Sometimes, while driving there are some habits that you are unaware of that can damage your car. One of these habits is not to fill the fuel tank to the full. Gas tanks that are not fully filled can cause potential damage in the long term, including:
1. Machine Difficult to Start
If the volume of fuel is in a small amount (less than half its capacity) then the volume of air trapped in the tank will be much more than that of fuel. Due to the presence of free space and temperature differences, condensation will occur in the tank.
The potential for condensation is also higher when you park your car at high altitudes with air that tends to be wet and foggy. Gasoline in the tank is at risk of being contaminated with water dew, so the quality of fuel becomes poor and causes the car engine to be difficult to start.
2. Rusty Gas Tank
One more impact of not filling the fuel tank to full is the on set of rust. This is related to the evaporation of the fuel tank that is not full, so that dew that sticks to the tank wall over time can cause rust on the fuel tank. Such rust can also cause other car problems.
However, even though it is recommended to fill the fuel to the brim, it is still not recommended to fill it until it overflows from the fuel tank because it can pose a risk of burning when it comes into contact with a fire. Fill the gasoline to the brim as recommended, but don't overdo it.
