I'm unsure what good erasing

I'm unsure what good erasing the gaslog entries will do. In the long run it will all work out anyway, especially since the next fill up will average out the previous one.

He used the pump error to boost his mileage. I used to do it too but the only person you screw is yourself

The pump error will work the opposite way the next time around though. It will average itself out. Assuming this is true removing the pump error will actually hurt your gas mileage.

I think if you compare a .3

I think if you compare a .3 gallon fill up to a 10 gallon fill up, those two together will get rid of most of the pump error.

I never said it wasn't a pump error. I said that the next fill up will average out the error.

another factor to consider

another factor to consider at this time of year is thermal expansion in the fuel (cool nights, warm days - at least around here). it'll be particularly apparent when you try to fill an already full tank if the fuel has expanded at fill-up time.

if you want to calc the actual temperature/volume differences, go here for info: i used to have a figure handy (x% vol. change for every n degrees change, but i've forgotten).
