Works-for -Me Wednesday (gasoline tip)

It's time once again to post another WFMW tip. Before I share my tip, I wanted to encourage you to stop by and enter my Name That Business contest. I'm giving away either a bracelet and earring set or an embellished bookmark! Check it out!

Now, for my WFMW tip...

Filler' Up

I've been told that if you fill up your car's gas tank in the morning (the earlier the better), you will get about 1 free gallon of gas per fill-up. That's because the gas in the tanks at the station expands during the heat of the day (especially in the summer). You get less for your money later in the day.

With the price of gas these days, I'll try anything to save a buck or two!

Filling up my gas tank in the moring works for me, maybe it'll work for you. To see what works for others, be sure to check out the other links at Shannon's, the creator of Works-For-Me Wednesday!

I've never heard that tip about gas. Do you really get more miles per tank by doing it that way?

And those brownies? Oh, they look so yummy, I am drooling just looking at the picture. I don't think I could make any, because I would EAT them all myself. Not sharing a bit.

And another name for your company...String it up, baby. I don't know.
