The One Thing You Should Always Do When Pumping Gas
November 30, 2016
Sometimes it feels like half your paycheck goes out to window on gas, but did you know that there’s actually a life hack for getting *way more* gas every time you fill up? Yes, it’s so incredibly simple, but saves you a ton of money at the pump. We don’t know why more people don’t do it.
What is it?
The answer is filling up your gas tank when it’s cold, in the morning! If you look at the weather report for the week, pick the coldest day to fill up your gas and fill up your gas first thing that morning. Why does the temperature and time of day matter? The answer is that gas is more dense when it’s cold, so you literally get more of it per drop. And the morning matters because gas is stored below ground, and it gets warmer and expands as it comes up the ground. If you fuel up first thing in the morning, you’re potentially getting the coolest, aka the most, gas for every dollar you spend!
Wow–that’s a life changer.
