Why You Shouldn’t Let Your Vehicle Run on Empty Often

by Joe Hanna on October 23, 2013

Empty Fuel Tank | Joe's Unlimited ImportsFuel pumps on vehicles can be an expensive fix if they act up, aside from the parts and labour being expensive, the tow bill when your vehicle won’t start is also expensive. To avoid all this misery, we are going to let you in on a little secret!

Don’t let your gas tank run on empty all the time. When there is minimal fuel in the gas tank, your fuel pump has to work in over drive to get fuel to the engine. You also will pick up waste particles that settle to the bottom of your gas tank and put them directly into your engine.

So next time you’re driving and you notice your tank is getting close to empty, do yourself a favour and pull into the next gas station and fill up. You’ll thank yourself in the long run.

I went to see Joe at Joe’s unlimited imports auto repairs to see if he would take me on as a customer. He was very gracious and kind he said of course anytime. I been with my dealer for forty years so it wasn’t easy for me to leave, but the last few times I went the service wasn’t up to par the light on my console wasn’t changed, the seal on my rimmed tires was broken and had to repair the tire at a tire shop $28.00 dollars later and my clear coat started peeling all of a sudden so I ask them not to wash the car again. I telephoned the service manager and of course complete denial on everything. I was going to telephone the owner but thought I’m going to get the same run around. I feel so comfortable and trusting of Joe that I’m going to bring my other two cars there as well.
