Get More Gas $4 Your Greenbacks
Each and every day that the sun breaches the eastern seaboard and begins to shine light down on the United States we rise to face a new day of economic challenges. The financial gap between the wealthy classes and the poor widens a little more and many of us are desperate to find ways to save a few pennies in our pockets. Escalating prices at the pump cause hundreds of thousands of families to participate in activities closer to home. Recently I came across an article which offered some insight on how to get more gas $4 your greenbacks. Are you tired of feeling like this when you visit the pump? I know I am and while these survival savings tips alone won’t double as the children’s college fund, it will improve you experiences at the service station somewhat.
“Only buy or fill up your car or truck in the early morning when the ground temperature is still cold. Remember that all service stations have their storage tanks buried below ground. The colder the ground the more dense the gasoline, when it gets warmer gasoline expands, so buying in the afternoon or in the evening....your gallon is not exactly a gallon.”
You are going to pay the same price for what the pump reads regardless of whether or not the actual supply rate indicated is achieved accurately. Filling up in the early morning is also a good idea since most stations raise their prices later in the day is there is going to be an adjustment. I have ceremoniously adhered to survival savings tips of this nature daily. It takes some time to acclimate yourself to conducting business on a schedule but in conjunction with other cost cutting opportunities the money starts to mount up.
“When you're filling up do not squeeze the trigger of the nozzle to a fast mode. If you look you will see that the trigger has three (3) stages: low, middle, and high. You should be pumping on low mode, thereby minimizing the vapors that are created while you are pumping. All hoses at the pump have a vapor return. If you are pumping on the fast rate, some of the liquid that goes to your tank becomes vapor. Those vapors are being sucked up and back into the underground storage tank so you're getting less worth for your money.”
Tricky little SOB’s aren’t they. It isn’t enough that they employ gas price gouging procedures; they also retain excess fuel through the entrapment and reclamation of vapors. Is it too much to ask to give us what we paid for? Is it any wonder we have to discover and share survival savings tips just to make ends meet?
“One of the most important tips is to fill up when your gas tank is HALF FULL. The reason for this is the more gas you have in your tank the less air occupying its empty space. Gasoline evaporates faster than you can imagine…if there is a gasoline truck pumping into the storage tanks when you stop to buy gas, DO NOT fill up; most likely the gasoline is being stirred up as the gas is being delivered, and you might pick up some of the dirt that normally settles on the bottom.”
