Severe Storm in the Mountains? Check How to be Served at IPT Stations during the Storm

A snowstorm hit our country last week along with heavy winds and torrential rain falls. It was the coldest storm to hit Lebanon this year with snow falling at altitudes as low as 600 meters in some areas. 

Along with the dip in winter temperatures, the fuel efficiency of your car drops during colder months. Tests show that when temperatures drop by 15C, a car’s gas mileage drops by nearly 12%. 

Through experience in high altitudes, IPT Stations owners come together from different regions to share some tips with you, ensuring your vehicle runs more efficiently this winter while also saving energy.

Mr. Nicolas Sfeir – IPT Station in  Ajaltoun: “We always advise our customers when driving in the mountains during the storm to reduce the pressure in their tires for better grip on the road, add ELF Anti-freeze in the radiator and in the windshield water tank to prevent frozen pipes, put their wipers up and away from the windshield to prevent them from breaking and freezing.”    

Mr. Jean Bou Gharios - IPT Station in Kartaba: Winter roads can be dangerous and can be closed at any time,  that’s why  the most important for us during a storm is to clear the stations’ entrance to facilitate passage of all the cars and ensure the availability of all products and services available such as Fuel , Diesel,  antifreeze ,  Inspect your battery’s fluid and cables…
