Icon14 Helpful Gas Tips

well i read this last night in an article my mom had and since has lost

1:
only fill ur tank in the morning whne the gorund is coldest...warm gas expands into vapors and when u pump it u get more vapors than liquid

2:
there is 3 settings on the pump...low medium and high...use the low becuz then u will slowly suck more gasoline up...when u use the higher faster settin u get more fumes in ur tank and plus the meter sometimes reads wrong

3:
always fill up when ur above half tank...we all know y but if u didnt...the more air in the tank the more likely the tank is to sweat...if it sweats there will be water build up in the tank...gas + water = bad...also if there is derpis in the bottom of the tank u wont suck it all up...

4:
if u see the tanker fillin the tanks...dont get that gas...when the trucks movin down the road the dirt and junk in the bottem of the tanker trailer will be all over in the gasoline...floating around in it...also it will stir up whats in the bottem of the tank in the ground

i thikn they all seem to add up but nick said nah...u tell me



later

#1 is actually under debate to where they will have pumps that meter the gas based on how much is actually being pumped, not how much would be pumped at 72 degrees (standard). #4 I knew about, and #2 I might try. Don't care about #3. I've only got a 12 gallon tank anyway :P

1 isnt true. A, gasoline is no where near a gaseous form at normal temperatures here in the U.S. plus, as far as they keep those tanks underground, the temperature rise is MINIMAL at best. even at 120 degrees, 10 feet under ground would still be well below 100 degrees. the ground is an EXCELLENT insulator. which is why people are starting to build houses underground with less then just a FEW FEET of earth between them and the outside air. B. the pump is SUBMERGED. there is no chance in hell you will get fumes.

4. is BS. since A. the pumps have filters on them. and B. when they fill up the underground tanks the trucks sit off to the side and are filled in a similar fassion airplanes are filled, by a universal receptical that attaches directly to the truck by a long hose. and those hose is stored INSIDE a sealed metal box.

2 i can see.... but not really because again, the pump is submerged in the fuel.

3 is the only true one.

yea, I always fill up with more than half a tank, I dont want any debris, plus when the tank gets real low its bad for the pump.

I never fill up when I see a tanker, pumping all the crap into the reservoirs under ground will stir up the debris on the bottom of the tank, as well as all the debris that is in the tanker itself.

gas atomizes very easy that is why i believe there is truth to number 2 and truth to number one.

yea easily atomizes in small amounts when its sprayed into a large open area with air moving around. but when its in a pressurized stream in an enclosed area like rubber hose with little to NO air in the hose (besides air bubbles). atomization is just a rapid expansion/depressurization of gas. it cant expand when its pressurized in a sealed hose. gas atomizes in the intake manifold because it goes from being pressurized in a tube to suddenly unpressurizing and having room to expand (aka being SPRAYED) into a large open area that is primarily air which is moving around at a fast pace and there is plenty of air for each particle of gas to attach onto.

ok its not letting me edit anything. stagnant gasoline in a SEALED container with NO moving air, will not atomize..... (like in a large underground tank at a gas station) it will vaporize yes, but the vapors are minimal, especially underground in a cool place. once it starts moving and there is air around, then yes it will atomize.

I wish I could remember where I was reading this, but the pump bases the amount of fuel actually pumped on the "size" of the fluid at either 60 degrees (I believe). In the summer, you'd receive less, and in the winter, more. In Hawaii, they have to set their pumps differently because customers were significantly short changed, since the weather is rarely 60 and below
