Usually I keep it at least 1/2 full but this was an unusually lean month & I drove quite a ways with the gas light on. Now I know, if need be, how far I can take it.

If I am on the road I usually fill at about 1/4 tank. In weekly driving we go to Sams Club on a weekly basis and have a total budget to spend there. When we get done shopping inside the store we go to the Sams gas station and and spend the balance of the money we have budgeted that week. Sounds kind of complicated but it works for us.

Fill Up at 1/4 of a Tank. I like to have some margin of safety.

I try to remember to fill it when half empty but it usually ends up closer to a quarter of a tank
