Green River Auto
Rich, the mechanic who founded and owns Green River Auto, came from a shop in Guilford, VT with the best reputation in this entire part of New England. Rich has a strong reputation on car-repair forums as an exceptionally good mechanic with a solid, honest system of values. The reason I found this out is that I am a little bit of a gear-head, having taken apart antique tractors and done repairs on an old flathead V-8 Ford sedan, for instance, and I also happen to be a women in my 60s. So when we moved to this new part of the country (to me) and needed a mechanic, I went to the gear-head discussion boards where guys who work on their own cars and trucks advise one another about where to go in the event of a problem that's too big or too baffling for a backyard effort. Based on what they said, I went to Green River Auto. And they were absolutely right about Rich and his shop! One of the mechanics who works with Rich, Doug, is also a used-car buyer for customers. When I told Doug what we're looking for and how much we could spend for a vehicle that's not all that commonly available in this part of the country, he listened carefully, asked important questions, then FOUND exactly what we were looking for! He was able to negotiate a great deal on it for us, brought it back to the shop, and they went through and fixed it up to make sure it was up to their standards of excellence before delivering it – all within our budget. This shop is a class act all the way, and every mechanic we met there was first-rate. I've lived all over the country, 8 states from Texas to California and back in just the last 30 years, and this is hands-down THE best shop I've found. And believe me, I work hard to find the best mechanic in every place I live. There have been a lot of good ones, too. But Green River Auto and Rich and Doug are the best. You cannot go wrong with them. Whether you just need a good mechanic for a vehicle you already own, or need to find a superior used vehicle and make sure it's reliable the moment you take possession, Green River is the place to go.
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.
