How to save money when pumping gas

Did you know that? Pumping gas with these tips can save you money at the pump!
Gas is highly expensive these days. Listed here are better ways to pump gas:

  • Only buy or fill up your car or truck in the early morning when the ground temperature is still cold
  • Do not begin by pumping your gas on the high mode, pumping on low minimizes the vapor content of the gas (which is better for your health) and better for your wallet!
  •  Fill up when your gas tank is HALF FULL. The higher amount of gas you have in your tank results in  less air occupying its empty space.
  • Driving tip: Do not use your gas as you approach a hill. The potential energy of your height on the hill will increase your speed without gas.
