And SLOW DOWN !! Like you said Bob, just reducing speed helps greatly !
Too bad nobody can get up for work a 1/2-hour earlier so they dont have to play mario-Andretti every morning on way to work..

in a 20 gallon tank you might get an extra quart in and in the daytime the gas expands keeping the tank full longer. I have filled my tank at night ( work graveyard) and in the morning have had gas leaking out of the top of the fill tube from the expansion.


Gas is stored in UNDERGROUND tanks, that keep the temp's very stable. What you pump is what you get. Any expansion is due to ambient air temps, and warmer expanded gas will have less oooomph than cooler gas.


Up here a lot of gas is stored in ABOVEGROUND tanks on concrete pads complete with rails go keep any leakage from going anywhere especially near the rivers.

Gas here comes from huge above ground tanks about three miles from where we live. There are a half a dozen different companies with tanks and I've seen every brand name truck get filled there. Those heavy tankers are not very gentle to the roads either.

Our sprinter at 65 gets 20+ MPG, whereas at 70-75 we get about the same less in mileage as 330 stated. Makes a big difference we just plan trips with that MPH and schedule accordingly. If I'm late and mostly interstate driving and I use the posted 75 mph you can see the difference!

good tips!

Set more traps at the job , setup funnels , spend more time at the job to make sure the next day your doing the repair and the job is done , also been just going in after them so I can rap it right up that day . That's saves gas
