Nobody enjoys stopping for gas. So we put it off as long as we can because we’re always “too busy” to stop, and when we are finally forced to make a gas run, we are probably rushing to get it over with. However, it turns out that our hurry at the gas tank may be causing us to get less gas than we should be!
As it turns out, pressing the gas lever at full pressure can cause air to get into our tank, meaning we aren’t filling up as much as we could be. However, if you manually hold the lever about halfway down and go slower, the air can’t get into your tank. That way, you’ll be able to last a little bit longer next time before needing to stop for a fillup again.
