Newnan & Coweta: I’ve got Water in my gas tank!

Have you ever gone to a gas station and put gas in your tank, but were not aware that there was water in the gas? Well, you would not know if any water has been put into your gas tank until your car starts to seriously act up and especially when you are going uphill. Trust me, I have been through that horrible mess before, and it was a very tiring and stressful experience.

It can mess up your tank and your new car. What does it feel like when you have water in your tank? Well, it’s a lot like you are being pulled back and forth while you are going very slow. Surging forward and back…eventually, your new car will stop all together.

What do you do when this happens? Apparently putting rubbing alcohol into the tank will revert your new car back to its normal driving condition. Alcohol supposedly takes the water, evaporates it, and even cleans your gas. Although, I was very reluctant because I worried that the rubbing alcohol would do more damage to my new car than good, I took this advice and put alcohol in it.

To my surprise, it worked! The rubbing alcohol took the water right out. Keep in mind, in some cases, this will not work, and you may need to replace your gas tank. This is usually the case when you have a lot of water in your gas tank or in your engine.
When water gets in the gas, it goes into the engine and makes the car sputter and choke, so it might not be a bad idea to keep some rubbing alcohol in your new car just in case it happens to you.

Still having issues? Give us a shout!

Does anyone else have any advice on this matter?
