Reasons for Keeping Your Fuel Tank Full This Winter

Leaving the fuel tank near empty in the winter can be problematic as the temperatures dip below that freezing mark. The last thing you want is to be stranded without a running car all because you didn't remember to fill the tank with gas.

The more room inside the gas tank for air, the more condensation can form. That condensation will drip water into the tank, and when temperatures drop, could freeze solid in the fuel line. The car may have been running fine on your way to work, but eight hours later in freezing weather, ice formed in the fuel line and now the car can't start. Keeping the tank low in winter is a deadly mix because if you run out of fuel miles from a service station at night, you could literally freeze in your car unable to get the heat working.
