Tips Isi Petrol

22 Ogos yang lalu, kerajaan mengumumkan penurunan harga runcit petrol RON97 sebanyak 15 sen dan RON92 sebanyak 22 sen, masing-masing kepada RM2.55 dan RM2.40 seliter. Harga diesel pula diturunkan sebanyak 8 sen kepada RM2.50 seliter, berkuat kuasa 23 Ogos.

Penurunan harga ini bertujuan untuk mengurangkan beban yang ditanggung oleh rakyat terutama yang berpendapatan rendah. Terdapat juga kemungkinan penurunan harga minyak ini bertujuan untuk 'memancing undi' berikutan berlakunya pilihan raya kecil P44 parlimen Permatang Pauh pada 26 Ogos yang lalu.

Memandangkan nilai penurunan harga minyak ini kecil dan masih dianggap membebankan rakyat kebanyakan, maka terdapat beberapa tips yang berguna untuk mengisi petrol ke kenderaan anda.
  1. FILL UP YOUR VEHICLE IN THE EARLY MORNING WHEN THE GROUND TEMPERATURE IS STILL COLD. Remember that all service stations have their storage tanks buried below ground. The colder the ground, the denser the fuel. When it gets warmer, petrol expands, so buying in the afternoon or in the evening, your litre is not exactly a litre. In the petroleum business, the specific gravity and the temperature of the petrol, diesel and jet fuel, ethanol and other petroleum products play an important role. A 1 degree rise in temperature is a big deal for this business. But the service stations do not have temperature compensation at the pumps.
  2. WHEN YOU'RE FILLING UP, DO NOT SQUEEZE THE TRIGGER OF THE NOZZLE TO A FAST MODE. If you look, you will see that the trigger has 3 stages: low, middle, and high. In slow mode, you should be pumping on low speed, thereby minimizing the vapours that are created, while you are pumping. All hoses at the pump have a vapour return. If you are pumping on the fast rate, some of the liquid that goes to your tank becomes vapour. Those vapours are being sucked up and back into the underground storage tank so you're getting less worth for your money.
  3. ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT TIPS IS TO FILL UP WHEN YOUR TANK IS HALF FULL. The reason for this is, the more fuel you have in your tank, the less air occupying its empty space. Petrol evaporates faster than you can imagine. Petroleum storage tanks have an internal floating roof. This roof serves as zero clearance between the petrol and the atmosphere, so it minimizes the evaporation.
  4. IF THERE IS A FUEL TRUCK PUMPING INTO THE STORAGE TANKS,WHEN YOU STOP TO BUY, DO NOT FILL UP. Most likely the petrol/diesel is being stirred up as the fuel is being delivered, and you might pick up some of the dirt that normally settles on the bottom.

Diharapkan tips2 yang telah diberikan ini akan memaksimumkan nilai wang anda.

aku dpt email dr org yg keja dgn comp minyak kat Durban.dh 31 tahun keja.katanya la...

base on the tips,ada logiknya gak.especially isi awal pagi sbb suhu rendah & sejuk.team F1 pn akan sejukkan dulu minyak sebelum isi ke keta F1 tu..

kalau nak confirmkan, hg cari la kat internet.study fuel characteristics.sebab apa yg dia bgtau ni relate dgn fuel charac..

jangan risau la gaco.kenari hg xkan jadi apa2 punya la..

insyaallah sang kenari/hijau kuning akan terbang tinggi lagi season depan.

red giant/gergasi merah kuning lepak ja la kat bawah.mana boleh naik atas sbb berat.haha
