Don't Let Your Gas Run Out During the Winter

Letting your gas tank stay partially full during the winter can be quite damaging to your vehicle. What can happen during the colder winter months is that water and gas fume condenses on the inside walls of your gas tank, leading to a mix of gas and water.

It can be tough for your budget to justify filling your vehicle up all the way. While it may not be easy on your budget, filling the tank up means you're able to benefit from better gas mileage. Water vapors in the engine mean that water mixes with gas, making your car use fuel less efficiently.

This is one of the many reasons why we at Lithia Hyundai of Anchorage recommend that you choose to fill your car up during the winter months. If you have any more questions regarding winterizing your car, don't hesitate to come and see us as we are happy to help.
