When you call to schedule an appointment to have dyno tuning done on your vehicle, you might be instructed to make sure that your car has plenty of fuel in it when you drop it off. You might be curious about why you should do this or if there are any special tips you should follow when you take the vehicle in. If you'd like to know more, the points below are all things you'll probably find to be useful and interesting.
It's Best to Be Sure You Have a Full Tank of Gas
First of all, you should not take your vehicle to be dyno tuned if you have not filled up your tank with gas. If you're wondering why this is, you should consider the fact that it might take several hours for the person who is dyno tuning your car to get the job done. Your vehicle will need to be kept running the whole time. Obviously you don't want to have to worry about your car running out of gas while dyno tuning is being done. If the technician who is doing the dyno tuning has to fuel up your vehicle, there might be an additional charge. Plus, once dyno tuning has been done, you will probably be ready to test out your car's newly improved performance, all without having to worry about stopping for gas.
You Should Use the Same Type of Fuel You Normally Use
Next, if you're curious about whether or not you need to add a different or special type of fuel to your vehicle for its dyno tuning, you should consider the type of fuel that you normally use and that you intend to use after your vehicle has been dyno tuned. This is the fuel that you should put in your car for dyno tuning. After all, your vehicle's engine runs differently with different types of fuel, which should be considered when dyno tuning is being done. For example, if you are planning on operating your vehicle with racing fuel, then you should make sure that you fill your vehicle up with racing fuel. Additionally, if you normally add an additive to your fuel tank, you should think about whether or not you will still want to use it after having dyno tuning done on your engine. If not, then you shouldn't add it when having your vehicle dyno tuned.
If you have additional questions, ask the person who is going to be performing the dyno tuning. They can give you more advice about fueling up your vehicle and otherwise preparing for your dyno tuning appointment.
