2 tips for filling petrol and diesel:-


Only buy or fill up your car or bike  during early  morning, when the  ground temperature is still cold. Remember that all service stations have  their storage tanks underground.. The colder the ground, the more dense  the fuel. When it gets warmer, petrol expands. So, buying in the afternoon  or in the evening, your  litre is not exactly a litre. In the  petroleum business, the specific gravity and the temperature play an  important role. 1 degree rise in temperature is a big deal for this  business. But the service stations do not have temperature  compensation at the pumps.

Another  most important tip is to fill up when your  tank is HALF FULL.  The reason for this is, the more fuel  you have in your tank the less is the air occupying its empty space.  Petrol evaporates faster than you can imagine.

    If this is true ( and should be believed as true as somebody must have knowledge and experience in this regard ) then its amazing. Thanks for such information.

    There was a blurb about this on the news this week. They said that yes, these tricks do get a little more gas for

    your money, but the increase was so slight that it’s not worth it–only a few cents per tank.
