Why Keeping Fuel in Your Gas Tank is a Bright Idea

The last thing that you want is to be stranded in Anchorage, AK during the dead of winter, but that is what you are risking when you drive with a tank almost out of gas. These are things to consider about not getting a full tank of gas in the winter, and the BMW of Anchorage team is here to help.

An empty fuel tank means the back of your vehicle is lighter, and that makes it harder for the tires in the rear to hug the road. A full tank of gas can give the back that added weight needed to avoid swerving on icy roads. The empty take can attract condensation, and that moisture drips into the tank and will eventually freeze in the gas line. The car may not be able to start in freezing temperatures if the water is frozen.

Driving with hardly any gas and breaking down means you will not be able to keep the car running and heater on to stay warm. Drive to our Anchorage service center and we'll inspect your fuel system for issues.
