Fuel Saving Tip: Slow Down Around Lafayette

Posted April 26, 2020 10:30 AM



There's not much we can do about the price of gas in Lafayette, IN, but we do quite a bit about how much we use as we're driving on our Lafayette streets.

Our driving habits can dramatically affect our fuel economy.

The first thing we can do is watch the 'go-pedal.' Hard acceleration just sucks the gas. Gently leave stop lights and plan lane changes so you don't need to floor it. That can save you hundreds of dollars a year.

Go a little slower on the freeway. Once you're going more than 65 miles an hour (105 kilometers per hour), your fuel economy starts to drop dramatically. Leave early so you don't need to rush to be on time. And cruise control is your friend – steady speed uses less gas.

Plan errands ahead. Make fewer trips by combining errands.

Hey at current gas prices, a lead-foot might as well be a gold foot.

Following Recommended Intervals for Your vehicle

Posted April 19, 2020 8:58 AM

If you're reading this article in Lafayette, IN, then you probably care about your vehicle and how it runs. Even though you care, there is still that moment of dread when your professional service advisor at B & M Auto Specialist tells you the manufacturer recommends some additional service. Your heart beats a little faster, your blood pressure rises. You worry about spending more money than you had planned. And you worry that if you say "no," you might be harming your vehicle or risking your family's safety.

At the risk of sounding like your dad, you really should have done your homework. Service recommendations are in your owner's manual. But it is not like you want to keep your vehicle auto maintenance schedule on your nightstand for bedtime reading.

Vehicles are complicated machines and it takes some effort for Lafayette residents to keep them running well. That is why they have maintenance schedules that explain how to keep your vehicle performing efficiently and prevent breakdowns. In a typical owner's manual you'll find: oil change, brake fluid and pad change, coolant system service, transmission service, battery electrolyte levels, cables and terminals, tire pressure and wear, CV boots, cabin air filter, air conditioning, heater, fuel filter, air filter, belts and hoses, power steering fluid, differential service, fuel system cleaning and wheel alignment. And then there are mechanical service requirements like timing belt changes, valve adjustment, steering function, engine and exhaust leaks - yeah, it is a really long list!

Fortunately, this isn't a test: Lafayette residents don't need to have it memorized. Your friendly advisor at B & M Auto Specialist has access to your manufacturer's recommendations. Don't be surprised when your service advisor at B & M Auto Specialist reminds you something is due. Your manufacturer has taken great care in putting together your maintenance schedule. Let B & M Auto Specialist help you stay on top of maintenance. You can expect them to suggest recommended services and tell you what problems they find under the hood. We'll also explain how urgent these services are so you can work them into your budget.

Automotive Tips from B & M Auto Specialist: Wiper Blades ? Signs of Wear

Posted April 12, 2020 1:09 AM

90% of our driving decisions are based on vision. Anything that impedes your vision can affect your driving safety – including a dirty windshield. In that sense, your wiper blades are an important safety system. Most Lafayette drivers will wait until their wipers have failed before they replace them. Then they find themselves in a driving situation around IN when they really need forward visibility only to discover that their wipers are worn or maybe even torn and can’t clear snow or rain from the windshield.

As an important safety system, wiper blades should be replaced BEFORE they fail. Test your wipers at least once a month. If they are not doing the job, your friendly and professional B & M Auto Specialist service advisor can replace them for you.

Give us a call.

What Lafayette Automotive Service Consumers Should Know

Posted April 5, 2020 7:28 AM

There are some things drivers should know about Lafayette car service and repair. First and foremost, B & M Auto Specialist cares about you and your family's safety. And we really appreciate your business. B & M Auto Specialist in Lafayette wants to build a trusting relationship that becomes the foundation for a mutually beneficial experience for years to come.

Building on that foundation, there are some things that would help you understand the auto service and repair business better. First, it can be really hard to fix vehicles. The days of shade tree mechanics are long gone. The majority of automotive systems are computerized. It takes a lot of training and very expensive equipment to diagnose and repair modern vehicles. The pros who work for B & M Auto Specialist need extensive computer training – not just how to run the diagnostic systems, but also searching for the right parts, networking with other technicians to help them with a difficult problem and pulling together a job order that makes sure that each step of the process is addressed.

The threshold for getting started as a technician gets higher all the time in IN, and there is a huge commitment to on-going training every year. This training takes time and money. It contributes to business overhead. Average consumers in Lafayette may not realize the business and environmental regulations B & M Auto Specialist must comply with. Of course that costs money, too. Like any IN business, overhead is a big factor.

When you go into your favorite Lafayette area restaurant, you don't value the meal by what the food would cost at the grocery store. The restaurant has rent, wages, insurance, taxes, utilities, professional fees, equipment, supplies – you get the picture. The restaurant has to charge enough to not only pay for the ingredients, but for all these other things as well while making enough profit to remain in business. If you value the meal and are satisfied with your dining experience, you'll come back and tell your friends.

It's the same for B & M Auto Specialist. The value of its service is not the cost of the parts they replace, but in your satisfaction with the results. If they deliver a good product at a fair price, customers are happy to see them succeed as a IN automotive business.

At B & M Auto Specialist, we love to see our Lafayette customers whenever they come in, but we would much rather see them three or four times a year for routine maintenance than once a year on a tow truck. We want to work together with you to avoid breakdowns. Tell your friends and family to come in for their scheduled maintenance too. That lowers our marketing costs and helps keep labor rates down. That's good for everyone in Lafayette.
