Re: When to fill up? What gas do you use?

Stupid, wow.

May be, but the science is 100% correct. If we are looking for best mpg (and nothing else) then less weight means less work for the engine and as a result better mpg. This would be espically on a lower powered engines. It may only be by 1/10th of a gallon, but it's a savings.

I didn't say go do it, I was just having some fun.

Re: When to fill up? What gas do you use?

Sorry

It is true you will save money on gas by filling half a tank, but is it worth it if you have to stop at the gas station 2 times a week or more? I think an extra 32 lbs in gas is probably going to cost you maybe 1 mpg which in turn would only yield an extra 10 miles per tank.

To me you can save your "time" and possibly maybe money by just filling up your tank full.

It's 1/100th in savings in gas vs. filling up twice as often. So for me, 40 cents is not worth it for me to fill my tank up twice as often.

Re: When to fill up? What gas do you use?

I'm in Canada and Nissan Canada had a promotion when I bought my cube that offered 20 cents off per liter with a PetroCanada card. Naturally, I am using Petrocan until the balance on the card runs out. One peeve with both petrocan and costco gas where I live is the high ethanol content in their gas seems to reduce power (maybe) and mileage for sure.

I will switch back to Shell when my Petrocan discount expires, I know I'll get better mileage with it, I check mileage every single fill up and Shell never disappoints.

Lol I just fill at whatever gas station I'm passing by.

I fill my cube tank once it reaches to the quarter of the tank.

hi, i live in alamogordo,n.m.i fill up at usa gas station located in walmart parking area. main reason- gas comes from texas and has no ethanol added. works for me.

Toronto.

I fill up when low gas light blinking. I use PetroCanada/Shell/Esso gas. Mostly 87 octane but 89 octane once in awhile.
Btw, never had prob so far.
