What The Gas Stations Won’t Tell You

Did you know? Gas stations earn on average between 10 and 15 cents on a gallon of gas. But, they earn the least when prices are highest. When the cost of fuel rises, gas stations must reduce their profit margin in order to stay in competition. So, they actually fear gas increase just as much as you do.

Did you know? Oil companies spend lots of money explaining why their gas is better than the competitions. But in reality, one gallon of gas is as good as the next. Additives help to clean your engine, but what the companies don t tell you is that all gas has them. The government requires that detergents be added to all gasoline to help prevent fuel injectors from clogging.

Did you know? You don’t even need gas to run your car. While it is true that all cars run on gasoline, it is also fact that not all cars need gasoline to run. In fact, 6 million cars on the road today (mostly from U.S. manufacturers and built since 1998) are flexible fuel vehicles that can run on E85, a fuel that is 85 percent ethanol and only 15 percent gas.
