Bottini Fuel knows that propane-powered cars are becoming increasingly more popular. With new technology comes new challenges. For that reason, we are going to take some time to discover what you need to know about your new Autogas vehicle. They may not have explained everything that you are going to need to know at the dealership. That is not their job, really. They are only there to sell you the car. They assume that you did your homework prior to making the purchase. If you did not, there is no shame in that. You are not in the minority by far. So, let’s move on to talking about what you are going to need to know about servicing your new Autogas vehicle.
As with any vehicle, there are things that you need to do to keep it in compliance. With gasoline powered cars, this is generally called emissions. Well, since your car will not be producing the same kind of emissions, you are going to be exempt from having to do that. Not only will it save you a substantial amount of money each year, but you will also know that you are not contributing to the rising levels of greenhouse gases. However, there are some things that you need to be in compliance with. For that, you are going to want to make sure that you go to the proper mechanic. Not just any mechanic will know how to work on your car. This may sound like a hassle, but in the end, you will be glad that you don’t have all the other bills associated with owning a gas-powered vehicle.
Though the use of propane is safe, you are going to want some safety equipment to make sure that you are safe at all times. This includes a set of gloves so that if you have a problem, you can turn off the main tank that powers your car. It will be quite cold and if you were to grab that with your warm hand you could injure yourself. This would be by either frostbite or ripping off some skin. In either case, not something you want to go through. When you are working on your car, you will want to make sure that you have some form of eye protection. Remember, not all glasses are rated safety glasses. Ask your optometrist if yours are before you assume they are. Last, you are going to want to make sure that you have a fire extinguisher. This will keep you safe in case a fire happens on your car. Just make sure it is the proper fire extinguisher for the job.
Bottini Fuel is glad that you have made the decision to use a car that will save the Earth from succumbing to greenhouse gases. We hope that we have provided you with some useful information that they did not share with you at the dealership. Just make sure that you are in compliance at all times and make use of proper personal protective equipment. This will make it so that each interaction with the car is a good one.
