For many people, their car is their prized possession.

And as such, you want to make sure that it performs as well as possible.

However, most people are under the false impression that you need to spend thousands and thousands of dollars to improve the performance of your car.

This is simply not true. With a few small tweaks you can not only ensure that your car continues running for years to come, but you can actually make it run even better than the day that you first bought it!

And the best part?

You don’t have to break the bank to do it!

Here’s how.

1. Declutter Your Car

I know this may sound cheesy or overplayed, but when your car is filled with useless garbage (literally or figuratively) the added weight adds more wear and tear to your vehicle as you put more miles on it.

An easy way to instantly improve how your car performs and ensure that it continues running smoothly throughout the years is to declutter. Throw out everything you don’t need and try to eliminate as much unnecessary weight as possible.

2. Use the Highest Quality Oil (Regularly)

Another easy way to improve the performance of your car is to regularly change the oil (every 2,000 – 3,000 miles or so) using the highest quality of oil that you can buy.

Not only is there something therapeutic about changing the oil on your own car, but doing so on a regular basis will ensure that the engine runs smoothly through thick and thin.
