Keep Your Gas Tank Free From Freeze

Wintertime is a time of cold weather, and what better way to prepare our vehicles for overnight freezing temperatures than with the application of a full tank of gas? It has been documented and repeated continuously that a full tank of gas while your vehicle sits overnight in freezing temperatures will keep your gas tank from freezing. You do not want a frozen gas tank as the pathway to your engine from the gas tank is blocked, disallowing your vehicle to start.

Moisture is the reason for this frozen tank as moisture in a vehicle’s gas tank freezes, but the gasoline doesn’t. In the event that you happen to forget to fill your tank before parking it for long periods of time, park your car in the garage versus on the street, this way your vehicle won’t get exposed to freezing temperatures.
