Is it better to fill up your gas tank all at once, or little by little ($15 at a time).


I drive a moderate amount, and I usually fill up my tank with about $15 worth a time, unless its at a low price or I'm going on a long trip--then I fill it up completely. Is this an economically efficient plan, or am I wasting money.

    That may be a result of your gas gauge not being entirely accurate. Gas gauges depend upon a float in the gas tank. As the level drops the sloshing of the gas may affect the reading on the gauge. Also, when you fill up, you are probably overfilling.

    With the amount of gas you use, filling up once every 12 days seems practical. If your gas gauge does not work, it is either a bad fuse in the dashboard lights (unlikely) or the float in your gas tank is not working, which means a new gas tank.

    I fail to see what this has to do with the question.
