Have you ever been told that it is very wrong to shake your car when fueling?
On many occasions, majority of drivers shake their cars just to allow them take more fuel but this situation is very worrying, experts have indicated.
Technically, with the fuel tank, when you put in more fuel, there should be a space left for air to mix up with the fuel.
The moment you shake it, it covers all the space, and that could spark fire.
That’s is the reason why you will sometimes see people’s car burning, and they can’t do anything about it .
Experts have therefore advised drivers to cease fueling their car when the fuel pumps nozzle automatically cuts, signalling the tank is full.
How to know if yout tank is full
When the attendant fixes the machine and locks it, the machine will run for some time and cut. When he comes back to press it again and it runs again, it will cut.
When it cuts for the second time, you should know that your tank is full. That is not the time to shale the tank for more fuel to go in there.”
The act of shaking the car overtime will cause the fuel gauge to malfunction and the vehicle may leave the driver on the road in the middle of a journey.
Thank you very much.
