The winter months are long and very cold here in Sioux City, IA. What people don’t realize is that when you let your gas tank run very low, you could be harming your vehicle. We here at Knoepfler Chevrolet know all about the myths regarding low fuel levels and how it can be beneficial for your gas mileage numbers.

This is completely a myth, and actually it is much more beneficial to keep your gas level as high as you can in order to keep your vehicle running and to protect the fuel lines. The last thing you want to happen is for your vehicle to run out of gas on the side of the road during a blizzard. This would leave you stranded, waiting for help.

Also, low levels of fuel will allow for ice to build up in your fuel lines and cause damage to your vehicle that will require some costly repair work. Of course, we can help you out at our Chevrolet service center, but we hope that you’ll take our advice and keep a full tank of gas this winter to avoid costly repairs.
