When your vehicle suddenly stops and won’t run you may quickly notice that you have run out of gas. Sometimes we under estimate our fuel tank and how much fuel we have left. Other times, you may have had a very distracting day and it slipped your mind that you needed to refuel. When you run out of fuel you may decide to walk to the nearest gas station and fill up a small tank of gas and walk back to your vehicle. However, this is discouraged. Instead, consider contacting a roadside assistance service to deliver you fuel. Calderon Tow & Auto would like to share some of the reasons why it is best to contact roadside assistance when you run out of fuel.
Convenient Fuel Delivery
When you run out of fuel, walking to the nearest gas station may be a very long walk. Not to mention the time it will take to walk to the station and back to your vehicle which will take more and more time out of your day. Roadside assistance can simply drive out to your location and deliver you some fuel. It is much faster and more convenient for you to have the fuel brought to you. Roadside assistance is both a fast and a reliable way to get fuel to you.
Roadside Assistance is Safer for You
Depending on where you ran out of fuel, it may be very dangerous to get out and walk to a gas station. If it is late at night other drivers may not see you. You never want to get out on foot if you broke down on a freeway or highway. Your safety is at risk in a number of different scenarios. Additionally, it not always a good idea to leave your vehicle unattended. To improve safety for you and your vehicle, it is best to stay inside your vehicle with your emergency lights on. Roadside assistance will bring you the fuel and they can use their truck and lights to block your vehicle from traffic and put the fuel in your vehicle much more safely.
Problem May Not Be Fuel System Related
When you break down, it may not just be due to no fuel. Your fuel may be very low, but there may be another reason why the vehicle broke down. When you contact roadside assistance, they will bring you fuel but if that is not the problem they can help determine why the vehicle has failed. They may be able to repair the problem and get you back on the road. If there is a much bigger problem, roadside assistance can call in a tow truck to come and pick you and your vehicle up. Some towing companies may even arrive in a tow truck and be able to tow your vehicle if fuel isn’t the problem. They can tow the vehicle to your home or even to your mechanic if you have made the proper preparations.
