Only buy or fill up your car or truck in the early morning when   the ground temperature is still cold. Remember that all service   stations have their storage tanks buried below ground. The colder the   ground the more dense the gasoline, when it gets warmer gasoline   expands, so buying in the afternoon or in the evening….your gallon is not   exactly a gallon. In the petroleum business, the specific gravity and   the temperature of the gasoline, diesel and jet fuel, ethanol   and other petroleum products plays an important role.

When you’re filling up do not squeeze the trigger of the nozzle to a fast mode If you look you will see that the trigger has three (3) stages: low, middle, and high. You should be pumping on low mode, thereby minimizing the vapours that are created while you are pumping. All hoses at the pump have a vapour return. If you are pumping on the fast rate, some of the liquid that goes to your tank becomes vapour. Those vapours are being sucked up and back into the underground storage tank so you’re getting less worth for your money.

One of the most important tips is to fill up when your Petrol tank is HALF FULL. The reason for this is the more Petrol you have in your tank the less air occupying its empty space. petrol evaporates faster than you can imagine. petrol storage tanks have an internal floating roof. This roof serves as zero clearance between the Petrol and the atmosphere, so it minimizes the evaporation. Unlike service stations, here where I work, every truck that we load is temperature compensated so that every litre is actually the exact amount.
