The Subaru "Share the Love" Event
The seventh annual "Share the Love" charity event is happening now! From November 20, 2014, to January 2, 2015, Subaru will donate $250 for every new Subaru vehicle purchased or leased to our customer's choice of the following national charities: ASPCA®, Make-A-Wish®, Meals On Wheels Association of America® and National Park Foundation™.1
 
This year’s program is expected to set a new record by generating up to $15 million in donations to our charitable partners.
 
In addition to the four national organizations, Subaru retailers once again have the opportunity to add a local hometown charity their customers can choose to support.

YOUR LOVE STORY
 
Ryan McKnight took his Subaru on a mountain adventure.
Seattle Santa Drives a Subaru
 
In the past 15 years I have had five different Subaru models. This coming December will mark my 15th season playing Santa for local nonprofits and each year Santa's sleigh has been a Subaru. Currently I get to my Ho-Ho-Ho gigs and anywhere else I want to go in a 2010 Outback.
 
The confidence and great gas mileage I get every time I'm behind the wheel from the all-wheel drive and boxer engine is amazing, and knowing that Mrs. Claus (who attends some of the annual visits) and I are in one of the safest vehicles on the road is beyond comparison.
 
The only way my Outback could be any better is if it could fly like those nine magical reindeer of lore.

INSIDER TIPS
 
Multiply Gas Savings with Vehicle Maintenance
 
As gas prices continue to drop, motorists should take advantage of their savings at the pump and invest it back into their vehicles. By spending a little now to increase fuel efficiency, drivers can multiply fuel savings and save more money at the pump, says the Car Care Council.
 
The nonprofit Car Care Council encourages motorists to be car care aware and perform simple steps to improve fuel efficiency and save money.
(Gas)

 
 • Engine Performance: Keep your car properly tuned to improve gas mileage by an average of 4 percent.
 • Tire Pressure: Keep tires properly inflated and improve gas mileage by up to 3.3 percent.
 • Motor Oil: Improve gas mileage by 1 to 2 percent by using the grade of motor oil recommended for your vehicle by the manufacturer.
(Gas)

 • Air Filters: Replacing clogged air filters on older vehicles can improve fuel economy and will improve performance and acceleration on all vehicles.
 • Gas Cap: Damaged, loose or missing gas caps allow gas to vaporize into the air.
 • Fix It: Addressing a serious maintenance problem, like a faulty oxygen sensor, can improve mileage by as much as 40 percent, according to www.fueleconomy.gov.
 
In addition to vehicle maintenance, modifying driving habits, such as observing the speed limit and avoiding quick stops and starts, also can increase fuel efficiency. Consolidating trips, avoiding excessive idling and removing unnecessary items from the trunk are also easy ways to lower fuel consumption.
