    I fill when the fuel gauge shows between 1/4 and 1/2.
    If am going on long trips, irrespective of the fuel indication i do a full tank.

    I go for a fill once the needle stands at the red mark and once in a week with 600/- 11.5 ltrs of to the middle and on long drives a full tank

    I was so fond of reserve light earlier after going through forum completely stopped it for the better health of fuel pump and now fill when the level is between 1/2 and 1/4th.

    :D Good decision.
    The only reason I know that light works in my car is, because it was on when the car was delivered. It has never come on ever since :evilsmile

    I do fill, just, after light on, but I do keep an eye on how much KM I have driven.

  6. Normally, I fill up the first week of every month and do a top-up sometime between the third and fourth week when the needle goes below the half tank :)
    In case of a long drive, I fill up the tank a day before the trip.

    For city driving, I usually fill fuel every 10 days and only after the warning light comes up. But, I always keep an eye for the fuel indicator everytime I take my car out and more keenly after a week from last filled day. For Highway runs, I fill the tank up the previous night and look out for a COCO or a decent looking Fuel station when the indicator shows 1/4th tank.

    Randomly - when i cross my favourite bunk where quality is assured i make a point that i refill. As it is i can check my mileage on MID which is fairly accurate, so i dont wait for tankful method.

    Will wait till the reserve light is on and then fill it up to brim, but I do keep an eye on the km run after refueling.
  10. For city use I fill with 500 bucks once in every three days..on highway I try to fill before the needle hits mid tank.
