In other words....do you fill up @ 1/2? 1/4? Below E?

Fuelly really helps look at that...i average a little over 14 gallons per fill, usually the DIC has read "low" for a few miles. Don't think there's anything wrong with that, as long as i dont push it too much and run it dry.

10 to 12 gallons. I have a lot of fill-ups that first click is actually before 10 gallons. I fill to the next dollar. During the summer I fill when I get down to 100 miles to empty. During winter weather I fill at 200 miles.

Warmer months I fill at 1/4-1/2 tank, winter 1/2-3/4. I will only fill at 3/4 tank in winter if I know the car will be sitting all week or I plan a longer drive. I would rather the tank be as full as possible than sit 1/2 full to avoid any possible condensation water issues.

Its also nice in the winter to know even if a blizzard hits and I get stranded somewhere I'm not going to run out of gas. Another advantage, it only takes 1-3 minutes to fill the tank so less time standing out in the cold.

Usually like spaced between 1/2 and 1/4 depending on gas prices down here. Never really think about it too much. Just buy gas when I see a good price and @ 1/4 tank. Still wondering MPG wise if something is wrong with my car. I don't drive hwy much and I am typically @ 30 -32 MPG.

30-32 MPG is good for city driving in the ECO MT, especially if you have a lot of stop and go or short steep hills.

I fill every week or two.....generally at the half tank point.

I tend to ride two wheels till mom nature makes my life miserable......most frequently, a scooter.....100+mpg appeals to the cheap screw in me......fun too.

What's the point of having a car(and payment) if you don't drive that much? Looking through my records, I have burned 639 gallons so far this year in my cruze over 23,400 miles(36.6mpg average).
You drive 23,400 miles around wisconsin ? Dang you are getting a a ribbon for never leaving yer State ....

Looking through my records for this year I will agree there are times I could drive less. My average is 70 miles a day with July being the high of 133 miles a day(4100 miles total that month). I probably won't hit 100,000 miles until next April or May, I drive less than 25 miles a day average in the winter.

I let mine go between half and a quarter tank. Try to keep it above half in the winter.

Isn't running your car on almost E terrible for your fuel pump?

I usually fill some time below 1/4 tank, but before the fuel light comes on. Typically, that's 16 gallons or so, but I have a Diesel and fill it all the way up the neck (which is about 18.3 gallons of total fuel in the tank.)

I can't wait that long to finish filling my diesel. Ridiculous how much foam is produced.
