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.

    The only problem is you cannot keep the gas tank full all the time. If you reduce the amount of gasoline in your tank, you reduce the gross weight of the vehicle and in theory increase mileage. You answer is good for New England, but not for Louisian

    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.
