When filling up at the gas station, avoid the temptation to “top off” the fuel tank when the pump automatically clicks off to indicate that your tank is full. Many of us top off to round up a gas purchase to the closest dollar, but you risk overfilling your tank and spilling gas. In the summer months, the heat can turn spilled gas into vapor, creating airborne chemicals like benzene. These contaminants pollute the air and can end up in your respiratory system.
