Why You Should Keep Your Vehicle's Fuel Tank Topped Off Through The Winter

The winter can be an especially difficult time for many, it is also a harsh season on your vehicle. One of the best practices any vehicle owner can get into the habit of is keeping the fuel tank as close to full as possible. It can be difficult in today's economy but doing so will save far more in the long run.

Keeping your fuel tank closer to empty may give you a very modest fuel mileage bump but the side effects of doing this can cost far more than simply keeping the tank topped off. Empty space inside of the fuel tank is not empty at all and contains water vapors that will gather together. If the fuel tank is made of metal it can cause serious rust issues.

Water is heavier than fuel and this water will slide down into the fuel lines where it will not only dilute the fuel but can freeze during the cold winter months, doing major damage in the process. Make sure your vehicle is ready for this winter, bring it into Jenkins Nissan today.
