Listen for the click when filling your petrol tank and then stop. What Are The Effects?
Heat increases the pressure, which causes fuel rises and possilby overflow. So it is important that when it’s hot, you don’t over fill your fuel tank. Additionally, when you over fill your car’s petrol tank you can spill petrol, which releases fumes into the atmosphere and can also damage your paintwork.
Registration stickers can be difficult to remove but with the easy tips below any stubborn ones should come off quickly and easily!
If your window is perspex or tinted, refrain from using a razor blade as it will most likely damage the surface.
1.Rather than a razor blade, rub it with a wad of cottonwool, soaked in nail polish remover or eucalyptus oil, and the sticker will dissolve, then clean glass with methylated spirits.
2.Wet a piece of kitchen cling wrap, paper towel or newspaper with warm water and then place over the rego sticker. Leave for 10 minutes or so to let the warm water penetrate the sticker and weaken the glue. Clean with a glass cleaner and it’s as good as new.
3.Another method is to use a hairdryer. By blowing warm air over the sticker the adhesive will start to loosen or melt. If the sticker is still intact you should be able to remove it in one piece. If any residue is left behind spray on glass cleaner and wipe with a cloth until removed.
Holes in vehicle tanks require urgent attention from a qualified mechanic to ensure your car is safely and reliably repaired.
