If you are a car enthusiast, you probably know that any situation can happen on the roads. Gasoline is not to be diluted with water.
But after all, sometimes you have to do something, if the gasoline tank is almost empty, and you can not hold out to the nearest gas station.
You will need
- pure water
First, the track must be fairly level. Also for this situation you need a warm season and not too flat and wide gasoline tank.
Secondly, the situation described below is suitableOnly for vehicles that do not have a fuel injection system and an electric petrol pump in the tank. And of course, you need to know the location of the drain plug in the tank of your car.
So, your car has decayed, because inThe gasoline tank ended with gasoline. In fact, it's not entirely accurate to say this. The machine is not capable of further driving because at the moment the intake pipe in the fuel system can not reach the level of gasoline in the tank. Although this gasoline still there is still.
If, under all of the above conditions, there is not a very long distance to the gas station, it will be enough just to add a little clean water to the gas tank.
Here you can remember a little physics. Almost everyone who studied it knows that water is heavier than gasoline in terms of its physical mass. If you pour it into a gas tank, where there are still fuel residues, then it will simply drive out gasoline. In this case, the fuel system inlet can reach the level of gasoline, and the fuel will be used for its intended purpose.
If you did everything as described above, then with a fairly flat road and slow driving you can still reach your destination.
