J's Auto Service
I recently had a couple bad experiences with J's Auto Repair. First I had my brakes done. This included the front pads. The price was $359.00. I didn't think too much of it, because I trusted him, and I had used his dad's shop for so long. Later my master cylinder went out on my truck. He replaced it for $1122.00. I knew that was too much, but still I did not say anything. A few months later a starter went out, and I had to get my vehicle towed to his shop. He charged $569.00 to replace a starter. I paid him. I then checked on the price at some other shops. Most were less than half what he charged. Also my brakes are still making a loud squeaking noise. I called J, to asked him about his high prices. He immediately begin apologizing, and telling me that he has been over charging to cover his charges. He also informed me that I could come and get the amount he overcharged me refunded back to me. I declined. I let him know that I would report him to the BBB, and tell everyone I knew. He was very apologetic, but this was after he was confronted. I WILL NEVER USE J's AUTO REPAIR AGAIN. We have plenty mechanics in the area. My brake are still not working correctly.
Tips & Advices
Driver can find the cheapest gas prices by using an app to search for the lowest prices in their area.  Some apps such as Gas Guru take note of your location, and provide a list of gas stations nearby, along with the cost of gas currently being sold at each station.
There are things you can do to slightly improve the fuel efficiency of your vehicle. Make sure your car's tires are properly inflated, and treat your engine to regular tune-ups. Check your engine's air filter, since a dirty air filter will compromise fuel economy.
Drivers must shut their engine off before pumping gas because it's illegal to fuel with the engine running, even though this law isn't always aggressively enforced. Pumping gas with the engine running can compromise your safety. When your car's engine is running, it's possible for its catalytic converters to generate heat that could ignite gasoline, and start a fire.
Even though many gas stations have warnings advising you not to use your cell phone while fueling, the chances of cell phones igniting a gasoline vapor fire are extremely remote. However, fires at the gas pump may be caused by static electricity discharge. For safe fueling, it's recommended that you turn off your car's engine and avoid smoking at the pump. Also, you should never re-enter your vehicle while refueling.
Many factors contribute to the lack of uniformity in gas prices. Retailers consider their tax responsibilities when setting gas prices. States place varying taxes on gasoline retailers, and a state with higher taxes will have higher gas prices than a state in which the taxes are lower. Also, if a gas station is located in an especially competitive area, a branded operator may receive wholesale discounts that allow the station to sell gas at a lower price. This is done by brands to keep their gas competitive in tight markets.
