How to Fill Up a Gas Tank. We all have to fill up our gas tanks to keep
us getting where we want to go. Get your fill on the proper way to fill up
your gas tank at the gas pump. You will need Vehicle Owner’s manual and patience. Step 1. Check to see what side of your car the gas
tank is on and pull up to the gas pump accordingly. Step 2. Place the car in park and turn off your car. Step 3. Pay at the pump with a credit card or pay
the attendant inside the station. Step 4. Open the door to your gas tank and unscrew
the cap. Lift up the gas nozzle and select the octane
level you want for your gas. Look in your owner’s manual for the recommended
octane rating to use for your car. Step 5. Squeeze the nozzle and fill up your tank on
slow mode. Turn your head away so as to not breathe in
the fumes. Many pumps have a locking mechanism so that
you can let go the handle while it continues pumping until the tank is full. Step 6. Remove the nozzle from the gas spout and place
it back into position once the tank is full. Do not keep pumping after it automatically
shuts off. Step 7. Screw the gas cap back on and shut the door. Fill up your gas tank once it gets to about
half empty and make sure your tires are fully inflated to help increase your gas mileage. Did you know As of 2008, $4 per gallon was
the highest inflation-adjusted price for gasoline in the United States since 1918.
