With winter weather quickly approaching, be certain to keep your vehicle's tank full. Some gas stations can become closed, or pumps can become nonfunctional during heavy storms. In this situation, the last thing you need is to become stranded. Keep your tank full every month this winter to prevent winter-related accidents and issues.

Many people believe that they can keep their tank on empty, and save money on gas. This is untrue, and typically dangerous during the winter months. In fact, the majority of experts say that a full tank actually saves you money. Your car can also become damaged from running on “E” during the winter months. Condensation is formed by shifting and cold temperatures. The water can drip into the gas tank and sink to the bottom. This will block gas flow and halt your vehicle.

Keep your tank past the red this winter. Contact your local Mercedes-Benz of Westwood for any additional questions.
