I just saw your article about NOT topping off the gas tank in our paper.
Topping off the tank is something that I have been doing for years.
I can usually put into the tank another 2 to 3 gallons on each fill up.
To my knowledge I have never had a problem with any of my cars.
Right now a have a Prius that I have had for 10 years.
The reasons that I do this is because I record my gas mileage every time
I fill the tank and want to know what my miles per gallon are that I am getting
for each tank full. I also track my overall average for the life of the car.
If the average starts to drop, then I can have my mechanic look at the car.
That has never happened, YET.
Not filling the tank, my mileage would very for each tank full. Maybe the over all
average would work out to the same.
Another reason I want to do this so that I do not to fill the tank as often. Saving
me trips to the gas station to fill up. This is very helpful on long trips.
Just wondering if I am missing something.
Enjoy reading your articles in the paper.
