Keeping Gas in Your Tank Through Winter Months

With the bitter cold of winter fully upon us, it’s important to stay on top of fundamental maintenance tips for your vehicle. The best thing that you can do to make certain you have the safest possible driving experience in winter is taking precautions now. Driving with a full tank of gas is more beneficial than you may even realize.

When the car is low on fuel, the gas tank has plenty of room for condensation to form. That turns to moisture that will eventually wind up in the gas tank. If the temperatures drop, now you risk ice forming in the line to stop the engine from running. If you drive with little fuel in the car during the winter, you may be putting yourself in real danger if you break down in the middle of the night. Without being able to keep the car running, you can't use the heat to stay warm while you try to get some help.

These winter driving tips from Kia of West Nyack should keep you driving more safely!
