Why You Should Keep a Full Gas Tank in Winter

When the frigid temperatures make their way into your neighborhood, there's a lot of things you need to be cautious of. One of the most important things to remember is maintaining your own car. When the temperatures drop, it is important to make sure your gas tank is either full or has more than half a tank of gas in it.

Cold and constantly fluctuating temperatures create condensation that can develop on the inside of your gas tank. When water finds its way into your gas tank, it will sink to the bottom and can freeze up, blocking any new gas from entering. If a repair is needed, it can be extremely expensive and is completely avoidable.

If you currently have a car, make sure to treat it right and make sure there is gas in the tank during cold weather. If you are in the market for a new car, visit Lithia Nissan of Ames for a test drive!
