A lot of people are what I like to call “serial toppers.” These are all good folk who just happen to not believe their tank is as full as it should be when the pump shuts itself off. The truth of the matter is, once the pump shuts itself off, please do not try to top that tank off!
You may ask yourself, “why?” Well, the answer is actually very simple. There is something in cars nowadays that wasn’t really around back in the earlier days of automobiles. We have vapor recovery systems, which are great for the environment. If you try to force more gas into the tank, it can spill over into the vapor recovery system and cause hundreds of dollars worth of damage.
If you are experiencing any issues with your gas tank, come in and see us. If you live in Essex, Burlington, South Burlington, Colchester, Winooski, Williston, Shelburne and anywhere in the State of Vermont be sure to contact Handy’s Service Center for all your auto repair needs!
