Fill Your Gas Tank More Often in Winter for Better Results

Cold months are arriving, and it is time to prepare for the worst-case scenarios. Allowing the fuel level in your gas tank to reach a low point can create many problems. Gas tanks that aren't full can build up moisture. When that moisture freezes, gas has a harder time moving to your engine. The fix is a simple one. You need to fill up more often.

A good rule of thumb is to get gas when your tank is half full. Your car's engine should respond with better overall performance. There are other benefits, too, when you keep the gas topped off. You won't have to worry about running out of fuel if you must make an emergency trip in the middle of the night.

Here at Shore Toyota, we care about your winter driving safety. Keep a full gas tank because being stranded in the cold weather is no fun. Stay safe by staying diligent this winter. And be sure to book a maintenance appointment with our team if you have service work due!
