How not to lose money at the gas pumps?!

Recently everything also increase$$ and how can we survive? Ok, here is a little tips that I gather and some of it I do practice it myself.

Here are some tricks to get more of your money’s worth for every litter.

Only buy or fill up your car or truck in the early morning or night time when the ground temperature is still cold. Remember that all service stations have their storage tanks buried below ground. The colder the ground the more dense is the gasoline, when it gets warmer gasoline expands, so buying in the afternoon or in the evening, your 1-gal is not exactly 1-gal.

If there is a gasoline truck bringing loads at the time when you have to buy gas do not fill up, most likely the gasoline has been stirred up when the gas is delivered, and you might get some of the dirt that settled at the bottom.

When you’re filling up do not squeeze the trigger of the nozzle to a fast mode. If you look up you will see that the trigger has three (3) stages: lo, mid, and hi, with slow mode you should be pumping on low speed, thereby minimizing the vapors that were created while you are pumping. If you are pumping on fast rates, some of the liquid that goes to your tank become vapors; those vapors were being sucked up back to the underground tank so that you’re getting less worth of your money.

One of the most important tip is to fill up when your gas tank is half full or half empty. The reason for this is, the more gas you have in your tank the less air occupying it’s empty space, remember gasoline evaporates faster than you think.

Hope this will help you guys with your pump cost.

This blog is a platform to share what I love in life: food (eat), travel (play), photography (art) and life (thoughts and ideas). With passion for food, I share my foodie adventures and indulgences here. “There is no love sincerer than the love of food.”

Traveling makes us a better human being as we recognise the similarities and celebrate the differences of cultures between where we travel to and where we come from. “The World is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page.”

Photography do more than just capturing the best moments in our lives; they also help us tell our life stories. “Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever… it remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.”
