Blue Toro’s top 7 vehicle performance tips

  1. Oil: use quality and change every 5,000km’s
  2. Air: use a quality air filter and change every 20,000km’s
  3. Wind: close windows on the highway to eliminate wind drag
  4. Weight: keep it light – don’t carry unnessary load, including roof racks
  5. Tyres: rotate regularly and inflate to specs
  6. Repairs: don’t prolong – it’s a false economy!
  7. Acceleration: no lead foots – this wastes fuel and causes wear and tear
