We all know that if the car is out of gas, there is no way to drive, and if the GPS tracker is out of power, then the device cannot position. But after I installed a GPS tracker in the car, if the vehicle is out of fuel, will it affect the GPS tracker positioning?


Some users have a misunderstanding when they first buy a tracker, believing that if the vehicle is out of fuel, the tracker will be useless. But in fact, the locator is powered by the car battery and has nothing to do with the vehicle’s fuel. The tracker can still locate, even if the vehicle is out of fuel.



But the lack of gas in the car will still cause some trouble for the car owner. For example, if you suddenly run out of gas while driving, and you cannot find a gas station nearby, you have to call for help. Moreover, if the vehicle leaks gas, the owner can only find out when the vehicle has started, which has caused certain losses to the owner.



If oil leaks or lack of oil can be detected in time, it can be convenient for car owners. Some Sward products have this fuel quantity monitoring function. After installing the GPS locator, you can see the fuel level of the vehicle on the platform. When there is not much fuel remaining or when the fuel level is abnormal, it is very convenient to notify the owner in time.



By the way, although the lack of fuel in the car will not affect the positioning of the GPS tracker, it should be noted that if the owner does not need the car for more than a week or even longer, you must remember to disassemble it. Otherwise, the tracker will always consume the battery power of the cars, which will definitely cause considerable loss to the car battery.
