Picture A Day – 29 September 2009

Nope, I sure didn’t post much today.  Been a bit tired.  And NCIS was on 8)

But mostly just tired.  There’s issues going on in the life of someone very close to me that I don’t necessarily want to air out over the entire gosh darned Internet, but which have me not sleeping quite so well.

But at least I got this post up :wink:

29 September 2009 - Verifying the accuracy of the gas pumps

29 September 2009 - Verifying the accuracy of the gas pumps

I think they check the accuracy of all the gas pumps about once a year, but I’m not sure.  I do wish there were some way to compensate for temperature across the nation and whatnot, but I guess that’s asking a bit much.  I saw this guy checking out the pumps at a Rebel station while I was picking up carbonated caffeine :P

I wonder, just how much does gasoline expand when it’s heated to over 110° in the summer?  Remember that a gallon of cold gasoline is more dense and hence has more energy than a gallon of hot gasoline.  That means the colder gas will take you farther and you’ll see better mileage.

Oh well, at least I know that they check to make sure that what the pump says is a gallon of gas actually is a gallon of gas :)

Have fun out there :mrgreen:
