a problem.
Do you believe this to be a problem or faced something similar? I think I might be able to help.
So at the end of the day, you might think my mileage might just be fine the way it is. What if you could have a Smart Assistant to help you be on top of your car maintenance problems?
