The borrowed truck

June 26, 2008

So the other day I go to fill up my buddies truck, which I borrowed to move some stuff out of storage.  I use the ATM thingy and I go back to texting or emailing or whatever it was I was doing. Anyway, after a while, the pump stops, so I figure it’s full, right? Pump says $75.00 so it must be. I drive away, and glance down at the fuel gauge only to see it’s only ¾ full. Insane.

 

It got me thinking, is there a way to get more for your dollar? A bit of research, and here’s what I came up with: Fill up in the morning. You see, gas expands in warm weather, so if fill up in the AM when the temperature is cooler, you get denser fuel that contains more energy per gallon. In other words, fill up when it’s cool to get more bang for your gasoline buck!
