Tips to save oil petrol fuel

Some tips for saving Petrol and Diesel:

Only buy or fill up your car or bike during early morning, when the ground temperature is still cold. Remember that all service stations have their storage tanks underground.. The cooler the ground, the more dense the fuel. When it gets warmer, petrol expands. So, buying in the afternoon or in the evening, your litre is not exactly a litre.

In the petroleum and oil business, the specific gravity and the temperature play an important role. Just one degree rise in temperature is a big deal for this business. But the fuel pumps and service stations do not have temperature compensation at the pumps.

Another most important tip is to fill up when your tank is HALF FULL. The reason for this is, the more fuel you have in your tank the less is the air occupying its empty space. This will prevent the petrol volatility to a larger extent. Petrol evaporates faster than you can imagine.

Another useful information is to avoid filling up if there is a fuel truck pumping into the storage tanks when you stop to buy. Most likely, the petrol/diesel is being stirred up as the fuel is being delivered, and you might pick up some of the dirt that normally settles on the bottom.

Avoid honking – use your horn only when required. A portion of lights and other power sources are taken from fuel. Even if they are taken from battery, you will end up charging the battery which will again cost heavily on fuel.

Most important of all – identify a genuine petrol pump where there are less chances of cheating and adulteration. Always keep a close eye on the meter while filling the petrol.

Avoid taking the so called Speed, Power or Turbojet kind of high-efficiency Fuels. There is no concrete information available about their performance and efficiency. Also, they are way costly than the normal regular petrol and diesel.
Hope this will help you get the most value for your money.
