"Consider not returning the car with an empty tank." Trollhättan Favorite Tip by SAAB93

Trollhättan General: 8 reviews and 8 photos

Favorite thing: Before you return the car for transatlantic shipment, consider filling the gas tank so that there is at least half a tank. If you have a full tank, there is less of a chance for moisture condensation. If the tank is very empty, part of the fuel pump will be exposed and subject to oxidation. On the other hand, the shipping company may drain the gas tank if it is too full. Therefore, consider perhaps a 1/3 full tank.

There is a Shell Tankomatic (unmanned station) next to the Beko Bil car dealership in Gothenburg. I used the Statoil station, which has air for tires, one exit before (west of) the one to Beko Bil.
