5 Tips to save petrol!

Thursday, June 12th, 2008

This is what happen when there’s a petrol hike!

SInce that we can do nothing now for the increase, perhaps we should look into how to save petrol! I’d personally try on the below and works well so far.

1. Pump petrol early morning when the ground temperature is still cold. The reason is the colder the ground is, the more dense the petrol is! When the ground gets warmer petrol expands,so buying in the afternoon or in the evening returns lesser litre you’re buying.

2. Fill up when your tank is HALF FULL. The reason for this is, the more fuel you have in your tank the less air occupying its empty space. petrol evaporates faster than you can imagine. Petroleum storage tanks have an internal floating roof. This roof serves as zero clearance between the petrol and the atmosphere, so it minimizes the evaporation.
