It ALWAYS does that to me. I'll fill up and then it drops like insane, or I'll wait a day to late and it'll jump 30cents over night. Its 22cents cheaper now than the last time I filled acouple days ago.

Telco, call me nuts, but I bet you wouldnt see a drop in FE if you did load a Hummer up with cement. My father owns a H2 SUT and always gets 10.5 - 10.7. We drove from Maryland to Flordia and back the other week, pulling a 3000lb 18' long boat, 4 people, and probably 100-200 pounds of luggage. It stayed 10.6 nearly the entire time, but dropped to 10.5 on the way back in the mountains.

And yes, I remember being pissed when gas hit 2bucks.

I fill up when my needle is just starting to get PAST the red zone. Ford engineers must be really cautious folks, because this means I still have ~2 gal left.

I like to fill up between 0/8 and 1/8. However, it's normally 1/8. I like to turn over the contents of the gas tank, especially since I'm adding solvents to it.

However once I have a nice baseline (i.e. I've stopped modding), I may try to do a few tanks of filling up at 1/2 or even 3/4 to see if there is an improvement.

I fill up more often (around 1/2 tank) if the prices are rising.
If the prices are falling, I fill up when the tank is almost dry (no bars showing, at which point the Insight has at least 60 miles left in the tank).

Using this procedure will, over the long term, save you a lot of money

I have a get gas light, when that comes on, I have a gallon or so till it runs dry. Its pretty accurate. When that comes on, I hit the first station...
