Reasons to Keep Fuel in the Tank This Winter

If you are not driving around with a full tank of gas this winter, you could be putting yourself at risk in more ways than one. These are a few of the things to consider if you are driving in the cold with hardly any gasoline in the tank.

Less fuel means less weight, and when traveling on icy roads, you want to give the tires as many chances to grip the road as possible. If you drive with no gas and run into trouble, you could be freezing in a car without the ability to use the heat or walk for help. Condensation is bad in the gas tank, and an empty tank leaves more room for moisture to build and get into the gas. If it freezes overnight, that water turns to ice, and it becomes impossible to start the car.
