Fuel Health For Your Volvo or Toyota

  • Friday, February 23, 2018

Here at ACC UK Ltd, multi award winning Independent Volvo and Toyota Service, Repair & MOT garage based in Farnborough, Hampshire, we like to bring you handy hints and tips on how to maintain your Volvo or Toyota and how to save money on your annual car running costs. We also like to keep you informed of changes to laws relating to driving and car ownership.

The blog this week is about the fuel in your Volvo and Toyota. When you take your Volvo or Toyota to your local independent garage for it’s MOT, you must ensure that there is sufficient fuel in the tank as they will need to check the emissions. In order to pass your MOT the fuel cap will need to be secure. If it does not fit properly or you think there may be a leak get this seen to before your MOT.

File Health

Always keep your fuel topped up, try not to drive around with the minimum amount of fuel in your tank, you never know when you will be stuck in stationary traffic behind an accident, especially if the weather is particularly cold or it is raining and you need heat to keep warm and stop your windows from fogging. If you are driving to unfamiliar places make sure you have sufficient fuel, you may not know where the next petrol station is. Try not to rely on your petrol warning light as it may not come on. If different people will drive your car or you regularly drive different cars it is good practice to put a green sticker on your fuel cap to help remember if it is unleaded fuel. Putting the wrong fuel in your Volvo or Toyota can be a totally avoidable expensive breakdown. Happy Motoring Folks!
