One of the things that happens when you drive your car on “Empty” is condensation. It builds up in the gas tank, therefore water gets into the gas tank which then travels to the engine and we all know that water messes up the engine. This also applies for people who live in humid places, where dirt builds up and can also ruin your engine. In conclusion, always try to fill up when you have about a quarter left in the tank.
Always be aware of your surroundings so you don’t have to break for no purpose. Not only is this dangerous to you but also to the people around you. In addition, you’re ruining your brake pads and rotors. You’re just wasting them.
A lot of inexperienced drivers will hear weird sounds while driving and completely ignore it. Anything that sounds out of place, probably is. Whenever you hear something wrong, take it to the dealer or the mechanic. Don’t ignore it, becuase a small problem can turn into something big if you don’t do something about it.
This happens to a lot of people. Whenever they see the green light, it’s just petal to the metal. Of course, if you have a performance car, it’s cool to do a couple of times. However, you should never do this on a consistent basis. You’re going to be at the gas station more than you’re going to be on the road. Not only that, you can also ruin your engine. You also look like a tool…
You should do this at least once a month. In newer cars, you are able to see it just from you dashboard. If not, there are little monitors you can buy that will do it for you. It’s a small investment that will be so worth it in the long run with gas. Having low tire pressure can be a hazard as well, you’re car isn’t functioning at full potential.
