An Empty Gas Tank Could Be Worse Than Just Getting Stranded During Winter

Running your vehicle's gas tank down towards empty might be a money saver during the summer, but it's a bad idea in the winter. Letting it go empty when it's extremely cold out could mean it won't start even after you put more gas in it. That's because things can happen during the winter to gas tanks that don't happen in the warmer seasons.

What Happens During Winter?

During the cold winter months, condensation can build up in gas tanks that are less than half full. The water from that condensation can move into the fuel lines and freeze inside them. If your fuel lines freeze, your car will not start. So try to fill your tank up as much as possible and avoid situations that have you using more gas than necessary.

To make sure you're giving your vehicle the best care for winter, you should have our service team at Sheehy Nissan of Mechanicsville check it out. Just call or drive by our service center and we can provide premier care.
