The Ministry of Consumer Affairs has recently issued a circular regarding the filling of fuel in vehicles. This circular aims to address the increasing number of vehicles and the need to ensure their proper maintenance. Additionally, the ministry has accused vehicle manufacturers of displaying less capacity in their fuel tanks.
Precautions to be taken while filling fuel
In the circular, the ministry has outlined some precautions that should be taken while filling fuel in vehicles. It warns against filling the fuel tank to its maximum capacity, as this can lead to fuel leakage and an increased risk of fire.
The circular advises leaving some space in the tank to accommodate the vapors that come out of the petrol. Filling the tank to its maximum capacity can create excessive pressure, causing more fuel than necessary to enter the engine and affecting its performance. Moreover, a full tank can lead to fuel spillage when the vehicle is tilted.
Impact on engine performance and emission levels
The guidelines also highlight the impact of a full fuel tank on engine performance and emission levels. When the tank is full, the fuel does not burn properly, resulting in the emission of more hydrocarbons. This not only affects the engine’s performance but also contributes to environmental pollution.
Ministry’s appeal to vehicle companies
The Ministry of Consumer Affairs has appealed to vehicle companies to inform their customers about the risks associated with filling the fuel tank to its maximum capacity. By spreading awareness, the ministry hopes to encourage drivers to follow the new guidelines and prevent accidents or incidents related to fuel leakage and fires.
