When you fill up your tank..Do you wait till you are on empty or do you wait till it is halfway full then filler up?

I like to have it half full that way it won't be so expensive IMO...

  • I like to THINK i'm going to do it at 1/2 tank, but the truth of the matter is that I usually procrastinate until the light comes on!!
    I am better about it in the winter though. LOL
