TIPS ON PUMPING
GAS

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. In the petroleum business, the specific gravity and the temperature of the
gasoline, diesel and jet fuel, ethanol and other petroleum
products
plays an important role.

A 1-degree rise in temperature is a big
deal for this business. But the service stations do not have temperature
compensation at the pumps.

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.

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. Gasoline storage tanks have an internal
floating roof. This roof serves as zero clearance between the gas and the
atmosphere, so it minimizes the evaporation. Unlike service stations, here where
I work, every truck that we load is temperature compensated so that every gallon
is actually the exact amount.

Another reminder, 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.

To have an impact, we need to reach
literally millions of gas buyers. It's really simple to do.

 

I'm sending this note to about thirty
people. If each of you send it to at least ten more (30 x 10 = 300)...and those
300 send it to at least ten more (300 x 10 = 3,000) and so on, by the time the
message reaches the sixth generation of people, we will have reached over THREE MILLION consumers !!!!!!! If
those three million get excited and pass this on to ten friends each, then 30
million people will have been contacted!

If It goes one level further, you
guessed it..... THREE HUNDRED MILLION PEOPLE!!!

Again, all you have to do is send this to 10 people. How long would
it
take?

I once filled up when they were pumping from the delivery truck and I did have issues. I had to get a new fuel filter and have the system cleaned out!
