this might not make any sense but I was told many years ago when I first started
driving to keep the gas level above half. The way it was explained to me was to
visualize a bathtub. When the tub is full or has a good amount of water in it,
it drains slowly. When the water level is very low, it goes down the drain much
I will be honest, so please don’t spam me. I have NO idea if this is true. It
just is something I learned as a kid and it always stuck in my mind. I’m a
visual learner so that analogy made sense to me. And, it definitely seems to me
the gas goes down considerably slower when I have good amount of it in the tank.

Okay, I’ll bite: how do you save money on gas by not letting your tank
go below 1/2? I would think that keeping it below 1/2 would be better,
because you’re carrying less weigh, and you can still improve your
dollar average by stocking up when prices drop greatly. Very
interested – I love to save on my car’s gas, LOL.
