Reasons to Keep Gas in the Tank this Winter

If you are still driving your car with hardly any fuel in the tank as the winter months roll in, you may want to consider the following. Driving around with no gas in the tank could put you at risk for a number of problems this winter.

Icy roads are hard enough to navigate, especially so when the car is light in the rear. A full tank of gas adds several needed pounds to the vehicle so the tires can better grip the road. Being stuck at night when you run out of gas can be especially dangerous because you cannot get heat from the car if it can't start. The more room in the gas tank for air, the more potential for moisture forming from condensation. That moisture gets into the fuel line and turns to ice in freezing conditions.

Strive to stay safe this winter by visiting Chilson-Wilcox for fuel maintenance to improve efficiency.
