Keeping Gas in the Tank this Winter to Prevent Headaches

Driving the car in winter with anything less than a full tank of gas can be dangerous in a number of ways. Here are a few things you will want to consider when it comes to driving with a full tank of gas in winter, courtesy of our team at Volvo Cars of New Bern.

The less fuel that is in the gas tank, the more room for moisture to form. That moisture will freeze overnight as temperatures dip, and that could be problematic with frozen fuel lines. The car engine will not get gas, and you will be stuck. Road conditions are bad enough in winter, so it is important to do everything to give the tires the ability to grip the road. Adding more fuel to the tank makes the vehicle heavier, which helps add that much more traction to the road surface.

These safety tips provided by our team at 3506 Dr. Martin Luther King Blvd will keep you and your passengers safer this winter.
