When a vehicle’s fuel system experiences a total failure, it grinds to a halt, leaving the car stranded until the issue is resolved. However, there are also less severe fuel system issues that can arise, and it’s crucial to recognize the warning signs. If you notice a decrease in acceleration power or hesitations during acceleration in your Subaru, the fuel system could be to blame. Additionally, problems like reduced fuel efficiency and engine stalling can also indicate issues within the fuel system. Unfortunately, these symptoms can stem from various underlying issues, requiring a diagnostic test to pinpoint the exact cause. In the meantime, adopting certain preventative measures can help maintain a healthy fuel system and reduce the risk of future problems. Regular maintenance, such as fuel system cleanings and inspections, along with using high-quality fuel and replacing fuel filters at recommended intervals, can all contribute to keeping your Subaru’s fuel system in optimal condition.

Benefits of Premium Gasoline

A straightforward way to maintain your fuel system’s health is by choosing premium gasoline from a trusted service station. This guarantees that you’re consistently fueling up with top-quality gas. Premium fuel not only reduces the accumulation of ash deposits in your fuel system but also improves your vehicle’s fuel efficiency. Surprisingly, many over-the-counter fuel additive products are not as effective as believed. Therefore, there’s no real need to include them in your refueling regimen.

Stay Current With Your Recommended Service Schedule

While it’s essential to keep your fuel system in good working order, it’s not necessary to inspect it during every routine maintenance visit. Subaru recommends a fuel system inspection every 30,000 miles. This regular check allows a trained technician to spot any potential issues early on, preventing them from developing into larger and more expensive problems. When your odometer reaches 72,000 miles, it’s a good idea to replace the fuel filter, regardless of its outward appearance. This ensures continued protection for your fuel injection system and cylinders, guarding against potential contamination from debris that may be present in the fuel tank. If you’re not meticulously keeping track of your various maintenance activities and their intervals— which admittedly isn’t common— sticking to regular maintenance appointments at Byers Airport Subaru can be highly beneficial. We take on the responsibility of recording all your maintenance details and sending you timely reminders for your Subaru’s service appointments.
