Tank Size And Gas Station Makes No Sense

May 8, 2008 about Chevrolet Aveo

The aveo is supposed to have a 11 gallon tank. I made a tight squeeze on the car during a long trip, the ODO says I did 320 miles on that 11 gal of gas, and the gas light was on, so I thought the car was going to die somewhere. Unbelievably, I made it to a gas station, but more shockingly, the car drank down 12 gallons of gas...

hey gas stations fill using a pressure system, which means that if you fill in the afternoon, you are probably going to be putting in about 3-5 % extra gas in your tank at only extra cost. thus it is recommended to fill your gas in the morning. to avoid getting cheated. http://www.dailyfueleconomytip.com/creative-ideas/fuel-economy-tip-fill-up-during-the-coolest-parts-of-the-day/ peace
