Tanks are fine, they're below ground and therefore at a stable temp (~55°F) pretty much all the time. Your lines into the dispensers however must be Nitrogen chilled unless you're a bunch of dinguses. Seems like you're a bunch of dinguses.
@mas2de, upvoted for use of the word dinguses, but I have no idea what you’re talking about in regards to nitrogen chilled lines
@ben3s2bike, making fun of them because gasoline has a Very low freezing point so either they cut it with something that has a high freezing point (like water) like dinguses and jack-a-moes or they Really chill their lines (which they don't).
For anyone like who was wondering, its solidification temperature is ranging from 88 to 138 K (-185 ~ -130 °C or -302 ~ -201 °F)
@ItalianSausage, hu, pretty cold winter in s. Antonio
@ItalianSausage, doesn’t diesel solidify at about -20c? I thought diesel froze on artic tucks quite a lot before they heated the lines?
@Mr Moose Knuckle , " Gel point is the temperature at which diesel or biodiesel fuel freezes solid and can no longer flow by gravity or be pumped through fuel lines. This phenomenon happens when a fuel reaches a low enough temperature whereby enough wax crystals have formed to prevent any movement in the oil. For #2 diesel this is usually around 17.5 °F (−8.1 °C)." It is likely diesel in a town that doesn't normally get that cold below ground and doesn't have heated storage tanks.
My gas isn't frozen. $50 a fart ;)
Last time I checked water and gas don’t mix. So the water would be below the fuel and the pumps would still work.
@Poisonwolf, that is true, however the pick up line would be at the bottom of the tank, therefore it would siphon up the water first.
@Assnihilator, water is not compressible so if you “tank” water into your car you’ll notice right away because your engine gets wrecked
@Mr Bombastic, not in the crowd, bro. it would evaporate.
@Poisonwolf, while it doesnt mix directly with gas, it does mess with the ethanol in the fuel.
@JeEpSrUs, which also has a really low freezing point.
The gas itself isn't frozen, the nozzle/pump is frozen to its base. "Pumps can't lift it" Yes, there's poor grammar here, but come on! Basic reading comprehension guys.
@Leslie Knope 2020, "Pumps can't lift it" is referring to the internal pumps "lifting" the gas from the tank underground. It says exactly what it means
@GI Fumbles, I might be wrong, but I do disagree.
Didn't know Hoth had a San Antonio.
Well someone should explain that if it really frozen
Gas freezes around -40 to -50 degrees Celsius. It may freeze if you live in Oymakayon, Russia during the winters.
