Gas Pump Meter

Gas Pump Meter

I saw this guy testing the meters on the gas pumps today and asked him a few questions. You’d be happy to know about this:

Q1) Does it really make any difference if you pump gas slowly or quickly? I’ve heard you get more gas if you are not in a hurry.
A1) Yes. The gas pumps are not tuned for slow delivery levels and will “leak” a little extra gas when run at the minimum delivery rate.

Q2) Does gas actually compress at night when it’s cold?
A2) Yes. See the Seraphin picture for the actual math formula to compute the change in volume based on temperature. For best results – pump your gas at night or early morning when the ground temp is lowest.
