Keep Your Gas Tank Full This Winter to Keep Your Stress Level Low

How can you get better gas mileage? This is a question that almost everyone has wondered at some point but never found an answer to. A popular myth is to keep your gas tank less than half full. Some believe this will reduce weight and allow better gas mileage, however, this statement is untrue and could lead to permanent damage. In the winter months having less fuel will leave more room for air and the moisture that comes with it. As moisture turns to condensation, it can drip into the fuel causing the fuel lines to sink and freeze. Once frozen, your vehicle can stop running entirely; which makes it more important to be aware of your fuel tank.

Our experts at Solomon Chrysler Jeep Dodge - Brownsville recommend that you make smaller fill-ups on a more routine basis to stand the fight against winter. Feel free to come in to our showroom at 409 National Pike West, and we can answer any questions you have to improve your fuel economy and prolong the life of your vehicle.
