    People say “Nothing is permanent except Change” We all know this fact.
    We all know everything keeps changing in one way or the other. But there is one thing that keeps changing in just one way, only one way. We are talking about a commodity that is an integral part of everyday life . But the problem with the most important commodity is that its cost is ever increasing as "rajanikanth's fans list”. Yes, if you guess that we are referring about petrol, then you are right. It’s been an every day problem from a prolonged time. Like rajinikanth says”mun veitha naan kaalai pin veikamaten” the petrol prices have been moving in one way, only one way. It goes Up, Up above the world so high!
    There have been strikes and protests to reduce the cost of petrol. But we are not going to talk about that. Let’s stop complaining and act smart. So, our first area to concentrate is, how to save petrol? Here are some ways.
    Buy or fill up your car or bike with petrol in the early morning, when the ground temperature is still cold. Remember that all service stations have their storage tanks underground. The colder the ground, the more dense will be the fuel. When it gets warmer, petrol expands. So, when you fill your vehicle’s tanks in the afternoon or in the evening, one litre is not exactly “a litre or 100ml”. In the petroleum business, two aspects, the specific gravity and the temperature play an important role. one degree rise in temperature is a big deal for this business. But the service stations do not have temperature compensation at the pumps.
    Another important tip is to fill up when your tank is HALF FULL. The reason for this is, the more fuel you have in your tank the less is the volume of air occupying its empty space. Petrol evaporates faster than you can imagine.
    Another reminder, if there is a fuel truck pumping into the storage tanks when you stop to buy, DO NOT fill up--most likely the petrol/diesel is being stirred up as the fuel is being delivered, and you might pick up some of the dirt that normally settles on the bottom.
    But there is one solution that could make you even more smarter, healthier, eco-friendly. Yes, Let your vehicles take rest and Start walking, go eco friendly and save the planet!
