Filling your tank in the morning gets you more mileage

Good try, but no. The theory behind this myth is that petrol expands with heat – which is true – so if it’s cooler, you can fit more of it into your tank. But the fact is fuel is stored in tanks below ground where the rising temperature of the day plays no part in the density of the petrol, so fill up whenever you wish.

Letting your fuel run low is bad for your engine

Nope. “The common misconception here is that if you drive on ‘the fumes’ your engine will begin to ingest ‘rubbish’ or sediment-littered fuel from the bottom of the tank. But the fuel tank is designed so that the fuel pickup always sips from the bottom of the tank, meaning it is always able to draw fuel. Contrary to popular belief, when you’re running low the quality of the fuel being used by the engine is no different to when the tank is full.”

Premium fuel makes your non-premium car run better

False. When we pull up to the pump, there are more options than ever; words like power and premium, and enough different oils and lubricants to drive anyone mad. And while it may be more expensive, it isn’t any cleaner or purer than regular fuel. “While it is less combustible, which benefits powerful performance engines, it won’t benefit the vehicles of most daily drivers as all types of fuel have to meet the same standards.”

My range readings are wrong

Unlikely: while the fuel gauge tells drivers exactly how much fuel is in the tank, range readings are calculated based on longer term driving patterns. It’s not always clear where myths come from, how they catch on, or why misconceptions can sometimes become the perceived rule. But now you know that following these myths would not get you to save fuel, but the tips below surely can.
