With millions of cars on the road or about to start a trip, there are many drivers who rush their journey to the limit, all to arrive as soon as possible and not stop at a gas station until it is extremely necessary. But “squeezing” the tank and carrying it in reserve can cause several mechanical problems in the vehicle and even some penalty for the driver.
First of all, if you run out of fuel and your car stops in the middle of the road, in addition to the danger that this parking lot will entail, the driver is exposed to a fine of 200 euros. That is, if an agent finds a vehicle stopped on the road due to lack of gasoline or diesel, he should file a fine for negligent driving of said 200 euros. And it is that until reaching that end a car can circulate about 45 kilometers on average during the reservation, so we should be forecasters.
In fact, as stated in The Provinces, it is appropriate that the level does not fall from the storage room, since the more quantity it has inside it, the less force it must do to take the fuel to the injectors. Since if you “hurry”, two things are caused: the pump must use more force to bring the little fuel that remains to the interior of the engine, and in the grounds is where all the impurities contained in this liquid end.
These impurities “dirty” the inside of the engine and can end up causing the injectors to collapse, with the consequent danger of breaking it. Depending on the number of injectors affected, their repair would range between 205 euros each in gasoline vehicles, and up to 500 in diesel cars.
There will also be possible mechanical breakdowns, since the vehicle will have to use the fuel deposited in the lower part of the tank, where dirt and the remains of water, dust and other components that can get to clog the filter that protects the pump from the tank remain. Deposit. Specifically, the fuel is also responsible for cooling the pump, and its absence can form air bubbles that can trigger a breakdown. Therefore it is advisable not to hurry too much, so that the pump can do its job in a comfortable way, optimizing its performance and extending its life as much as possible. .
