"Fill up" gets me 2 weeks of driving back and forth to work and regular shopping, etc.

Once a week if I actually fill it up. But I usually only do $20 at a time since I usually refill at a 1/4 tank, so I always add gas twice a week.

i know im using the same amount of gas in my F-150 as my ranger does because they get the same mileage but it hurts so much more to fill a 30 gallon tank. i miss the days of $40 fill ups in my ranger, lately i pay no less than $80 for a tank of gas in my F-150.

I can get a good month or two out of a tank the little bit i drive. In the winter or when gas is over $3.10/gal I fill up at half a tank. Summer or under $3.10/gal i usually go down to 1/4 tank. Usually put in 25 bucks worth. Pump shuts off when the pre-paid card is dry (get 5cents a gallon of when i use it!) and the needle is usually on full or just barely under.

We fill up the expedition every time the low fuel light comes on. That usually last the wife 12-14 days drivng back and forth to work. We just fill up since she got to get to work everyday. I never really understood folks who put 20 here 10 there 15 here. It seems to cost more and the net result is your going to use the gas anyhow, just fill it up!

My dad says he does it that way to try and catch the fuel at its lowest, I say what difference is 2-5 cents really going to make given your time going there and back and the little extra miles it puts on. So, we just fill up, we always do it at the low fuel light so we can judge how we did on mpg

You should add a poll, i'm curious to know about the habits of the non-posters.

I never fill it up, because it breaks my heart to see 80$+ go up in smoke. I usually put in 10-20$ depending on gas prices (currently raised to 1.25$/l for no reason).

I don't know how accurate this info is, but i always heard that a lighter car consumed less gas to drive, so having a full tank all the time means you spent more?
