Why is it important to ensure you have plenty of fuel during winter months?

With winter well under way and many of us experiencing the first bit of real frost in the mornings, people are keen to ensure that their car is in tip top condition to keep them safe when driving.

The cold weather can often cause a number of problems on a car which you may only be aware of when you come to start the vehicle to go to work or to take the kids to school.

One of the issues motorists often face with the cold weather is issues with their battery. If the battery is not working as it should then it may not hold the charge enough for you to start it next time. This is worsened by the cold weather and often requires the car to be jump started.

In diesel cars the fuel can freeze in very low temperatures and therefore not pump around the system to start the car. This is why it is vital that you keep your car topped up with fuel to avoid sucking the dregs of fuel in to your system but also to prevent it from freezing. The last thing you want to do is run out of fuel stuck somewhere that is cold and dark waiting for recovery.
