Running out of gas is never a happy occasion, but when it happens, you need to have someone there to help you get fueled up and back on the road headed to where you need to be. Many folks don’t realize that fuel delivery is part of the services provided by roadside assistance, but fuel delivery is an essential service when you find yourself out of gas. Delray Beach 24/7 Towing knows how important it is to be there for our customers, and we want to do everything we can to keep customers safe when they are on the road.
There are many reasons why it’s better to have fuel delivered than trying to go it alone.
The Benefit of Fuel Delivery
Running out of fuel is a bigger issue than many people realize. That’s why relying on a towing company to bring you fuel is an important decision to keep your vehicle running and yourself safe. Here are some reasons why fuel delivery is the right choice when you run out of gas.
Running Out of Gas is Bad For Your Car
While it is not widely known, as we drive our cars, use the gas in the tank and fill up again, sediment gets into the gas tank and settles at the bottom. Over time the amount of sediment in the tank builds, and the more we empty the tank and refill it, the more and faster it builds. The problem with this is that once our gas tank gets too dirty, running out of gas can cause problems because the engine then begins sucking in a lot of that sediment that has built up.
This can cause damage to your engine and can even make it so that your car won’t run as effectively as it should. In the worst case, your vehicle may stall out altogether. That’s why it’s a good idea to call Delray Beach 24/7 Towing when you run out of gas because not only will we be able to bring you enough gas to get you rolling again, but if something should happen, you’ll have one of our experienced tow truck drivers there to give you a tow if your car won’t start. You can never be sure if running out of gas is the only problem that your vehicle has when you end up stranded on the side of the road.
Leaving Your Vehicle Unattended is a Bad Idea
That’s right, even if you have a gas can and are willing to make the hike to the nearest gas station, it’s never a wise idea to leave your vehicle unattended on the side of the road. Firstly, you’ll want to make sure your vehicle is off the road and out of the way of traffic, but afterward, it is best to stay with your car and call for help.
This is especially important if you have children or pets in the vehicle, as their health can be at risk if left in a car for too long. There is also the risk of theft or crime being done to your vehicle.
Walking to a Gas Station Can Be Dangerous
Depending on your location and the time of day, walking to the nearest gas station can be a dangerous proposition. Not only will you have to walk several miles to get gas possibly, but you’ll also likely be walking along the side of the road or may even have to cross traffic to get to the station. That’s besides the fact that it can be exhausting and incredibly time-consuming to go to and from the station and back safely.
At night this is particularly dangerous as you likely won’t have any reflective safety gear or a means of being seen. There is also the possibility that some stations are not open, which can make your entire trip a waste of time.
Rather than take the risk of trying to get gas yourself and bring it back, it’s faster and safer to call one of our drivers at Delray Beach 24/7 Towing and let us take all the worry and hassle away by bringing you the gas you need straight to your vehicle.
