Did you know that the method you use for filling up your Ford vehicle can help or hurt the overall life expectancy? Surprisingly to some, fuel can make a world of difference with your car, truck, van, or SUV.
The first thing you should always make sure you are doing is to buy fuel at reputable service stations. The fastest way to find out if the location is good or not is to go inside and speak to someone who works there. Ask if the fuel is filtered at the pump. If it is, you should also inquire about how often the filters are changed out. Many places do not even have filters, which can leave you with dirty gasoline that will clog up the mechanisms. Others might not mix the solution properly, or they might add water to it – which is a major no-no.
Another maintenance tip you should follow is to never fill up while the tanker truck is still onsite. As the fuel is being pushed into the underground tanks, the disturbance will stir up sediment. This can cause problems with your vehicle’s filters and fuel injectors and lead to poor performance. Just come back the next day or go to another station.
