I always keep the fuel tank full and typically fill it before it is half. I heard it is the best practice but also keeps too much weight.

Any issues keeping low fuel e.g. at around one quarter? Does it effect fuel pressure? E.g. cause cylinder misfire or issues similar?

I never let the gas tank go below half full either. Never heard about the weight of a full tank of gas being an issue.

I usually fill mine up once it goes just below half.

Probably doesn't apply to our relatively new cars but sediment can form at the bottom of the tank and the sediment could wind up getting into your fuel pump and damage it. Sediment is generally not an issue if you keep it above a quarter of a tank. Actually it's that potential problem that is most concerning to me.

I usually wait till the light comes on. FYI once the distance to empty gets less than 40 it goes blank. At least I think it's 40, it does go blank. It should show a dude walking with a gas can.

This is probably useless info - but I’m running twin turbo’s and somewhere around 1/3 of a tank or less I lose power and get all sorts of errors, but only on hard accelerations. It ‘could’ be fuel pressure, or just the contents of less fuel getting slammed to the back. Traction is everything to me so I prefer a full tank.

Haven't noticed a dude with the gas can but I also drive past the light coming on. As a daily driver it would be annoying to refill at half tank.

What irritates me is the message asking if I want the Navigation to find the nearest gas station each time I start the H up.

That is kind of annoying. It's a good thing we have a dial and can turn if off easy enough. Imagine if you had to go thru that stupid touch screen. :sneaky:

It's been tough but I've slowly been coming to terms with the new infotainment. I liken it to ones acceptance of the loss of a limb over time. Eventually you have to move on but you never forget.
:giggle: It reminded me of "experts noticed a pattern in the experience of grief and they summarized this pattern as the “five stages of grief”, which are: denial and isolation, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance. I guess you have reached the healthy stage of acceptance, good job!

I'll go with a combo: depressed acceptance.
