Do you fill your 36 gallon tank every time?

Default Do you fill your 36 gallon tank every time?

seems like a lot of extra weight for just driving around town. Plus most gas stations seem to stop at $75 or $100...

I like to never go below a half tank. Dont know why, just like to keep it full-ish!

Yep filler up. The stopping thing is your credit card, call them and tell them you want the "gas" limit raised. The weight? It's a truck, my mpg do not change

Usually. I think in the ~5000 miles we've put on this truck since it was new, I've only gassed to less than full once...

Most times I do. The only time I don't is when I'm going downstate. I'll buy 10 gallons at the only station in town, at .10-.15 cents a gallon more than I can get it down there. The 10 gallons will get me down there with whatever reserve I already have, 3/8-1/2 a tank. Don't hardly ever drive the 150 up here except for maybe 120 miles at most per month, two trips for groceries.

My goto station's E85 pump goes REALLY slow. I can start, go inside and pick up a few things, wait behind a few people in line and come out yet it still won't be done.


Often I put about 20 gallons in it just because that itself takes what seems like almost 10 minutes.
