Car Myths Debunked
 
You shouldn’t believe everything you hear, especially when it comes to automobiles. There are plenty of rumours out there when it comes to cars and although some are true, others are completely false. Read ahead to find out the true answer to common automotive myths.
 
A common rumour is that you should use premium fuel, even if your vehicle is designed to use regular oil. However, if you own a non-premium car, adding premium fuel to it will offer zero benefit and will end up being a huge waste of money.
 
Another common myth is that you should always buy your car in the morning or at night when the temperature is cooler. Although it does deliver more gas when it’s colder outside, the difference is so minimal that you will be wasting money if you have to make a special trip to get gas.
 
Finally, many people believe that manual transmission offers better fuel economy than automatic transmission. While this was true at one point, there have been such large advances in technology over the last twenty years that this is no longer true. In fact, in some cases vehicles with automatic transmission can actually produce better gas mileage.
