If You Run Out Of Gas, Roadside Assistance Can Help

Calls to roadside assistance programs have peaked as a result of motorists running out of gas while out on the road. Since gas prices are so high, people avoid going to the gas station to fill their tanks.

Many motorists run out of gas during snowstorms because they find themselves sitting idly in traffic due to an accident or plows in front of them clearing the roads. This can leave motorists stranded when they run out of gas.

Even though it may be expensive to fill up your car’s tank at the gas station, it is better for your car if you do fill its tank. If you constantly find yourself allowing your car to run on empty, you are more likely to be sucking up sludge that is sitting at the bottom of your fuel tank. This can result in you pump and fuel filter being gummed up. This can cause issues with the car later on.

Motorists need to fill their gas tanks up before cutting it too close if they do not want to be left stranded on the side of the road because they ran out of gas. However, if you do find yourself stuck on the side of the road, it is important to be prepared by signing up with an emergency roadside assistance program that will come and help you by putting enough gas into your tank to help you make it to the closest gas station.
