Why You Should Always Keep Your Gas Tank Full

Every year winter comes about, and for many of us, it can be a very difficult time. These cold months make life a bit more difficult for us as well as for our vehicles. Cold temperatures can wreak all kinds of havoc on a vehicle if the proper steps aren't taken to minimize or negate the damage.

One of the best practices to stick to, even beyond the winter months, is to keep your vehicle's fuel tank topped off whenever you can. Operating on a full tank may add a bit more weight to the vehicle but keeping it fully protects the fuel system.

A tank closer to empty has a pocket of empty air space which actually has water vapors within it. These vapors can gather and condense, cause rust issues as well as get into the fuel pump and lines where it can freeze in the cold temperatures.

Make sure your vehicle gets the service it deserves, brings it in to our staff members at Lithia Nissan of Medford today.
