Tip#1. Fill your gas tank when it's about half full. You'll lose less gas to evaporation.

Tip#2. Fill you tank when it's empty. You don't want to haul all that heavy gas around.

So who's right?

I would error on the side of #2.

That way if you catch a lower than normal price you fill up.

#1 in the winter for less moisture condensation in the tank,
#2 rest of the year
www.gasbuddy.com to check for the lowest prices around and along travel routes.

fill tank in evening when temp is lower...
in a 20 gallon tank you might get an extra quart in and in the daytime the gas expands keeping the tank full longer. I have filled my tank at night ( work graveyard) and in the morning have had gas leaking out of the top of the fill tube from the expansion.

On days that are nice, I ride this when checking my in-town mole line. I can get 50 or so Steve's traps, a trowel, probe, and 20-oz Mountain Dew in a Craftsman tool bag under the seat.

124 mpg.

Jason, I tried always turning right and wound up right back in bed. Come to think of it, on some days I should never have got out of bed.

I slowed down from 70 to 65 and my Dodge's eco kicks in, I gain 100 to 125 miles More per Tank if I just slow down... I only lose 5 minutes in an hours trip.

When speed doubles wind resistance goes up 4 times.As well braking goes up 4 times.So 4 times the wind resistance at 60 vs. 30 mph.

Gas is stored in UNDERGROUND tanks, that keep the temp's very stable. What you pump is what you get. Any expansion is due to ambient air temps, and warmer expanded gas will have less oooomph than cooler gas.

Slowing down 5 mph will give you approx 7% better gas milage.
Cleaning all the crap out of the trunk/bed/back seat will reduce the weight load.
Overinflating tires doesn't do anything for you, but underinflated tires creates more drag and will wear out the tires quicker.

Didn't we do this the last time broke 4.00????????

This would be ok if "corporate America" would lower their fees after gas declines..........\
