June 1, 2007, Newsletter Issue #192: Keep gas tank full!

Tip of the Week

Did you know that your gas tank accumulates a ´sludge´ build-up in the bottom? To avoid this sludge from clogging your fuel pump, or causing problems with the carburetor, keep a full tank of gas. When your gas gauge shows half empty (or half full :o), fill up the tank. This also helps when you have a travel emergency arise; you won´t have to worry about running out of gas at night or in the middle of a snow storm! I´ve put as much as 150,000 miles on a car with no fuel pump or carburetor problems. When you drive with your tank 1/4 full or below, the sludge is sucked into your pump and/or carburetor, eventually causing expensive repairs.
