Fuel Savings Tip for September
Fill up the gas tank before it hits reserve. Running the tank low creates two problems. The pump can overheat causing it to fail intermittently or outright and creating a very expensive repair, typically $500 or more. At any rate fuel pump service life will be shortened dramatically. This situation can also cause a check engine light resulting in expensive diagnostic time. Fill the tank when it gets down to a quarter full and save yourself some money.
