At the end of December 2016, My car was broken down in my driveway and was unable to start. I was stranded. Mike the mechanic from Getty on Kimball ave was kind enough to come all the way to my home and charge my car and inspect the problem. At first he thought that it was the alternator, and he drove my car back to the Getty station to further inspect the issue. Very shortly after i received a phone call from mike, to let me know that it was not the alternator, but it was in fact the battery which just needed a jump start. Also mike was kind enough to let me know that my inspection was almost up and due in January. He inspected my car and also gave me an oil change, on top of checking my car for any other minor or severe problems. All of this was done at a very fair and reasonable price much to my surprise. I am so thankful that mike was kind enough to do all of these things for me. It is my great pleasure to write this recommendation . Thank you mike so much for all of your help and for being such an honest and efficient mechanic! I will also recommend you and your station to anyone i know that needs assistance with their vehicle. Thanks again for everything mike i really appreciate it! Sincerely, L Donohue
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.
