Gas Saving Tip: Does Filling Up in the Morning Really Save Gas?

In a troubled economy, people are looking for tips on how they can cut extra expenses. When it comes to you car, the obvious place to cut costs is in fuel. So how do you lower gas consumption?

One way to do this is to fill up your gas tank in the morning. Gasoline is a liquid and it expands and contracts with temperature change. So there’s more mileage in dense cold gas than there is in warmer gas.

Since gas is sold by volume, if you fill your gas in the morning you will be amazed to see that in afternoon you have the same amount of gas. How is that possible? That’s because cold gas gives you 1.1 gallon of mileage compared to warm gas. Just using this simple tip can save you money. All you need to do is to get up a little earlier in the day and stop at the gas station on the way to work.
