I donít notice until Iím on E most of the time...

My 8 year old keeps an eye out for me. Heís very cautious.

But itís not like Iíve ever run out... as soon as it gets below a quarter, I try to stop (if I notice).

I also prefer to get gas at a station on the way to work now, so sometimes I check on Thursday to see if I need gas (Iím off Fri-Sun).

I'm a B - unless I know it's going to be inconvenient to stop for gas later. I usually fill at about a 1/4 of a tank, but let it go further if I am on a road trip and I know there will be stations when I'm closer to empty. I'm too lazy to stop more than I need to. I drive mostly through suburbia, so there is no problem accessing gas stations.

A, especially in winter. I had read that it is best to keep a full tank in winter to avoid any condensation forming in the gas tank. My SO is definitely a B.

A for sure. There was a recall on a part on my car and to repair the part the dealership informed me that I had to have less than 1/2 tank of gasoline when I brought the car in. Trouble is, they weren't sure when the part would arrive. I had to keep my car at or about 1/2 tank for over a week! Yes, I went directly to the gas station after the repair.

I imagine you could all guess Iím a big fat A.

My tank is almost at that 1/4 mark right now. I drive rarely, yet itís killing me not to fill it. I haven't filled the tank since pre-Covid, so I paid my mechanic to add stabilizer. Now I sit wondering if Iíll mess that up if I do my compulsive fill-up.

I evidently like waiting until I'm empty, and having to fill up in a blizzard or -20F.

A....... I don't understand those who make life harder for themselves than it has to be. Think ahead.

If you don't have the money, that's entirely different. in my past, I've pumped $2 worth multiple times because that's all I had until payday.

I am a B living with an A... We drive each other crazy! I love it when he uses my car though as I am guaranteed a fill up...

My FIL is also an A and says "It is cheaper to fill a half tank than an empty one.."

I am an A. Do not like getting anywhere near the quarter tank mark. Twice I have been with DH driving on fumes praying for a gas station. Do not like that anxiety, especially when traveling in unknown areas - road trips.

really either! I don't insist on it being full, and I don't let it get to the level of "B". However, if I am in an unfamiliar area, it's A.

Itís funny, I used to be an A because I was raised by a B (that sounds bad). I had to help my mom push many cars off the road and hike to a gas station. The last time this happened was when my DS was about 8 months old and I had no stroller, sling, anything to carry him in. So we found an old shopping cart on the side of the road to put him in for our 1 mile HOT walk with a screaming baby in an old shopping cart to get gas .....my whole childhood was like that.

Somehow I have noticed the tank gets lower and lower each time I go to the gas station. Covid doesnít help either, I have only filled my tank 4 times this year (I have a hybrid and donít go anywhere except for work). So Iím slowly turning into a B.

I understand that you cannot allow your tank to get too low if you have a hybrid because it can damage the electric system.

Closer to B, but I'm really neither. I try to fill up my tank when I get around 1/8 full. When I was in HS/on college breaks I worked at a place that was like 25 minutes away from my house, which was very rare for my hometown. I wanted to do something other than fast food. This was also back when gas was at it's most expensive, around $4 a gallon. I would always stress myself out driving on fumes because I didn't want to go spend the money. As an adult I will never do that to myself again!

That is the time I've been a B. We have had to push the car off the road and hike to gas stations before for tiny amounts of gas just until payday. There was a year or two we pretty much lived on empty. After that, I went A all the way for a little bit. I can't think of the last time I filled the tank because I never drive, but I think I'm closer to a B than an A- I'll fill at around 1/4 a tank left.

Now with a drink, I'm an A Fill 'er up!

I am an A. My parents taught me to always have more than a half of a tank of gas, mainly due to the possibility of getting stuck in the snow and having to wait in the car for help to come. I live in a rural part of Wisconsin and that's a real possibility.

I hate getting gas so I wait and wait and wait! My car has this thing where it tells you how many kilometres you have until you run out of gas. I find comfort in that. My husband says I am not using it correctly...it isn't a game of chicken--me vs the gas tank...but

Ally, it absolutely IS a game of chicken.

And, the ETA on my Google Maps is actually the time to beat, not the arrival time. I get in the car and turn it on with the sole goal of seeing how many minutes I can shave off my commute. So far my best is 5 minutes.
