Never Buy Petrol Or Diesel In The Afternoon. Here Is The Reason

A good number of people are aware that it is a good idea to tank up one’s car early in the morning.

Others who belong to the minority actually do not know the reason behind it and I am sure you are one of them.

The reason is very simple.

In the mornings you get more ‘bang for the buck’ or more value for your money spent.

Experts have disclosed that petroleum products expand when they are warm, so because of the expansion you end up with a lesser percentage of fuel for the money you have paid, if you are filling up in the afternoon or during the day.

However in the mornings, when the temperature is usualy cooler, fuel is denser. This is regardless of whether it is in the liquid form or gas.

Please take note ones again that fuel is dense when cold so when you fill up in the mornings, the fuel has been cool for 8-9 hours.

Even in case of compressed natural gas, experts have indicated that one would get better pressure of the fuel.

It is the bulk users like petrol pumps that benefit significantly, where they are taking hundreds of litres at once.

But if you are getting your fuel tank filled up, the best period should be in morning or even at night instead of afternoon.

Thank you very much.
