Be aware: 

There may be an increase in likelihood of fuel geysering due to a delay in the transition from winter to summer blends at the pump.  Winter blends are more volatile since they are formulated to work in colder weather. The transition to a less volatile summer blend occurs in spring for most areas; however, fuel supplies may be transitioning later than normal due to reduced travel.
